Product Title (In box)

  • Powered by solar panel or hydrogen fuel
  • No batteries required
  • Alternative power teaching aid
  • Educational yet also a fun toy
  • Real-working model of vehicles using hydrogen fuel

The H2GO Hybrid RC Car from Horizon combines next generation alternative energy education with all the joys of a toy remote controlled car. This entertaining teaching aid makes the H2GO kit an ideal tool for both kids and adults to take a hands-on approach in learning about how renewable energy works and the applications it possesses. The H2GO Hybrid RC Car can be powered by either solar energy or hydrogen fuel. When using the solar panel, energy from the sun will power the fueling station and charge the car’s super-capacitors as well as its remote control. To power the racer with hydrogen the fueling station needs to be filled with water so that it can draw hydrogen from it; the connected tube will then transfer the hydrogen to the car’s fuel cell for power. The H2GO Car doesn’t require the use of any batteries and is a real-working model scale version of current vehicles that are being powered by renewable and zero emission hydrogen fuel. Read More
