A fuel cell electric vehicle (FCEV) has been unveiled at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing of Tehran’s Khajeh Nasir Toosi University of Technology.
The following is the translation of a report Mehr News Agency filed on the hybrid car:
The battery of the vehicle is charged either by electricity or by chemical reaction between oxygen and hydrogen.
It has taken experts three years to design and produce the car on a $26,000-plus budget as part of a project sponsored by the Department of Science and Technology at the Presidential Office.
The zero-emission car is expected to be commercialized and Tehran cabs are to be fitted with the technology in the future.
The main advantage of the car is that it emits water rather than fumes and thus helps ease air pollution.
