Japanese car crosses Australia
AFAR
12/29/2003

An eco-friendly Japanese-built car, the Apollondine, made history by crossing Australia. Running solely on hydrogen and solar power, this car designed by students at Tamagawa University, Tokyo has no exhaust emissions aside from pure water. Upon completion of the 2,533-mile journey from Perty to Sydney, Sydney's Lord Mayor sampled a glass of the water emissions. Apollondine was the fusion of the names of the ancient Greek gods of the Sun and Water.
