Green Focus Can Go Even Further

The fuel cell Focus driven by Auto Express in issue 645 has been improved to cover more miles between fill-ups. Ford this week unveiled the prototype of a new model that adds a big battery stack to the original hydrogen fuel cells which emit only water vapour.

The 'mild hybrid' recovers energy lost when braking and stores it in the battery pack to be used later for powering the electric motors on the wheels. The car can now cover 200 miles before needing a fresh tank of hydrogen. John Wallace, of Ford's environmental TH!NK group, said: "We'll start building production versions of the fuel cell Focus in 2004."
