General Motors has released video of Hy-wire, the first drivable vehicle that combines a hydrogen fuel cell with by-wire technology.
Not a car you will ever be able to buy, but definitely a sign of the future. Probably the most advanced power system in the world: a completely non polluting fuel cell that takes hydrogen and produces electricity with the only by-product being a little bit of water vapour. As if that wasn't enough, all the controls are "by-wire" with no physical linkages from accelerator, brake or even steering wheel. That means the driver can press a button to change from right hand drive to left hand drive. How convenient would that be for European holidays?
