A team of Turkish students from Sakarya University are entering an hydrogen-powered vehicle that gets 568 kilometers per liter, or 1,335 miles per gallon into the Global Green Challenge, a competition that takes place in the Australian Outback.
They expect to use just three liters of fuel in the $170,000, 110 kg, carbon fiber-framed 'SAHÄ°MO' eco-car.
As seen in the video, "The students' ultimate goal is to trek SAHÄ°MO across 3,000 kilometers of the Australian Outback on just 3 liters of fuel in the inaugural 2009 Global Green Challenge. And you thought you were getting good mileage out of your Prius!"
Implications - It seems that companies need look no further than their local colleges for the future.
