ENV hydrogen bike about 1 year from commercialization

Posted by ben @ 9:38 PM | Permanent Link


Intelligent Energy is finalizing development of it's ENV Bike ("envy"), a motorcycle built around IE's state-of-the-art fuel cell, "The Core." According to specs (1.7 MB pdf), the bike can go up to 80 km/h (50 mph), and a single tank lasts 100 miles and takes, can run continuously for four hours before the fuel cell needs re-fueling less than 5 minutes to refuel. "The Core," the fuel cell powering the bike, is fully removable and can function at temperatures up to -40°C. In the future, Intelligent Energy is considering creating a suite of remote-power products running from the core. An article from The Toronto Star (not available online) suggests it may be available as early as next year, and for as little as $16,000 CAN.

The BBC is also reporting that the motor bike is so quiet that it might be fitted with an artificial "vroom" because of worries its silence might be dangerous. The fake engine noise device would help alert road users. Cross posted to theWatt, and here.
