China has developed a car on hydrogen fuel with a power reserve of 1,000 kilometers

Founded in 2016 the Chinese company Wuhan Grove Hydrogen Automobile Co. He showed his first offspring - hydrogen car prototype called Grove.
This is a five-door wagon with a long hood and cab rearward displacement. The front part of the Grove reminds Maserati cars, but the proportions of the new "Chinese" unbalanced and rather disharmonious. The front door opens on the type of "butterfly wings".
All exterior body panels are made from carbon fiber. The movement of the car leads to the installation of a hydrogen fuel cell. They hydrogen by electrochemical reaction is converted into electricity supply traction motors. By the way, the car was named after the British physicist, inventor of the fuel cell technology, William Robert Grove (1811-1896 biennium).
Grove feature - a large cruising range on one filling of cylinders - 1000 km. The volume of containers, however, is not specified, but stresses that their full refueling will require only a few minutes. Like any hydrogen car, Grove environmentally friendly, rather than exhaust it from the pipe coming out steam. Official presentation of the car will take place in April at the International Motor Show in Shanghai. Most interesting is that in 2020, Grove has to be reborn in the serial product.
It should be noted that in the world today produce only a few hydrogen cars - a Toyota Mirai, Honda Clarity and Hyundai Nexo. Cruising at one of the first refueling is 502 km, the second one - 750 km, a third - 595 km.Wuhan Grove Hydrogen Automobile Co. It is a subsidiary of Wuhan Institute of Geological Resources and Environmental Technology Industry (IGE). The company created specifically for the production of hydrogen-powered cars.
