December 3, 2009 Horizon had a global hit with the first version of its palm-size hydrogen fuel cell educational toy car and the second version is likely to be just as successful – unfortunately, it won’t be available for the Christmas market (available January), but the H-racer 2.0 and refueling station now comes with twice the original power output, a manual purge system, new refueling valves and faster operation and an infrared remote control.

The H-racer 2.0 is part of the company’s new line of clean energy science education kits. You can learn more about these here or download a PDF brochure here.
