Fuel cell cars from Toyota, Honda, Hyundai set to debut at auto shows - latimes.com

Fuel cell cars from Toyota, Honda, Hyundai set to debut at auto shows - latimes.com:

We've been waiting for decades (50 years?) for a fuel cell car.

It looks like Toyota will come out fist with a Fuel Cell car next year.

The fuel cell being announced this next week are coming from Honda and Hyundai.

Unfortunately, it seems, these will be hydrogen fuel based.

Other versions of Fuel Cell generators use liquid fuels, not straight hydrogen. Without fueling stations for hydrogen the technology is stuck where LP  and LNG was 10 years ago before Clean Energy (and others) started putting up liquid natgas stations along the trucking corridors.

Let's see what the announcement(s) bring.

  1. Well, here's the results on from the FuelCell vehicles from the auto shows... Some very cool stuff and some very futuristic looking FC vehicles.

    You gotta chuckle about the lines you will see on the topic such as this: "Since the hydrogen isn't burned, there's no pollution..." There is more than one way to get energy from hydrogen (combined with oxygen in the air). Burn it, as in an internal combustion engine. Or a chemical reaction approach such as Fuel Cell. All approaches result in H2O... Water (vapor).
