Forget Biodiesel, car companies are now trying to prove their long term commitment to environmentalism with some astonishing new concepts like VW’s Hydrogen-Hybrid Tiguan. Even though I am no advocate of SUVs, smaller car-like SUVs allow manufactures to be braver with technology in that the ute platform allows for the added weight of batteries and fuel cells. And of course, Americans love SUVs like cheeseburgers and milkshakes.
Take a look at the Tiguan HyMotion concept over at Autoblog. Even though its far far away from being a production model, working towards a vehicle that only gives off water vapor is pretty cool.
