Benefits

The benefits of vehicles such as the Hy-wire with their fuel cell and drive-by-wire technology include environmental, economic, and general consumer benefits. Because fuel cells produce zero emissions, they are much friendlier to the environment. The output from the chemical reaction within the fuel cell is simply electricity, water, and heat. Fuel-cell vehicles are also an improvement over battery-powered vehicles because they can travel farther between refueling, and they release fewer pollutants when considered across the entire system of fuel recovery, processing, and utilization. The economic benefits come from the ability of countries such as the United States to be more energy independent and not have to rely as much upon imported petroleum products.

The consumer benefits include increased visibility in the vehicle and increased passenger and storage space. With all the vehicle components contained in the low-profile chassis, the body style is able to be designed in an open, user-centric manner without the need for engine storage compartments and other items that can limit driver visibility and accessibility. Being able to snap on different body styles means that consumers could switch from an SUV body style to a sedan body style or even from a farm vehicle body style to a limousine body style as needed.
