Tesla Roadster vs BMW
Known as the Hydrogen 7, the car will be built in a limited edition in Europe and will eventually be sold in the U.S. market, the company said in a statement. No date has been set for U.S. sales.
The car is equipped with an internal combustion engine capable of running on either hydrogen or gasoline and is based on BMW's 7 Series. If run on gasoline, the car's gas milage will be 15 miles per gallon in the city and 22 mpg on the highway.
Hydrogen technology minimizes emissions of carbon dioxide. Running in the hydrogen mode, the Hydrogen 7 essentially emits nothing but vapor, BMW said.
The car's engine is powered by a 260-horsepower, 12-cylinder engine and accelerates from zero to 62.1 mph in 9.5 seconds. The top speed is limited electronically to 143 mph.
