With many of the world’s leading vehicle manufacturers developing Fuel Cell Vehicles (FCVs) how do these sustainable alternatives to petroleum-powered models work? What are the benefits of FCVs?
FCVs are electric vehicles that operate using compressed hydrogen gas as fuel and whose only tailpipe emission is water vapor. In these vehicles, fuel cells utilize a chemical process to produce electricity without combustion. The fuel cell-generated electricity then powers an electric motor, just as a battery does in a battery electric vehicle.
With a better understanding of FCVs, you will be in a position to make more informed choices about this developing alternative to today’s technologies.
