Zinc Fuel Cell Powers Taiwan Made Electric Car

Known as the "Salamander," this car operates on zinc oxygen energy fuel cells. Also known as ZOE, the fuel cell generates electricity through the metal's oxidation process. It can be recycled by using sun power to return the oxidized zinc back to the original metal form. 288 of these little cells provide enough power for the lightweight vehicle to reach speeds well over 200 miles per hour. Of course, 80 miles per hour is the design speed and combined with brisk acceleration makes it nimble enough to function well in modern traffic. Local Taipei news video of the car in action here.
