A hydrogen powered golf car?!


Yamaha Golf-Car Company, a consolidated subsidiary of the Yamaha Motor Corporation, has developed a hydrogen-powered engine golf car concept model, the DRIVE H2. The concept model is the first of its kind and is currently on display at the PGA Show in Orlando, Florida.


Hydrogen engines are internal combustion engines that can make use of existing technologies and at the same time do not emit COduring the combustion process. For this reason, Yamaha is conducting research and development of this technology as it has the potential to achieve both the continued use of internal combustion engines and decarbonization.


The DRIVE H2 is based on Yamaha’s DRIVE2 CONCIERGE4, a four-seat golf car sold mainly in the United States. It’s equipped with two high-pressure hydrogen tanks, 25L each, positioned under the driver’s seat and on the back of the rear seat.


To date, Yamaha has announced concept models equipped with hydrogen engines, including generators and ROVs, and now the DRIVE H2.
