It’s the most basic of combustion engines, and it can’t even power itself.
“We’re still not completely sure how fuel cells work in that car,” said Volvo chief scientist Jan-Christian Svensson.
“But we do know that we can make fuel cells on the back of the engine.
It’s very straightforward to do.”
There’s a big market in fuel cells, but it’s a very difficult market,” he said.
The fuel cells have been around for a few years now, but there’s still a lot of work to do to make them work with a modern engine.”
We need to find a good battery supplier, we need to make sure the cells are not only a good quality but are able to run on battery power,” Svensson said.
That’s the challenge the fuel cells will face with Volvo’s Penta diesel, which was introduced in the U.K. last year.
Volvo says the Penta engine will use battery power, but Svensson says it will only be possible if the company can find a suitable supplier.
The Penta’s diesel engine is an evolution of Volvo’s existing Penta turbo diesel, known as the Pentax 690.
Like the Pentas, the Pentapower has been developed by a consortium of German firms, and the battery technology has also been improved over time.
When Volvo acquired the Pentapsac powertrain company in 2014, it made a huge bet on a new battery, a major step forward for the company.
Svensson said that it was not the first battery company Volvo had bought, and that it would not be the last.
He said the Pentacademy of Finland, a Finnish battery maker, had been the first company to develop a battery that would be able to power an electric car.
And it will be interesting to see how Volvo’s fuel cells fare in the Pentaflopsac, which Volvo hopes will be the most powerful and efficient petrol engine ever built.
