Coming August, the first Danish hydrogen car will hit the streets. Hywet is the name and it's a result of a cooperation between private and public sector.
The extraordinary car will not be extraordinary expensive: The price will be below 200.000 danish crowns, the daily paper Børsen writes.
Substitute for the combustion engine
Denmark is well on the way to getting its first car with a hydrogen engine, a technology which many predict will be the substitute technology for the poluting combustion engine.
The car, which has the name Hywet, is a modification of the original Danish electric car, Kewet, which today is being manufactured in Norway where it has reached cult status.
The hydrogen version is the result of a cooperation between the private and public sector: Heat, Serenergy, Aalborg University, Cemtec and Mariagerfjord kommune.
Fuelcells supply the power
The car, which will see the light of day at August, is equiped with a 13 kW electric engine and a stack of hightemperature PEM fuelcells along with a modern Lithium Ion-battery.
When the car starts it does so with the help from the battery, but after a short while the car changes to run on the fuelcell, which will run constantly and supply the car with the nescesary power from its own powerplant.
