Hydrogen

Hydrogen is being explored for use in combustion engines and fuel cell electric vehicles. Hydrogen will be an important fuel of the future, since it will be able to be produced in unlimited quantities using renewable resources. The ability to create hydrogen from a variety of resources and its clean-burning properties make it a desirable alternative fuel.

Electricity

Vehicles can also run on electricity. Vehicles that run on electricity have no tail pipe emissions. There are some vehicles on the market today that are hybrid electric. This means that they can run on both gasoline and electricity. These vehicles use less gasoline than a normal car would and therefore pollute less.
