For this, the location of the transmission and power units was extremely optimized. For example, the energy block of the hydrogen engine and the dimensions of the fuel cells were so “compressed” by using the latest technologies that they are now quite comparable in size with the V6 engine.
For a long time, engineers worked on the design of a special fuel tank. In this tank, the gas-hydrogen mixture is under cosmic pressure. One hydrogen refueling is enough for a new car to overcome seven hundred and fifty kilometers of asphalt Japanese roads. Such a fuel tank is filled with hydrogen as quickly as a gasoline one, in just two or three minutes. The car is equipped with a power source that can be used to illuminate and heat a residential household in case centralized electricity is unavailable. The entire first year of using this car, the developers will carefully accompany it, studying all the nuances that may not have taken into account, because such a car has not yet been. And the time of its use can bring some surprises.
