In recent years, there has been a notable shift in the global perspective toward sustainability, which has resulted in an enormous spike in demand for renewable power sources in vehicle technology.
The contemporary mode of transportation, which relies heavily on internal combustion (IC) engines, contributes significantly to the worldwide emission of greenhouse gases.
A battery electric vehicle (BEV) is an electric vehicle that exclusively utilizes rechargeable batteries to provide power to its electric motor for propulsion.
Battery-Powered Electric Vehicles
Hydrogen fuel cell vehicles (HFCVs) use electricity to power an electric motor. The fuel cell generates electricity through an electrochemical reaction in which hydrogen and oxygen are combined to generate electricity, heat, and water.
Hydrogen Fuel Powered Electric Vehicles
Hydrogen fuel cells have a far greater energy storage density than lithium-ion batteries, offering a significant range advantage for electric vehicles.
What makes Hydrogen fuel special?
1. They reduce greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution.
2. Hydrogen fuel cells can travel long distances without recharging.
3. Hydrogen fuel cell systems are lighter than battery systems.
