In addition to the electrical exploration as an alternative to fuel its electric car, BMW is also studying the possibility of use the hydrogen cell fuel its electric car. Accordingly, the company unveiled the Series 5 GT prototype which uses the hydrogen fuel cell to power its electric motor at its "Innovation Day" in France.

This is not the first After BMW is experimenting with hydrogen. Previously, the company is reported to use the hydrogen fuel cell hydrogen 7, which in the end only managed to travel about 124 miles on hydrogen. compared to hydrogen 7 the modified 5 series is able to do better at about 300 miles easily as it also comes with 245 horsepower, but it can not compete with electric i8 of the company in a drag race.

BMW works in collaboration with Toyota to develop approved parts industry by 2020. with this, the company hopes that other automakers will also consider making electric cars that run on hydrogen fuel cells. It will not be easy to build, affordable pervasive network of hydrogen stations, but BMW and others are open to the idea.

During his event Innovation Day, BMW also presented a new water injection system for its 1Series. When the liquid is sprayed onto the motor, then it will quickly evaporate and therefore lower, the combustion temperatures of about 25 degrees Celsius. It is a technology similar to that found in BMW M4, however, the difference is that M4 uses water from a five-liter tank is to be replenished while the 1 Series uses the condensed water from the system air conditioning and so it does not need to be replenished.

With all this innovation from BMW, hopefully, it will create a cleaner environment.
