Turbine trucks? 50 years ago, we got behind the wheel

<p>From our Nov. 1964 issue is this photo of General Motors' Bison heavy truck concept. No, that's not a sleeper space behind the cab, it's a pod designed to house two turbine engines producing a total of 1,000 hp.! </p>

Hyundai rolls into US truck market with NEPTUNE fuel cell concept

Quote:
“Again, this truck is designed to earn money and not for marketing purpose,” he continued, and he explained the reason customers want the fuel cell truck rather than a battery-electric vehicle. “First is the refueling time which is obviously much faster for fuel cell vehicles compared to battery—so 15 minutes is an acceptable time for that. But what’s probably even more important is the higher drive range, the higher payload and lower cost.”

I always wanted to make my VW van look like a locomotive. The guy who bought it had this picture up on his shop wall.

It is hard to compare two different designs.

The XL1 and the EV1 are 2 of the only production cars that have a tapered plan, with narrower rear track.

I like the early sketches but see the final form probably works better.

The Rasa is a two seater ‘network electric’ car, powered by a hydrogen fuel cell. The chassis is a carbon fibre monocoque made from very lightweight but extremely stiff carbon fibre composites. The monocoque chassis weighs less than 40kg.

I love the Riversimple chassis - but the hydrogen fuel cell drivetrain is a no go.

Boxed cavity on a Porsche. Is it a 356C or a 911?
