An Australian company has unveiled the world’s first hydrogen-powered bike, with the aim of reaching a world free of carbon dioxide emissions, and the bike was made using a lightweight material, which enables it to travel long enough distances.

The “Lavo” bike is equipped with small hydrogen tanks that operate the bike with 100% clean energy, and requires only about 10 minutes to charge, and it suffices for a distance of about 150 kilometers, according to the “Russia Today” news network.

The bike’s energy storage system converts electricity from the solar panels using an electrolyzer that splits the water into components hydrogen and oxygen, and transfers it to a long-term storage system.

The 660-pound (300 kg) single-seat plane is also powered by six sets of propellers and an internal combustion engine that seemed stable enough during its short flight, although we’d like to see a few more maneuvers and a little more velocity happen in action. illustration, CEO ALI Technologies Daisuke Katano spoke ambitiously about the company’s vision for the machine, saying, “We would like to suggest a new lifestyle with this floating car.”
