French Car manufacturer Peugeot shows a FuelCell powered Quad called Quark at the Paris Car Show 2004.
The Peugeot Quark is using electrical power provided by its batteries and the fuel cell. The power is transmitted to four independent electrical motors located in each of the vehicle’s wheels.
The Quark features ABS, ESP, cornering assistance and more.
The Fuel Cell Vehicle also has a recuperatory braking system. This allows recuperation of energy in deceleration when the electric motor brakes, in order to reduce the vehicle’s overall consumption.
the Quark has an air-cooled battery and a hydrogen store in a single cylinder.
Besides the fuel cell the concept vehicle features also the future in vehicle gadgetery. The Quark has a removable communications device that combines antitheft, starter, navigation by satellite, Bluetooth telephone, MP3 player, electronic diary and more.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
