The hydrogen car has a good formula
That using fuel cells to build electric cars powered by hydrogen is technically feasible is something that has been demonstrated time and time again, and brilliantly, by all the prototypes that have been manufactured, as well as the models that have been marketed. That’s why it can be great formula to satisfy the market.
And it is that the hydrogen car is a type of vehicle considered zero emissions, which works through a fuel cell in which hydrogen is oxidized to produce the electricity that moves it. In the process only water vapor is released. There, and depending on the model, there are one or more electric motors that are responsible for the movement of the car.
Both the battery and the fuel cell will be attached to it. This section would be completed by the tank, where the hydrogen is stored. As you see, one totally ecological solution that responds to a great appreciation by all to shape an idea that already seems to have a good direction on our roads to face a future with a good view of this hydrogen car.
The points of the hydrogen car
Because no, the electric car is not the only way to unseat the combustion car. And there, the hydrogen is observed with good guarantees for all, although today it is still a little behind in terms of maturation of your technology and its practical development (for the real world), but many see in it the answer to that question.
Its place in the future is almost immediate: one only has to look at the plans that the European Union glimpses in a few years to implement its development before the end of combustion engines (year 2035). This has caused several manufacturers to not only look carefully at the electrified vehicle, but also at the possibility of entrench and double your bet with which it has to do with hydrogen. Hyundai does really well with its Nexo, but Honda is also in this approach. And they will not be the only ones.
All in all, we can say that hydrogen vehicles are, on paper, better than electric ones, because they don’t pollute either, they usually offer greater average range and are refuel in three to four minutesalmost like a traditional gasoline or diesel model.
Likewise, and the strengths of hydrogen are based on the fact that it is a very abundant element on the planet whose fuel does not generate emissions. In addition, it can be transported and stored on a large scale with relative ease, which is not the case with other alternatives to mobility such as battery-based electromobility.
A great solution to reduce polluting emissions
Based on these data, the feasibility of being able to lead a normal life, as far as mobility is concerned, with a hydrogen car seems total. The problem arises from two other points: its price and the amount of refueling points. Currently the existing models range between 70,000 and 80,000 euros, prices that are not very accessible for most.
The low production, together with the fact that it is still in a phase, although advanced, of development results in the difficulty of being able to lower its cost. Despite the fact that it was produced on a large scale, its high price would be difficult to reduce since the production of the aforementioned pile is based on rare and precious metals whose market value is high. Also, in terms of money, it should be noted that the cost of producing hydrogen is high, which causes refueling to skyrocket. The sale price is around 12 euros per kilo.
In any case, hydrogen, as inexhaustible source of energywould be a great solution to reduce polluting emissions not only from road traffic, but also from maritime or air mobility, or those produced by heating in homes or industries in their production processes.
