On-Board Hydrogen Gas: The Ronn Scorpion HX

November 4, 2008

SEMA is in full-swing today, and alternative fuel applications are all the rage.  Yesterday, I wrote about air cars, and today I'm blow away by the Ronn Motor Company's Scorpion.

The primary innovation that the Scorpion features is on-board creation of hydrogen gas from water using an electrolysis process.  The hydrogen gas is then combined with a more traditional combustion fuel to power the V6, and the result is 600 horsepower and more than 40 projected miles per gallon.  I'm sold, but I'm also somewhat short of the $250,000 asking price for the Scorpion HX.
