A revolutionary next-generation radio controlled (RC) toy car powered by clean fuel cell energy technology was unveiled today at the Nuremberg International Toy Fair in Germany.

The H2GO, from Corgi International, one of the world's leading toy-makers, combines classic playability with breakthrough zero emissions energy technology. Power for the H2GO is delivered by an on-board hydrogen fuel cell, where sun and water supply the fuelling unit with renewable, clean energy for unlimited play.

The first of a new range of toys to be launched under the brand name H2GO, the futuristic car was designed by acclaimed designer Professor Luigi Colani. The car boasts an eye-catching aerodynamic design and is made using lightweight environmentally-friendly wheat based plastics.

The H2GO is the result of a unique strategic partnership between Corgi International and Horizon Fuel Cell Technologies, a global leader in fuel cell development. Going forward, both companies aim to develop and produce a range of new toys using hydrogen fuel cells, making the H2GO brand a recognized global leader in clean energy toys.

Michael Cookson, CEO of Corgi International said: "Today marks a new chapter in the global toy market. The H2GO is not only a fascinating miniature-scale, real-working fuel cell powered RC toy that can be refueled using plain water, but marks a change in how the toy industry will need to transform and adapt to a clean energy future. I am delighted that together Corgi International and Horizon, can launch a product like the H2GO that offers not only great entertainment and playability but also has fantastic educational value. Discovering fuel cell technology and being able to fill the car's refuelling station just with water is an important part of the play experience."
