After viewing the YouTube story from Autoblog, ( very good detail )
at: a look into the design of the Ford
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rACx-YJXEgg

....There should be NO mistaking why we call these things FOOL CELLS

Notice that there is only room in the car for a driver...

I think it would be relatively simple to build a 200 mph car with
room for 2, +
using LiIon Technology, and AC OR DC drive....
at WHAT......1/4th the cost ???

The fuel cell powered Fusion 999 ran at 207 mph on the Bonneville Salt Flats
on July 16, 2007.
This car obviously was not designed as a practical vehicle, but as a
demonstration of how fast
a fuel cell powered car could go at Bonneville. All the available space in
and under the car is filled
with fuel cells, tanks and various equipment.

We shouldn't sneer and make snide remarks about Fool Cells. Whether we agree
or not, fuel
cells will probably be used in future vehicles.

6700 lbs, 7miles range and 1 passenger. The most interesting is the
comment about having presurized 60%helium+40%O2 so the did away with the
compressor and filter. They off loaded that too. The important part is
the electric drivetrains are being proven. This was "levereged" off the
buckey
