Ford Hydrogen Fuel Cell Car Sets Speed Record of 207.3 mph
WENDOVER, Utah --- Ford Motor Co. said the company set a land-speed record for a production-based hydrogen-fuel-cell-powered car when its prototype racer reached 207.3 miles per hour at Utah's Bonneville Salt Flats.
Ford's Hydrogen Fusion 999 car is the first of its kind to attempt a speed record, the L.A. Times reported. The car wasn't really competing against any other model, but the speed accomplishment is impressive nonetheless.
The zero-emission engine uses hydrogen to power an electric motor.
