One reason for the lack of hydrogen cars on our streets is the growing uptake of electric vehicles as the green alternative – with sales of pure EVs rising by 37 per cent year-on-year, it's easy for manufacturers to prioritise EVs over lesser-known tech. Another reason is infrastructure.
What countries use hydrogen fuel cells the most?
Japan. Japan is arguably green hydrogen's most advanced market worldwide, “especially with respect to importing hydrogen for domestic applications such as transport,” said Hablutzel. The country leads the way in hydrogen fuel-cell vehicle development thanks to the efforts of auto makers such as Toyota and Honda.
Why are hydrogen engines a bad idea?
