Hydrogen Bike Better Than Electric?
Another great bike has recently made its appearance this year. In Shanghai at the 9th China International Exhibition on Gas Technology, Equipment and Applications the hydrogen prototype bike was introduced.
Shanghai Pearl Hydrogen Power Source Technology Co. is the innovative company behind this new bike. In the future they hope to expand their technology to other forms of transportation such as golf carts and motorbikes.
The hydrogen fueled bike can go about 60 miles at about 15.5 m/h. Not to bad for a bike. Don't you think?
The bikes' components are also lighter than those used in electric bikes. What other advantage does this hydrogen-fueled bike have over an electric one? The hydrogen-fueled bike has a battery tank and a pair of hydrogen gas bottles that take only 30 minutes to refill, whereas an electric bike can take up to 3 hours to recharge. Owners just need to order the gas refills from local suppliers
The cost? This innovative, but not so pretty puke-green bike is at a price of $2,632, but mass production should help the price go down.
