This initiative occurred before we even had electric cars. I have read that Henry presented a car that was made using hemp. I believe that the materials the vehicle was made from were durable fibers, including hemp. The vehicle allegedly ran off hemp fuel and vegetable oil. There are lots of videos on YouTube and articles that refer to the hemp car made by Henry Ford. However, this matter does get disputed because some do not believe that Henry could be so advanced in the 1940s. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp wavess 0 Questions 234 Answers 0 Best Answers 495 Points View Profile wavess 2020-06-27T09:35:10-04:00Added an answer on June 27, 2020 at 9:35 am Yes, you can check pretty much any reputable source and they’ll agree that Henry Ford did make a hemp-based car in 1941. Ford was an innovator above all else, he also made other one-of-a-kind inventions, many that did not see the light of day. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Abe Melbourne, Australia 2 Questions 238 Answers 0 Best Answers 559 Points View Profile Abigail 2020-06-26T22:58:13-04:00Added an answer on June 26, 2020 at 10:58 pm As I have explained for a similar question, they almost did it. He even prepared the exact calculations for planting tomato per acre to produce alcohol; a famous quote of Ford says, “there’s enough alcohol in one year’s yield of an acre of potatoes to drive the machinery necessary to cultivate the fields for one hundred years.” Ford introduced his product-in-mind in 1941, supported by 12 years of hard-working research, a car entirely made out of hemp, equipped with hydraulic pressure panels and tubular welded frame, namely the only steel part of the vehicle. He even contracted Rudolf diesel to design the engine. Eventually, the competition between the gasoline industry and the advocates of biodiesel ended to the detriment of the later, which at that time was nothing more than an idea. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp wordsmith 0 Questions 256 Answers 0 Best Answers 531 Points View Profile wordsmith 2020-06-26T10:49:36-04:00Added an answer on June 26, 2020 at 10:49 am In 1941, Henry Ford revealed his product that might have made our environment better, a hemp-fueled car that is also thoroughly made out of hemp. Among the entire body, the only steel was in the car’s tubular welded frame. Its body is ten times stronger than steel because of resin binder and panels that were made of cellulose fibers from hemp, wheat straw, and sisal. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp hempbarn32 4 Questions 38 Answers 0 Best Answers 79 Points View Profile hempbarn32 2020-05-27T12:36:05-04:00Added an answer on May 27, 2020 at 12:36 pm This answer was edited.

The video is cool to watch, but it’s a sad reminder of where we are in terms of alternative fuel. To know that this invention is multiple decades old makes me feel like we skipped the less-destructive fuel type, to the non-emission teslas that are about to be driven by the masses. Big shout out to the oil industry and their loyal lobbyists over the years. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp amanda.tolar Waynesburg, United States (US) 0 Questions 313 Answers 0 Best Answers 660 Points View Profile amanda.tolar 2020-05-07T03:10:37-04:00Added an answer on May 7, 2020 at 3:10 am He most certainly did! You can easily find a video online of him testing out the car’s strength and durability–by way of bashing it with an axe! It’s hard to grasp until you see it, but the axe head bounces off of the car. Not only was it primarily made of hemp, but it also ran on hemp fuel! Kind of a bummer to think about how much better shape our environment would be in currently had it caught on. ): 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp hempbarn32 4 Questions 38 Answers 0 Best Answers 79 Points View Profile hempbarn32 2020-06-21T10:27:45-04:00Replied to answer on June 21, 2020 at 10:27 am Amanda,did you also know that Mercedes Benz C-class have over 25 parts that are made from hemp? Hemp plastic panels with a mixture of Hemp fiber, fiberglass, kenaf and flax. Hemp is starting to become a major player in the auto industry. Sadly not getting enough attention currently. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp CrayM 0 Questions 311 Answers 0 Best Answers 655 Points View Profile CrayM 2020-05-06T13:54:10-04:00Added an answer on May 6, 2020 at 1:54 pm Yes, they did. Back when Henry Ford was first developing the Ford Motor Company, they made a car almost entirely made of hemp, besides the steel frame. It also ran on 100% vegetable oil, from hemp but due to the impending marihuana bill during that time, it was never really introduced outside the Ford Company sphere. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Seymour Simone 0 Questions 96 Answers 0 Best Answers 202 Points View Profile Seymour Simone 2020-05-15T16:01:28-04:00Replied to answer on May 15, 2020 at 4:01 pm That’s crazy!

In the 1930s, after about 12 years of research Henry Ford made a Hemp based car in 1941. It was a hemp-fueld, hemp-bodied prototype car. The panels were composed of 70% hemp, which had the impact of strength ten times stronger than steel! 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerCancel replyYou must login to add an answer.
