      The Focus FCV is one of the industry's first hybridized fuel cell
      vehicles combining the improved range and performance of hybrid
      technology with the overall benefits of a fuel cell.
      Using a fuel cell powertrain supplied by Ballard Power Systems, the
      world leader in proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cell technology,
      the FCV is hybridized with the addition of a nickel metal-hydride
      battery pack and a brake-by-wire electro-hydraulic series regenerative
      braking system. The fuel cell engine converts chemical energy into
      electric energy using hydrogen fuel and oxygen from air. The electric
      energy then powers the vehicle's electric drive motor, producing only
      water vapor and heat as by-products.
      Just like Honda's Insight and Civic hybrids, the new battery 'assists'
      the main powerplant by adding extra power when accelerating or climbing
      hills, and is charged by regenerative braking system when braking or
      decelerating. Of course, the Civic and Insight use a small gasoline
      internal combustion engine instead of a fuel cell, but the principle is
      the same....
