(General area only—motor not visible) The electric motor offers a maximum
output of 80 kilowatts, enabling a top speed of about 93 miles per hour. The
manufacturer says this vehicle can also start in subfreezing temperatures (down
to about -4°F), a perennial problem in fuel cell prototypes. Being
electric, the engine and the car as a whole are quiet, with none of the
vibration or exhaust noise of a gas-powered automobile.
