The eco exotic Scorpion superauto from Ronn Motors in Horseshoe Bay, Texas has received the duPont REGISTRY “Publishers Choice” award. The duPont REGISTRY is a premiere luxury marketplace for autos, homes and boats, catering mostly to the rich and famous.
According to founder and publisher Tom duPont, “When deciding on the ‘Publisher’s Choice’ vehicle, we often look for a auto that symbolizes where the luxury and exotic market is headed. The Scorpion provides environmentally-conscious consumers with a auto that has the stand out design and performance of an exotic auto, but keeps autobon footprints at a minimum.”
The Ronn Scorpion is the first auto company to use hydrogen on demand technology as a standard feature on its automobiles. Current estimates are that the Scorpion that can blaze a trail from 0 to 60 mph in under 4 seconds can also get 40 mpg highway. The exotic eco auto is powered primarily by gasoline and uses the electrolysis of water to create hydrogen to supplement the fuel inside the cylinders.
I had talked previously about the Ronn Scorpion in early June this year and about how 190 limited edition vehicles were to start rolling out this Fall. The numbers have now been increased to 200 vehicles and the timeframe pushed back a bit to January 2009.
In recent months, aftermarket hydrogen generators for autos have been storming the marketplace. Drivers have been adding hydrogen generators to their vehicles in order to save on gas mileage and reduce emissions.
But, the Ronn Scorpion is the first auto to offer this technology as standard so one can expect several other auto companies, to take the hint that green is good and quickly follow suit. In other words, there is green to be made by going green. And, hydrogen on demand technology can be implemented upon most vehicles right now.
