Volkswagen Passat: The future of automotive transportation
People who watched Beijing Olympics might have noticed that Volkswagen Passats was used for cycling and running competitions in some of the pace cars. Aside from placement of the product, these Passats came up with a hydrogen cell power fuel for the train built by Volkswagen at China research lab. The car was named as the Volkswagen Passat Ling Yu.
A large number of these cars were brought by a unique organization known as CFCP or California Fuel Cell Partnership. This organization is working with a large number of automakers that include Nissan, Honda, Volkswagen, Toyota and Hyundai. CFCP has also been promoting research work in the field of hydrogen generation as well as filling stations.
The car has been developed on Passat production platform and that’s why you can’t call it a future vehicle and you will find it in ergonomics and other controls quite similar to the other available vehicles.
It has an electric motor that doesn’t seem to make lots of sound and it seems to produce a steady sound instead. When it comes to its power engine, you will find them quite similar to what you have seen in some cars with gas engine. There is a lithium ion battery in the middle of it and it supplies juice for regenerating brakes as well as supplements the motor flow.
