BMW Hydrogen-Powered 5-Series Out and About
BMW’s Innovation Days 2015 had a great turnout this year, with a BMW hydrogen-powered 5-Series being showcased as part of the festivities. The hydrogen fuel cell car, based in a 5-Series Gran Turismo, was co-developed alongside Toyota.
The prototype is assured to deliver zero-emissions and doesn’t require the lengthy recharging time that plug-in electric vehicles do. The fuel cell vehicle is powered by a new electric motor derived from the i-sub brand and generates an impressive 245 horsepower. Those numbers are comparable to BMW’s 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder gas engines.
BMW and Toyota partnered first in 2013, and initially set their goal to deliver a group of vehicles like this one by 2020. Judging by the success seen so far, they’re right on track.
