Suzuki Crosscage actually moving into production

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

While many people believed it would stay in concept phase forever, the Suzuki Crosscage just got green lit for actual production (now the question is volume of production.) From Tuvie.com

 


 

Suzuki has announced its hydrogen motorcycle concept at Tokyo Motor Show last November, and the good news is they are ready to put this unconventional motorcycle into production. The crosscage concept motorcycle is a fuel-cell motorcycle in which a simple, compact, lightweight air-cooled fuel-cell system and a high-performance secondary battery are brought together in a way that realizes optimal power control. A fuel-cell unit from British specialist company Intelligent Energy delivers quick activation with low fuel consumption, and a lithium-ion battery combines safety with a low environmental burden. The simplicity, compactness, and lightness of these technologies not only make the crosscage environment-friendly; they also helped enable sporty styling befitting the Suzuki name.

This motorcycle was developed in conjunction with British Intelligent Energy, which make this a great collaboration since British Intelligent has its own hydrogen generation plants. Energy has a portfolio that includes a range of world-class fuel cell, fuel processing, desulphurization and hydrogen generation technologies. The company’s existing home hydrogen generation system means you’ll be able to make your own hydrogen at home. So I guess this news means you will find this motorcycle in the nearest showroom somewhere near the future.

Hmm that's interesting.  I'm not really into hydrogen vehicles because we don't have a good environmentally friendly source of hydrogen fuel, but it's good to see more alternative fuel technologies developed nonetheless.
