Studebaker Museum Shows Off There Newest Exhibit


The Studebaker National Museum in South Bend opened its newest exhibit this week.

Called "Alternative Fuel Vehicles: Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow."

Even though we may think otherwise, alternative fuel cars were not just created in the last 20 years.

The yesterday section features a 1911 Studebaker Electric Car.

The today showcases a 2007 Honda Accord.

The most futuristic car on display is GM's Autonomy Concept Vehicle.

“The concept is that you would have a skateboard where you keep your hydrogen. And the body would be interchangeable,” says Tony Smith, Curator of Collections,

He also said, “So you would have your kids in the mini-van during the day and you and our spouse would go out at night in the sports car body.”

The museum is also showing off another hydrogen vehicle.

This one is a remote controlled car, called the smallest hydrogen vehicle ever created.
