Audi planning A7 powered by fuel cell?

Back in March,
Volkswagen AG CEO Martin Winterkorn
voiced his doubts about the cost and infrastructure associated with building hydrogen
fuel cell vehicles, but according to
Autocar, that isn’t stopping
Audi from developing a fuel-cell version of the
Audi A7. While we’re inclined to take this report with a grain of salt, this wouldn’t be the first time a
VW executive has made seemingly
damning statements about electric powertrains that later proved to be incorrect.

After speaking with
Audi technical chief Wolfgang Dürheimer,
Autocar reports that Audi is building a fuel cell
A7 that is expected to be ready for testing by August. Like the electric
E-Tron and natural-gas-powered
G-Tron models, the hydrogen fuel cell Audis could, if produced, carry their own «tron» nomenclature.
