Hydrogen-powered scooter

This prototype electric scooter is powered by a hydrogen fuel cell. Electricity is produced in the fuel cell attached to the back of the scooter. This charges a battery which powers the scooter. With a full-sized hydrogen tank the scooter has a range of 125 miles and can reach a top speed of 30 mph. Hydrogen-powered vehicles offer a non-polluting future for transport as they don’t emit greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide.
