That's a hydrogen fuel cell bus? I didn't realize those engines were in production yet. They put out water vapor for exhaust, right? I thought for sure we would be using some kind of bio-diesel for a few years before they got the fuel cells to be practical. This is great news!

Correct on all counts. Us Brick Laners (well, the observant ones) see them on Whitechapel High Street regularly.

They put out an impressive plume of water vapour on acceleration and are very much quieter than their diesel counterparts.

Marvellous.
