With the London Olympics a mere 4 years away, Brits are preparing for the huge influx of tourism and media attention that comes along with hosting the Olympic games. One of the things that they’re doing is setting up a fleet of hydrogen hybrid fuel cell taxis to tote the imminent hoards around their fair city.
The fancy new cabs will be able to run all day without refueling, will have a top speed of 120 kilometers per hour, and will be able to stop faster than their gas-fueled counterparts. And while the fleet is being put into place for the Olympics, they’ll obviously still be around afterwards, helping to significantly cut down the greenhouse gas output of London for years to come. Nice work, Brits.
