!!️IN AUSTRALIA MARKETS FIRST HYDROGEN CAR!! ️

While we're looking for the last drops of oil, Australia's first hydrogen car is marketed, with loading stations in just 5 minutes.
The car runs 900 kilometers with a fill and while moving it cleanses the air.
For the first time hydrogen fuel cell technology is applied massively on a marketed car and above all allows you to have such significant autonomy, with very low charging times.
It's Hyundai Nexo, a small-cylinder car that beats all the world car manufacturers and sets a record of sustainability; with a load of 6,27 kilograms of hydrogen purifies 449.100 litres of air during the journey (as much as the consumption of 33 person breath for an entire day) and it only emits water from its exhaust pipe. This car doesn't produce CO2, or any other pollutant emissions;
Just think that an equivalent vehicle with a traditional combustion engine at the same distance emits about 126 kg of CO2.
The hydrogen engine enters the car market and focuses on joining the electric one among the sustainable mobility solutions the world is adopting. Hyunday becomes the world's first car company to produce a hydrogen fuel cell vehicle for the market.
The car fitted a hydrogen fuel cell system that to generate electricity passes gas through a membranous structure where it meets air taken from the external environment, a process that fuels an electric motor. Electricity generated in excess, including energy accumulated during braking, is stored in a lithium ion battery. Nexo restock takes 5 minutes.
The first nation where the car was put up for sale is Australia, where the first refueling stations were also built.
A true vision of sustainable future.

How are the Aussies first to commit?

Fuel cell cars have been around for quite a few years now.

Sounds like regurgitation of advertising speak, James May is on his second Mirai

I’m happy to wait for a tried and tested hydrogen vehicle with accessible filling stations rather than replace my ICE with a fast, soulless milk float.

That's exactly what I will wait for when there is no other option.

Same here. I just read the Which cost of ownership comparison. Ev versus petrol versions of the same ( as close as possible) cars.
Mini One EV costs £6000 more over 3 years. The negative is due to the much higher RRP of the EV. Peugot 2008 came out at £4600 more for EV.
The breakeven is quite a long time.
The trouble is politicians have pushed for EV so hard that manufacturers are hemmed in.
I would have though5 that the Oil industry would be moving towards Hydrogen based on refineries that could be reopened and their existing distribution systems modified.
Milford Haven already takes in over a third of our gas and there is a pipeline taking it away.

Hydrogen is generally made by electrolysis not cat cracked from oil. The oil companies will have enough issue now as petrol & diesel declines but they still need the other oil based products for chemicals.

Currently (no joke intended) it is derived from fossil gas mainly electrolysis is a small percentage presently

Wonder what is happening to the solar PV powered hydrogen plant at Honda in Swindon now that they have closed down.
