When a hydrogen injection powertrain comes wrapped in a vehicle as styled as the Ronn Motor Company Scorpion, it’s sure to attract attention. The H2GO system that RMC uses in the Scorpion injects small amounts of hydrogen, generated on board, into the fuel line. RMC claims that the H2GO system improves mileage by 20 to 30 percent and drops CO2 output as well. RMC announced this week that the Chinese government is interested in learning more about the H2GO system – their growing domestic auto market could use cleaner cars – and that RMC and Frigette Energy System representatives will be traveling there in June. We drove the Scorpion back in March and can, at the very least, confirm that the car looks better in person than it does in the pictures. As for whether H2GO works as advertised, well, we’re looking forward to spending some more time with the car to test things out for ourselves. We’ll also be interested in hearing what the Chinese think. More details after the jump.
