BMW will be the world’s first auto manufacturer to market a hydrogen-drive car which has successfully completed the process of series development.

The BMW Series Hydrogen 7 Saloon will be powered by a 260 h.p. 12-cylinder. Top speed is limited electronically to 143 mph. When a full supply of hydrogen is not guaranteed, the dual-mode power unit featured in BMW Hydrogen 7 will switch over to conventional premium gasoline.

The launch of BMW Hydrogen 7 is a milestone en route to an era of mobility independent of fossil fuels not only for the BMW Group but also for the entire automotive and energy industry.
