HYDROCAR Solar Hydrogen Car (PH113648)



This vehicle coming straight from the year 2099 is running on clean hydrogen fuel using a next generation reversible Polymer Electrolyte Membrane (PEM) fuel cell. Its new design offers a futuristic feel for what transportation could look like in the next decades.

Watch as oxygen and hydro-gen gases are formed in two transparent containers in the back of the vehicle. The kit’s fuel cell unit combines water electrolysis and fuel cell functions into one device. The car steers independently of the user once it hits a barrier, and cool blue LED lights flash from inside the cockpit.


  • Demonstrates electrolysis of water into oxygen and hydrogen
  • Includes solar panel to power electrolysis process
  • Includes experiment guide on CD, as well complete manual
  • Easy to build and operate, steers independently when meeting obstacle
