Let’s play a game of Name That Movie:
Character 1: “Wait a minute. Wait a minute Doc, uh, are you telling me you built a time machine…out of a DeLorean?”
Character 2: “The way I see it, if you’re going to build a time machine into a car, why not do it with some style?”
Movie enthusiasts are probably able to quickly recall this dialogue between iconic Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) and Doc Brown (Christopher Lloyd) from 1985’s Back To The Future in which a typical American teenager is accidentally sent back to 1955 in a plutonium-powered DeLorean time machine invented by a slightly mad scientist. This film is full of humorous whit and fanciful imagination, but the musings of Hollywood’s storytellers can now be seen in the real-life concepts of today’s automotive visionaries.
As the world shifts to meet global mandates for a zero-emission future, hydrogen fuel-cell technology continues to make a name for itself, and automakers are swiftly unveiling vehicle concepts that ignite the same excitement and ingenuity that were once reserved for movie sets. These hydrogen fuel-cell vehicles run the gamut. Here’s just a few of the most ingenious ideas making their way onto the future automotive stage.
This Back To The Future DeLorean concept has gull-wing doors, a flux capacitor and a Mr. Fusion Home Energy Reactor mounted on the trunk.
“A piece of the future is now a reality,” said actor Christopher Lloyd. “Compared to some other technologies predicted in the film, like rehydrated pizza or self-tying shoes, this technology has the real potential to change the world.”
Not a movie buff? No problem! The future will hold many more hydrogen fuel-cell concepts to meet a variety of tastes. Even soccer moms will be able to tow the masses to games and activities while driving an environmentally friendly ride. Check out the minivan that will leave every mom in the carpool pickup line talking.
This concept minivan is described as a “premium saloon” with adjustable seating, group space and a virtual “Agent” that turns the driver’s and passenger’s windows into screens.
The working man has not been forgotten. From farmers to soldiers to pilots, hydrogen fuel-cell technology is changing the future for every walk of life.
This hydrogen fuel-cell powered tractor is a new approach in which farmers will be able to generate their own energy to run their farm and agricultural equipment using hydrogen, 100% generated from renewable resources, of which farmers have plenty!
Even the Army needs to think about going green.
The Silent Utility Rover Universal Superstructure (SURUS) is essentially a platform with wheels that can be equipped for a variety of tasks. It could easily be outfitted for autonomous driving and used by the military as cargo haulers or to provide emergency backup power during disasters.
From our ground forces to the air, a team at Boeing Research and Technology Europe has now successfully demonstrated that man can fly an airplane powered by hydrogen fuel-cell technology. The 20-minute flight was a tangible example of Boeing’s attempt to develop new technologies for environmentally progressive aerospace products.
“I have a great deal of pride in the creative Boeing Research & Technology Europe team,” said John Tracy, Boeing Senior Vice-President of Engineering, Operations & Technology and Chief Technology Officer. “They have demonstrated the potential of integrating fuel-cell technology into aerospace products and the promise of a brighter, greener future.”
Haven’t seen a ride that fits your fancy yet? The trendsetters may enjoy a night out on the town in this futuristic concept that’s powered by four in-wheel electric motors and a fuel-cell stack that sits between the front wheels.
This ride offers more interior room sans a conventional dashboard and touting a display that projects all of the vehicle’s vital information onto the windshield.
As we’ve envisioned what the automotive future of hydrogen fuel-cell technology may one day look like, one can’t help but wish the future were at our fingertips today. Lucky for you, it is!
