The Edge hydrogen SUV



Offering up the world’s first drivable fuel cell hybrid electric vehicle with plug-in capability, the Ford Edge has a flexible propulsion system, meaning it’s possible to pull out the fuel cell and replace it with a conventional petrol, or diesel, or ethanol, or other engine as appropriate.  Charging on conventional mains power and sporting a raft of comfort features from full computerized climate control to a nice place to put your iPod, satellite radio and audio controls in the steering wheel, The Edge drives in battery-only mode for the first 40 km and then switches over to hybrid mode, meaning if you use it strictly as a commuter machine you could well stay purely electric.  As with many of these it’s still in concept stage, but if they make enough concepts maybe they’ll be able to have a big sale just to sell all the samples.  $33,000 USD to $38,000 USD.  [GT]
