Nissan and Renault have decided to suspend their plans to market a vehicle powered by hydrogen fuel cells that were being developed jointly with Daimler and Ford.

Nissan and Renault have decided to suspend plans to market a hydrogen-powered vehicle that was being developed jointly with Daimler and Ford. The project, which began in 2013, aimed to jointly design the components of the fuel cell, which would be shared to lower costs of both development and manufacturing. Finally, the program, which aimed to launch an affordable car with hydrogen propulsion in 2017, has been suspended indefinitely.
