Meanwhile, Ford adds a larger cupholder in the F150

Posted by: Hammer / 9:01 AM

Honda is estimating that that fuel-cell cars can be mass-produced by 2018. The price will still be very high -- $80,000 according to the estimates -- and numerous technological hurdles remain.

But before the next-generation car becomes more common, Fukui said there are still some technological challenges the automaker needs to overcome.

He said the challenges include how to reduce the amount of noble metals used for fuel cells, how to improve hydrogen storage and how to make hydrogen at lower costs.

Meanwhile, Ford is focusing on adding larger cupholders in their F150s.

Actually, Ford is working on fuel cell vehicles, too. Chevy has announced a small fleet of fuel cell vehicles to be released in the fall of 2007. I hope against hope that domestic auto manufacturers will lead innovation in vehicle production, but recent history suggests that they will be playing catch-up again.
