first hydrogen designs next generation zero emission vehicle

First Hydrogen Corp. reveals new images outlining the vision for its Generation II concept vehicle, which will be available with either fuel cell electric or battery electric drive trains. The latest sketches show the design process that the Company is undertaking with global mobility experts EDAG Group.

The images show the vehicle's overall form in greater detail and indicate some of the van's technical assets. As well as the vertical taillights and branded daytime running lights, which were revealed earlier this year, the new illustrations exhibit an aerodynamic fuselage. They also show muscular and dynamic fenders and a large front grill, which is both functional and stylish. Incorporating First Hydrogen branding, the grill provides the necessary ventilation for the vehicle's front located fuel cell.

The Generation II concepts are being developed while First Hydrogen trials its Generation I fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEV). Launched last year, the Generation I vehicles are currently undergoing mileage accumulation and evaluation before entering trials with major fleet operators in the UK. The road trials for Generation I are managed in conjunction with the UK Aggregated Hydrogen Freight Consortium (AHFC). Members cover a variety of sectors including grocery, roadside assistance, utilities, construction and express delivery and trial participants will use First Hydrogen's demonstrator vehicles alongside their existing fleets to evaluate the benefits of different vehicle technologies. Data and feedback gained during these trials will influence the design and engineering of the Company's future vehicles to ensure designs meet customer needs.

The global light commercial vehicle market is projected to reach USD 751.86 billion by 2030, increasing at a compound annual growth rate of 5.1% during the forecast period (2022-2030). Further growth is expected as industries strive to meet zero emission targets and governments incentivise switching to zero emission mobility and invest in better infrastructure. First Hydrogen is targeting the commercial van market and light commercial vehicle sector to support fleet operators to move away from fossil fuels and invest in zero emission transport.

Steve Gill, CEO of Automotive for First Hydrogen, says: "We are delighted to present a first look at the new concept vehicle and are proud of its clean, functional, and modern design. The aerodynamic design and overall proportions have been shaped to consider operations on highways and in urban environments. We have taken a particular focus on the lighting, ensuring high visibility for drivers and other road users, – this is especially important for use by delivery, utilities, and roadside assistance companies – but also make the vehicles instantly recognisable as First Hydrogen."

Bernat Costa, Design Director at EDAG Spain, comments: "We have taken great care to reflect the modern and clean energy values First Hydrogen represents in the vehicle design. The pure and minimalist design meets functional needs and accommodates the technical requirements of hydrogen propulsion. We have also created a design suited to modular builds, providing operational flexibility through a range of sizes and potential bespoke elements."

First Hydrogen Corp. is a Vancouver and London UK-based company focused on zero-emission vehicles, green hydrogen production and distribution and supercritical carbon dioxide extractor systems. The Company is designing and building hydrogen-fuel-cell-powered light commercial demonstrator vehicles ("LCV") under two agreements with AVL Powertrain and Ballard Power Systems Inc. The LCV will have a range of 500+ kilometres. At the same time, the Company has launched its bespoke vehicle design phase which will develop its fleet of proprietary zero-emission vehicles. First Hydrogen is also developing refueling capability working with FEV Consulting GmbH, the automotive consultancy of FEV Group of Aachen Germany. As well, the Company is pursuing opportunities in green hydrogen production and distribution in the UK, EU and North America.

What is the Flying car?

what is the flying car

What is a flying car? This question has intrigued science fiction fans and technophiles alike for decades- but now it's a reality. Undoubtedly, flying cars are the future of personal transportation, combining the convenience of cars with the freedom of flight. A flying car is an aerial vehicle that is designed to take off and land vertically- it can be a form of personal transportation. It is a vehicle that is propelled through the air by either a turbine engine or electric motors, with the ability to take off and land vertically, like a helicopter.

The concept of the flying car is actually nothing new. The idea has been around for quite some time. In the early 1900s, a French pilot named Clément Ader created the world’s first flying car, the Avion III. Although this vehicle was not successful in achieving sustained flight, it showed that the concept was possible. In the following decades, different types of flying cars were developed and tested, but none of them was successful in achieving sustained flight. One of the biggest challenges with the development of flying cars is the fact that they require a lot of energy to keep them in the air. This is why most modern flying cars are powered by electric motors or jet engines.

Another first known attempt to build a flying car took place in the early 1900s. It was called the Waldo Special and was created by a Canadian inventor named Waldo Waterman. Unfortunately, the project was never completed due to a lack of funding.

Excitingly, with the 21st-century advances in technology and engineering, the dream of having a flying car is finally becoming a reality. Despite the technological challenges, the concept of a flying car is alive and well.

In recent years, several companies have begun developing and testing flying cars, with some of these companies even achieving their goal of sustained flight. Modern flying cars come in many shapes and sizes. Some are designed to look like traditional cars, while others have a more futuristic design. They are powered by either a hybrid engine or an electric motor, and some have vertical take-off capabilities. The flying car is still in its infancy; it's not yet available to the public. However, companies such as Aeromobil, Terrafugia, and PAL-V are currently developing prototypes. The prototypes are being tested and further developed to ensure they are safe and reliable.

Most likely, flying cars will be available to the public in the near future. Such cars will-likely- revolutionize the way we travel and make commuting much more efficient. Imagine being able to fly to your destination in a matter of minutes! This could significantly reduce traffic congestion and pollution. Yes, the flying car is an exciting development that is sure to make a big impact on the way we travel. It is a great example of how technology can make our lives easier.

Although flying cars are still in their early stages of development, they have the potential to revolutionize the way we travel. The first flying car was developed by the Moller International company in 2018; it is currently undergoing testing. The car is powered by four electric motors and is capable of taking off and landing vertically. It has a maximum speed of 80 mph and can reach altitudes of up to 10,000 feet. The vehicle is also equipped with an autopilot system that can be used to safely navigate the skies.

The flying car is just one example of the incredible advancements in the world of personal transportation. Many companies, such as Uber and Lyft, are exploring the potential of using flying cars to expand their services. This could revolutionize travel, allowing people to get where they want- quickly and safely, all while enjoying the freedom of flight. The future of flying cars looks very bright, and many are hopeful that they will soon become a viable form of personal transportation. Indeed, flying cars could revolutionize the way we travel, giving us the freedom to explore the skies in a whole new way. For now, however, the technology is still in its early stages, and only time will tell what the future holds for this exciting invention.

So, have you ever dreamed of flying cars? If so, you are not alone. The idea of flying cars has been around for almost a century and has been the subject of numerous sci-fi stories, movies, and TV shows. The idea of a flying car has also been discussed in the news, as well as in research and development circles. There are different types of flying cars, ranging from those that are powered by conventional aircraft engines, to those powered by electric motors, to those powered by jet engines. In addition, some flying cars are designed to be operated remotely, while others are designed to be operated by a pilot inside the vehicle.

Will flying cars become a mainstream form of transportation or remain a niche form of transportation? It remains to be seen. But one thing is for sure - flying cars will certainly be a fascinating and revolutionary form of transportation.

JetRacer (in the photo) is the latest invention of Franky Zapata and his team. Mixing the design of a drone with a racing car, this flying vertical take-off and landing machine is the fastest one created by the company.
