A hydrogen car which is equal to gasoline-fuelled vehicles in all areas except the cost has been given a trial run in Iceland in the past few weeks.

There is only one hydrogen fuel station in Iceland for the time being. Lack of funds prevents more such stations from being built and the matter is on hold, ruv.is reports.
The world’s largest car manufacturers have made it their goal to commence mass production of hydrogen vehicles by 2015.
Hydrogen cars are silent but the car currently being tested in Iceland plays exotic music to be noticed by pedestrians.
Meanwhile, the oil companies Orkan and Atlantsolía lowered their price of fuel by ISK 13 (USD 0.11, EUR 0.08) per liter on Thursday, visir.is reports.
However, the decrease was in connection with a car show on Bíldshöfdi in Reykjavík and as it is at odds with the world price of fossil fuels, it is unlikely to last long.
