Morgan LIFECar

Morgan has announced that it will reveal its fuel cell powered LIFECar concept at the 2008 Geneva Motor Show. Producing only water vapor due to its fuel cell converting hydrogen into electricity, the LIFECar concept is capable 200 mile zero emissions range.

LIFECar’s fuel cell system operates by electrochemically combining on-board hydrogen with oxygen taken from the air outside. The electric power generated by the fuel cells powers the electric motors and turns the wheels of the vehicle.

The two and half year project, which includes Morgan itself along with QinetiQ, Cranfield and Oxford universities, BOC and OSCar, was mostly funded by the Department for Trade Industry.
