An industrial design student in The Netherlands has built a prototype scooter that is designed to be run on hydrogen. Crijn Bouman of Delft University of Technology designed the scooter for use in inner cities. He calls it the Fhybrid.

“The look and feel of the scooter are aimed at selling the clean technology inside,” he said in a statement today.

The scooter has an electric motor powered by a (Li-)ion battery. If the Fhybrid is ever put into production, the idea is to charge the battery with a fuel-cell system, which would derive its energy from a tank of hydrogen. The Fhybrid has a top speed of 40 mph. Bouman says it accelerates faster than regular scooters and could travel approximately 124 miles on  a tank of hydrogen.
