BMW Shows Hydrogen-Powered Car in Los Angeles
Officials from BMW (Germany) traveled to Los Angeles, CA, to show off the fleet of 750hL sedans that run on clean-burning hydrogen. The 10 cars have been shown in United Arab Emirates, Europe, Japan and the US to demonstrate the benefits of hydrogen as a fuel source.
The 750hL features a 12-cylinder engine and has a top speed of 141mph. The car can travel about 200m on a pressurized tank of liquid hydrogen. Wide-scale commercial production of the car is thought to be a decade or more away, though BMW hopes to introduce a hydrogen-powered 7-Series model before then.
