Engine 2.3 litre Supercharged

The Ford Model U concept which the blue oval company unveiled at the 2003 Detroit Motor Show was a technologically advanced concept designed to showcase some of Ford's cutting edge technology.

The Model U featured the world's first hydrogen fueled internal combustion engine, a 2.3 litre supercharged unit which produced 118 horsepower. This engine worked in conjunction with an electric motor and a pair of clutches which meant that power from the engine, the electric motor, or both could be used depending on the drivers needs. Helping keep the batteries for the electric motor topped up was a regenerative braking system.

The name of the Model U concept was intended to recall the popularity of the Model T, the car which brought automotive transport to the masses, and which is still one of Ford's most successful models ever.
