Shanghai Pearl Hydrogen Power Source Technology Co unveiled its environmentally clean hydrogen fuel cell bike at an international fair in Shanghai recently.

The bike is comprised of a battery tank and a pair of hydrogen gas bottles making it look different than other electric bikes.

“As is widely known, hydrogen has become a major source of clean energy, together with wind and solar power. With hydrogen gas, the battery produces power to drive the bike without producing harmful fumes but only a bit of water,” Tian explained.

It only takes 30 minutes to refill the gas bottles where is can take over 3 hours to recharge an electric battery and a battery can weight twice as much as the hydrogen system.

“We could also make the battery system lighter by using different materials to make the tank.”

The new bike can complete a trip of about 100 kilometers at about 25 km/h and costs about $2,632 dollars, although it is expected to drop to about $550 after they enter mass production.

Course you will have to find a refueling station to provide hydrogen for the bike.
