engineers are working to replace the platinum in fuel cells with cheaper materials, which could lead to viable hydrogen cars

Mechanical and electrical engineers at DaimlerChrysler, General Motors and BMW have jointly developed a hybrid-vehicle technology that shuts the internal combustion engine off when the vehicle stops. Meanwhile, engineers are working to replace the platinum in fuel cells with cheaper materials, which could lead to viable hydrogen cars.

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. -- The high cost of hybrids has kept many people from going green, and a new Edmonds.com study shows that with the cost of gas -- combined with tax credits -- it only takes about three years to break even.

Now a new breed of hybrid is going to lessen that time even more. It's the brainchild of not one car company but DaimlerChrysler, General Motors and BMW! They are all working together to create the car of tomorrow.

    Hi Joydeep !Isnt it an old news. ?
     Audiís 2014 model year A4 under development is reportedly getting a few environmentally agreeable options, including a plug-in hybrid version. The rumor is that a fuel-burning engine will drive the hybridís front wheels, while a battery-powered electric motor turns the rear. All-electric range could be up to 37 miles, about the same as offered by a Chevrolet Volt. The Volt is designed to hit speeds up to 100 mph, but the speeds for the A4 running on battery power only are as of yet unknown
