The upcoming Shanghai World Expo will showcase 970 vehicles powered by new energy sources. They will be used to transport people inside the expo park.

The 4-seater vehicle is powered by electricity. It can drive 100 kilometers after 6 hours of charging. The 11-seater will run on hydrogen.

After supplying it with the gas for just three minutes, it can run 70 to 100 kilometers. The vehicles will transport visitors between pavilions, and on the main streets of the expo park.

Vehicle charging stations have been set up inside the park.

All the cars will be ready for use and transferred to the park in mid-April. They will highlight new "green energy" sources available to the auto industry.
