Cutting-edge technology used at Beijing Olympics makes its California debut

SACRAMENTO - June 5, 2009: Volkswagen showcased its Passat Lingyu fuel cell vehicles at the State Capitol on Wednesday, June 3, 2009 for state legislators and the media. And as he has in recent weeks, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger used the opportunity to talk about new energy technoloies.

The Passat Lingyu is a zero-emission vehicle powered by a hydrogen fuel cell that can go up to 90 mph and up to 140 miles before a refueling. In light of new federal greenhouse gas regulations, California’s new Low Carbon Fuels Standard and regulations due to AB 32, these vehicles are one example of a potential zero-emission car of the future. The Passat Lingyu debuted during the Olympic Games in Beijing, China and traveled more than 50,000 miles with zero emissions.

Presenting at the Capitol for Volkswagen was Anna-Maria Schneider, Director of Industry-Government Relations, and John Tillman, Program Manager for Volkswagen Advanced Powertrain Research.
