Ford Motor Company combines hybrid electric vehicle technology with an advanced fuel cell to create a highly efficient, zero-emissions Ford Focus FCV sedan. The four-passenger Ford Focus FCV uses a Ballard fuel cell that converts chemical energy into electrical energy using hydrogen and oxygen. The electrical energy then powers the vehicle's electric-drive motor, producing only water and heat as byproducts Together, the new battery pack, regenerative braking, and storage tank help increase the driving range of the Focus FCV to between 184 and 200 miles. The hybrid electric power system also gives the vehicle the "off-the-light" zippiness of a more conventional sedan and a top speed governed at 80 miles per hour. More than a high-tech concept, these Ford FCV sedans are already being used in fleets in the United States and Canada.

hey that is pretty neat. They should use that grille on the 2005 focus coming out in fall. Do you think those will be available to buy within the next few years?
