Audi has developed a new hydrogen-powered car that will be introduced in 2016. The Audi FCV (fuel cell vehicle) has been eluded to and not yet introduced. Audi had said that the vehicle will be much like the A7 Sportback h-tron in style and performance. The newest features are the quiet running of the engine and the range extended far beyond anything currently in production.

Though Audi has been tight lipped about the vehicle, we know that it has similar characteristics to the h-tron. Some of the aspects we see in the h-tron are adapted front and rear mounted motors and an inserted 300-cell power unit into the system. The vehicle is building upon the concepts of the Q5 and A2, hydrogen-powered concepts.

The hydrogen motor works by mixing oxygen brought into the engines negative terminal with the hydrogen that has been positively charged. The hydrogen atoms are fed into the positive terminal, which is made of platinum, designed to speed up the chemistry of the cell. Because the hydrogen atoms are stripped of their electrons, they become ions.
