A Ford Explorer has been totally powered by internal combustion engine (ICE).fueled by hydrogen (H2) gas. H2 gas was generated on-board by a patented H2 generation technology - a safe, ambient temperature chemical reaction with a water based solution. The novel feature of this system is that H2 gas is safely generated on-board the vehicle as needed without resorting to bulky, pressurized cylinders. The entire H 2 generation system easily fits within the engine compartment and beneath the floor of the vehicle making this one of the few practical zero emission vehicles that has room for 5 passengers and cargo while offering competitive performance and driving range to current SUVs.
