Ford fuel cell bid

It will attempt to break the land speed record for production-based fuel cell vehicles later this month

Ford is to attempt the land speed record for production-based fuel cell vehicles at Bonneville this month.

The Ford Fusion Hydrogen 999 land speed record vehicle was designed by Ford engineers and fabricated and built by Roush in Allen Park, Michigan.

Ohio State students are providing the design of the 770 hp electric motor, while Ballard is supplying the hydrogen fuel cells.

In 2004, Ohio State students set the unlimited land speed record for an electric vehicle by reaching 315 mph in the first Buckeye Bullet, the BB1.
