Hy-Cycle - Australia's first fuel cell bike
The newest version of the two-wheeled hydrogen fuel cell vehicle is from Australia's University of New South Wales.
The school's researchers are touting the Hy-Cycle, a hydrogen fuel-cell
bicycle that can go about 80 miles on a full tank, which is about $2
worth of hydrogen. Now, getting the hydrogen to fill the bike's
2.5-kilogram-capacity canister may take some doing, but at least the
researchers are working on ways to boost hydrogen-storage capacity.
Full-cell bikes have been in the works for a number of years but have a
hard time gaining momentum. In 2006, we found a company called Veloform that was working on a methanol fuel-cell three-wheeled bicycle dubbed City Cruiser II. The following year, China-based Shanghai Pearl Hydrogen Power Source Technology Co. went live with a hydrogen fuel-cell bike that had a full-tank range of about 60 miles. The bike coast about $2,600.
