London to Buy 10 Red Hydrogen Powered Buses

London (TGW) – London has signed a $20 million contract to buy 10 hydrogen powered red buses.

"London is now the first city in Europe to commit to a hydrogen bus fleet of this size, which will match traditional diesel buses in terms of performance," London Mayor Ken Livingstone said.

"This represents a huge step forward from the previous hydrogen trials in the capital and is an important step towards my target of having five per cent of all public sector fleet vehicles powered by hydrogen by 2015," he added.

Mike Weston, Operations Director for London Buses, said the hydrogen buses were worth the extra cost.

why only 10? Are they 100% hydrogen fueled, do they produce their own fuel on the go?
Considering the pollution/global warming crisis its a very,very small step for such a huge city.
The technology either works or it doesnt.
