From Eden to Brum, Ford's £300m fuel cell car

FORD has been showing off its vision of a cleaner future at two very different venues – the Eden Project in Cornwall, and the British International Motor Show in Birmingham.

The hydrogen-powered hybrid fuel cell Focus FCV took to the roads around the two biospheres that make up the Eden Project. This week, the car was safely out of the wind and rain on the Ford stand at the British Motor Show. Following Ford's decision to stop its electric battery powered Th!nk programme recently, the firm is throwing all its weight behind hydrogen power.

Ford has so far spent £300 million on research and development of the technology and plans to have a hydrogen powered car in mass production by 2010.
