Fuel cell vehicles that use hydrogen and emit only water have long been a goal of green-energy advocates. They have potential advantages over Truck volumes can’t come close to volumes of passenger cars . We can come up with various scenarios to reduce costs by mass producing cars

These hydrogen-powered, all- electric cars have been in development for decades as alternatives to The number of fuel - cell vehicles has been growing steadily since they entered the retail market in mid-2015 Fuel - cell makers have employed numerous strategies to reduce the mass of precious metal

"Our goal in 2025 is to build cars with fuel cells that cost as much as electric vehicles with battery drives," said Saehoon Kim, head of the fuel cell division at Hyundai, the newspaper "Welt". Vehicles with hydrogen fuel cells have so far been significantly more expensive than electric cars with battery storage.

The increase in production is the decisive lever to reduce costs. “This year we are planning to build 13,000 Nexo and we want to continuously increase production every year from now on. Our current goal for 2030 is to build 500,000 cars with fuel cells, »said Kim. The Hyundai Nexo is currently the only fuel cell car with growing series production alongside the Mirai from the competitor Toyota.

Everything you need to know about insuring an electric vehicle

  Everything you need to know about insuring an electric vehicle Electric cars are here to stay. Read more to lean about purchasing and insuring an electric vehicle.Robert Anderson invented the first electric car in 1832, but only in recent decades have electric cars become major contenders in the automobile industry. In the past, electric cars could only travel short distances on a single charge - 100 miles or less - and most consumers couldn't afford the lofty sticker prices. But today, many electric vehicles cost less than $40,000 and some have a range of more than 370 miles on a single charge. Setting up a home charging station costs just $200-$1,000, and you can juice up on the road at pay charging stations from coast to coast.

Unlike the German car manufacturers, Hyundai and Toyota are aiming to continuously expand their business with these vehicles in the coming years. «Most European automobile manufacturers say that fuel cells are a technology for the coming decade. We believe it is a technology for this decade, ”said Kim.

It took more than ten years to set up a supply chain for this. "For all those who are still relatively early in this process, it is of course understandable conclusion that the fuel cell will only be a technology for the next decade," says Kim.

Together with Kia, Hyundai is the fifth largest automaker in the world. The VW rival had announced that it would move into the group of the three largest manufacturers of batteries and fuel cell vehicles by 2025.

Cars with fuel cells, in which hydrogen reacts with oxygen to water and thus provides the necessary drive energy, are considered an alternative to pure electric cars with battery drives. So far, the costs for such vehicles have been high - also because of the still very small number of models and infrastructure. In addition, the previous splitting of water is energy intensive. Some observers therefore see the fuel cell as a long-term solution.
