This allows battery recharging from the mains electrical supply, boosting fuel efficiency, reducing running costs and lowering CO2 emissions, particularly when the electricity used comes from renewable sources.
Fuel Cell Vehicles (FCV)
These are powered by fuel cells that create electricity by combining oxygen with hydrogen. The only by-products are heat and water. Our FCHV-adv SUV has proven the technology's strengths in real-world conditions, and sales are due to start from 2015.
Electric Vehicles (EVs)
Powered by an electric motor and battery, EVs are ideal for short journeys around town. And if renewable energy is used for charging, driving is totally emissions-free. Our electric iQ concept showcases the technology in a compact package.
