GM, Honda to team up on fuel cell vehicles

Car makers GM and Honda are collaborating to develop new alternative fuel vehicles based on hydrogen storage and fuel cell technologies. GM and Honda already have more than 1,200 fuel cell patents between them, and both companies have experimental vehicle fleets. Other vehicle makers like Ford, Daimler and Renault-Nissan have announced similar plans.

The two companies are planning to develop new hydrogen storage and fuel cell technologies by 2020. They will also push for more hydrogen fuelling stations.

Fuel cell vehicles have electric motors that are powered by a chemical reaction between hydrogen and oxygen. The only byproducts are water vapour and heat, so there's no pollution. But the lack of infrastructure to transport and store liquid hydrogen has been a barrier to the cars' development.
