Morgan LifeCar

January 24, 2008


The Morgan LifeCar is a concept car due to be launched at the Geneva Show in March 2008. The LifeCar’s purpose is to demonstrate that a zero emission vehicle can also be fun to drive.


Tradition plus futurism equals a car worthy for Batman and Bruce Wayne… I like.

 Fuel cell is getting a foothold in the world of wheels and notebooks… Now Suzuki Motors has created a prototype Fuel-Cell powered wheel chair called Mio thus making me believe that a revolution is coming real soon… just add water.

The MIO features a fuel cell that uses methanol as a fuel source to generate hydrogen and therefore electricity. Its tank holds 4 litres of methanol, enough to provide MIO with a range of approximately 40km / 25 miles. A large capacity Li-ion secondary battery acts as a store for the electricity generated and a back up source of power.

When will we see fuel cell cars in the streets bringing us around with our fuel cell notebooks and fuel cells er… cellphones to work? Really really soon I hope…
