Hydrogen Car


This car uses power from a Hydrogen Fuel cell to generate electricity for the wheel motors. When the car slows down the wheel motors create electricity that is stored in super capacitors. The energy in the capacitors is reused and not wasted. This allows the car to travel 300 miles on a single charge of hydrogen.
