HyMotion – the one with the amazing cell.
Volkswagen presented the Golf Estate HyMotion – a progressive research vehicle with a fuel-cell drive – for the first time at the Los Angeles Auto Show. As the power source of the future, this cell combines hydrogen and oxygen to form pure water. This “cold” combustion process releases energy – which powers an electric motor with zero emissions. The Golf Estate HyMotion with front-wheel drive accelerates from 0 to 62 mph in 10 seconds. The hydrogen is securely stored in four high-tech carbon-fibre tanks located in the underbody to save interior space. They enable a range of 300 miles, and this research vehicle can be refuelled in three minutes flat.
