Hyundai first to register hydrogen car fleet in Australia

The race to a hydrogen future appears to have been won by Hyundai after registering its first fleet of hydrogen cars in Australia last month. The Korean car maker and its Japanese rival Toyota are both on the brink of introducing a fleet of hydrogen vehicles. Hyundai is part of a project in the nation's capital while Toyota is co-developing a hydrogen refuelling facility in Melbourne.

Toyota Mirai hydrogen Popemobile gifted to the Vatican

A Toyota Mirai hydrogen fuel cell electric car has been converted into a Popemobile, and gifted the Vatican. Delivered on behalf of the Catholic Bishops Conference of Japan, the Toyota is 5.1 meters long and 2.7 meters tall at the highest point. However – unlike some previous iterations of the iconic vehicle – this Popemobile is not armoured. Instead, the pope sits on an exposed rear-mounted platform and is illuminated by an overhead LED system.

CSIRO puts lab-produced hydrogen through its paces

Hydrogen made in a CSIRO laboratory has been used to power a car for the first time, with chief executive Larry Marshall today taking a ride in a car powered by the lab-produced fuel. According to the organisation, the process "will pave the way for bulk hydrogen to be transported in the form of ammonia, using existing infrastructure, and then reconverted back to hydrogen at the point of use".
