Autos: Fuel For Thought

Motown may stiill be making thousands of gas-guzzling SUVs, but U.S. automakers are doing more than dabbling in hybrid vehicles. Ford Motor, for one, has been developing its Hyseries, a fuel-cell car.

Ford's manager of fuel-cell engineering, Mujeeb Ijaz, gave Morning Call's Liz Claman a look under the hood.

The Hyseries is a noiseless, gaslsess vehicle, capable of traveling up to 85 mph.

Ford engineers have already reduced the size of the fuel-cell power unit by 50% as part of the company's efforst to appeal to consumers, but Ijaz estimates that Ford will need a "ten-year window to further develop a commercial strategy."

So don't double park in the meantime.
