The word

Peugeot 307cc FiSyPAC F/C Hybrid

The last fuel cell hybrid to be seen from Peugeot was the 207 ePure concept in 2006 at the Paris Motor Show. Some improvements have been made, not the least of which is upgrading the chassis to the 307cc (cabriolet coupe).

The 4-seat cabriolet is one of Peugeot's most popular models and this one sports newly-improved fuel-cell and battery components instead of the usual ICE under the hood.

The new fuel cell is 20% more efficient and has 400x the life span of the previous 20kW fuel cell iteration. The lithium-ion batteries have a better output as well.

The 307cc FiSyPAC has a 62mpg equivalency and range. The powertrain is designed as an extended range electric with the range extender being the fuel cells. Total range is about 310 miles.

And so ...

Most of the details are being kept up Peugeot's sleeve, but this shows that it's more than just the Japanese companies who're looking ahead towards H2 as a power source.
