BMW is about to accelerate its jump into the hydrogen game.
The automaker announced on Tuesday that it would start rolling out hydrogen-fueled vehicles within two years, not the four-year window that had been previously announced. The vehicles will have two fuel tanks, one for hydrogen and one for standard gasoline.
The 7-Series will be the first group of cars to sport the new hydrogen capability. The entire BWM line will be hydrogen-powered eventually.
This announcement comes on the heels of BMW’s decision to power its V12 engine with liquid hydrogen and the decision of other automakers to embrace water-emitting hydrogen as a vehicle fuel.
