Microcab H2EV Launched in the UK
Coventry University spin-off based in the United Kingdom, Microcab has developed a new hydrogen car called the H2EV. The chassis of the H2EV was created among Microcab, Delta motorsport and Lotus.
In April 2011, I had talked about the title="Microcabs" href="http://www.hydrogencarsnow.com/blog2/index.php/hydrogen-cars/hydrogen-fuel-cell-microcabs-gaining-ground-in-ukupdate/" target="_blank">Microcabs being developed by the University of Coventry in detail. Last week I had talked about how the United Kingdom had opened its first title="public hydrogen fueling station" href="http://www.hydrogencarsnow.com/blog2/index.php/hydrogen-highways/first-fueling-station-on-the-uk-hydrogen-highway-opens/" target="_blank">public hydrogen fueling station along the emerging title="UK hydrogen highway" href="http://www.hydrogencarsnow.com/uk-hydrogen-highway.htm" target="_blank">UK hydrogen highway system.
The H2EV is a four seat microcar with a 3 Kw fuel cell that can run for 120 miles before it needs refueling. A fleet of H2EVs are supposed to participate in a trial by the West Midlands’ Coventry and Birmingham Low Emission Demonstrator (CALEB).
A couple of the safety features of the H2EV are the onboard hydrogen leak detectors and its gunfire resistant fuel tank. Since there are zero emissions the title="Microcab" href="http://www.microcab.co.uk/" target="_blank">Microcab H2EV can be used indoors or outdoors.
