The Ford Fusion Hydrogen 999 experimental Land Speed Record vehicle is a one off vehicle built by Ford and Roush Racing in collaboration with Ohio State University and Ballard power systems with the sole purpose of testing Fuel cell technology.
This vehicle has no internal combustion engine (ICE) and is loosely based on a production Ford Fusion.
This vehicle is a prototype or experimental vehicle and as such does not meet safety or emissions standards for any market. This vehicle is meant for testing of non-production propulsion and other equipment and as such lacks several creature comforts found in other for consumption vehicles (i.e SRS Airbag, Carpeting, Radio, etc. )
Design quirks and odditiesEdit
Design of body is fairly close to that of a production Fusion with exception of aerodynamic improvement items (Lower ground clearance, down force enhancing rear wing, sealed radiator opening) and enhanced braking equipment (ie. parachute release assisted braking).
Land Speed Record benchmark for a production-based fuel cell powered car. 207.297 MPH at the Bonneville Salt Flats.
