The BMW Hydrogen 7 is the world’s first production-ready hydrogen vehicle. It’s already proving itself in the real world too: The’re putting 100 of them to the test as loan cars for leading figures from the worlds of culture, politics, business and the media, including Oscar-winning film director Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck and Erich Sixt, chairman of rental car company Sixt AG.
Real-world experience shows that switching to hydrogen can go hand in hand with the comfort, dynamics and safety you’d expect from a BMW. A modified 5 Series GT and the BMW i8. First, lets talk about the real i8, which has both electric and petrol engines, this prototype is powered purely by hydrogen. Top Gear reports that it can do 0-62mph (0-100km/h) in about six seconds, and tops out at 124mph.
