The ENV, hydrogen motorcycle that was introduced back in March has generated enough interest that the company, Intelligent Energy, is moving to California and planning to have a hydrogen motorcycle for sale by 2006 for $6000. If they manage to pull it off, they’ll be the first company selling a production hydrogen vehicle of any sort. Don’t know if the performance will be any better than when it was first introduced but even if it isn’t, they do deserve credit for going ahead.
California is pushing pretty hard with their hydrogen highway plan for hydrogen filling stations so if it is going to succeed anywhere, that would be the place. Hydrogen fuel cell vehicles are some way from being practical but efforts like this will raise awareness and probably stimulate more investment in the technology, which can’t hurt.
