Not much of a concept than technology, but this was unveiled at the California Auto Show:<p><A HREF="http://www.autodeadline.com/Photos?Pop=Hummer&Model=Concept&page=1" TARGET="_blank">http://www.autodeadline.com/Ph...age=1</A><p>Interesting...

Pointless. They need a hybrid, either gas electric, or diesel electric, not hydrogen. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/all_coholic.gif" BORDER="0">

Diesel and gas on the other hand is available rather readily around the world, and can be filled up almost anywhere.<p>If Hummer seriously wants people to save some gas, a diesel-electric hybrid, or gas-electric hybrid would be a wiser choice. Plus it would come with a premium compared to the normal gas car, and if it sold would generate more profit for GM.<p>Even BMW who promoted hydrogen technology are slowly seeing the point of hybrids, I still don't care much for them, would rather have a diesel.<p>Unless the hummer is a fuel cell car, running on hydrogen, then it is somewhat of a good idea, but if there is no fuel cell, see the note above.

I know the owners of that horrid monstrosity will be telling themselves, "So, just wait til they see THIS in the office parking lot, they wont think Im a pansy now!"

ok to some adults this will probably sound stupid but what im gonna say has to do with the science of hydrogen and what i know about it. even though its kinda weird and stupid, since hydrogen is in water cant u like fill up the car with water, have it go through a built in centrifuge and separate the hydrogen from the oxygen and have the hydrogen pass through into the fuel tank and have it power the car. this would be so you can fill it up with water, which the earth has an abundance of also, instead of finding the scarcity of a hydrogen station.

I really have no idea why yoy mentioned a centrifuge, since that wouldn't do sh** to the water, except push it to the edge of the centrifuge.<p>next, there is a difference in running a car on hydrogen and a fuel cell vehicle. A fuel cell needs H2 atoms to let go of their electrons so they can pass through the fuel cell and then to the other side where they recombine (electrons and Hydrogen) and then combine with oxygen to get water.<p>pretty funny huh.

ok so not a centrifuge, but something that would separate the hydrogen from the oxygen in water. told ya it was a stupid idea but i said it anyway.

Well, it certainly looks better than the typical H2, but thats not saying much. Still a rather stupid vehicle overall.
