Meanwhile in Brazil: Nissan debuts 600 km range solid-oxide fuel-cell car

“An e-Bio fuel-cell prototype vehicle is claimed by Nissan to run on Nissan debuts 600 km range solid-oxide fuel-cell car100-percent ethanol or ethanol-blended water to charge a 24-kWh battery, achieving a cruising range of more than 600 km.
The zero-emission vehicle is powered by a solid oxide fuel-cell (SOFC) that first reforms the ethanol into hydrogen and CO2, of which the hydrogen is used to generate electrical power. The small amount of CO2 generated is offset by the process of growing the sugar cane, which is familiar in Brazil where bio-ethanol is common as a main motor fuel.”
