Mini-strip idea, hydrogen from coal, tax allowances for electrical automobiles: right now’s automotive information
When it comes to end-use, hydrogen from coal is dirtier than burning coal. The Senate is voting in favor of expanding the electric vehicle tax credit, although that may not mean much yet. And Mini shows how slimmed down it can be with an EV. This and more here at Green Car Reports.
“Blue” hydrogen production plants that use coal or fossil fuels, as proposed in the bipartisan Infrastructure Act, could potentially cause higher emissions than if the fuels were used for combustion. Is that another piece of political “pork” or does it help lay the foundation for “green” hydrogen from renewable energies?
Earlier this week, the Senate voted to set price and household income caps on the federal electric vehicle tax credit. While the measure is non-binding, it could have an impact on the expanded electric car tax credit that is working its way through Capitol Hill.
And Mini introduced what sounds like the antithesis of a futuristic concept car: the Strip, a one-of-a-kind concept that shows how small electric city cars could be much simpler.
