Toyota to Bring Out Hydrogen Fuel Cell Cars
Experts have been of the opinion since long that the hydrogen fuel cells probably have the potential to power a car in a perfect manner.
These cells are believed to generate electricity, while releasing only water vapour. A recent report has uncovered that where some cars have been tested, Toyota is close to bring these in picture.
In the `90s, skeptics were challenged by the automaker with the introduction of Prius gasoline-electric hybrid cars by it. Now, the company has been, seemingly, seeking a fuel-cell sequel.
Hydrogen is the most copious element in the universe, the report said. The appeal of the same as a replacement of gasoline helped carmakers back almost a decade in projecting numerous fuel cell autos on the road down the road i. e. by now.
It is being said that the bait for hydrogen cars is undiminished. However, a major market for these kinds of cars is probably still away by a decade or so.
According to the International Council on Clean Transportation environmental policy group's program director, John German, everyone was in the `trench of disillusionment' for these vehicles.
"You could take best case of a fuel cell, theoretically the best case, and it does not compete with lithium-ion cells today. And lithium-ion cells are far from their optimum", said Elon Musk, Tesla Chief Executive Officer.
