Volkswagen’s Hydrogen Fuel Cell concept vehicle, the HyMotion Tiguan, will travel from Portland, Maine to Los Angeles, Calif. over the next 13 days as part of the National Hydrogen Road Tour, sponsored by the U.S. Department of Transportation, the California Fuel Cell Partnership, the U.S. Department of Energy and the National Hydrogen Association. A dedicated Web blog, http://vwhydrogentour.com/ will provide daily updates and photos from the historic trip.
“Volkswagen is thrilled to join with our federal and state partners and other OEMs to be part of this historic event highlighting hydrogen’s potential as a future energy source,” said John Tillman program manager, U.S. Advanced Powertrain Research Program, Volkswagen Group of America. “Volkswagen has long been committed to fuel efficient vehicles and this is evident in the research and engineering behind the Tiguan HyMotion. With water as the only byproduct, this incredible vehicle has zero emissions and has a top speed of 93 miles per hour.”
