Renowned South African motorcycle designer Pierre Terblanche and students from the Tshwane University of Technology in Pretoria, South Africa have designed and built a hydrogen fuel-powered tricycle. Dubbed the 'Ahi Fambeni,' which means "let’s go” in the Tsonga language, the bike is intended to provide inexpensive transportation for rural people.
The Ahi Fambeni uses hydrogen storage technology developed by Hydrogen SA Systems. The specialty of the bike is that it is not powered by a battery but by a fuel cell. The Ahi Fambeni has already been launched in South Africa and the team is planning to develop a hydrogen fuel cell-powered car.
