Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. introduced in Brazil, the world’s first prototype car for solid oxide fuel cell (Solid Oxide Fuel-Cell – SOFC), which moves at the expense of electricity generation from bioethanol. The advanced prototype of a light commercial vehicle uses a variety of fuels, including ethanol and natural gas as a source of electricity, as well as Nissan Qashqai headlight fuse.
The President and CEO of Nissan Carlos Ghosn said: “The Prototype of the e-Bio Fuel-Cell offers eco-friendly solution to the transport problem and creates opportunities for energy production in different regions, at the same time maintaining the existing infrastructure there. In the future e-Bio Fuel-Cell becomes even more convenient to use. It is easier to work with a water-alcohol mixture than with the most of other types of fuel, and due to the fact that fuel is required to create a new infrastructure, it has enormous potential to contribute to the growth of the market”.
