Hyundai’s fuel cell vehicle is almost ready to roll

tgdaily.com -- Is the finish line for hydrogen fuel cell vehicles in sight for Hyundai?

Yes, if they are to be believed from a recent event in London where the company showcased the ix35, the automaker’s third generation fuel cell ride. If all goes according to plan, Hyundai expects by the end of 2012 to produce 1,000 fuel cell vehicles for both government and private fleets.

Of course Hyundai is not the only one aiming for mass production of fuel cell vehicles, which the auto manufacturer currently predicts will happen by 2015. That same time frame is shared by others, such as Toyota, for example, while Opel, GM’s European subsidiary, announced last year its test fleet of these types of cars had already passed the two million mile mark.

Fuel cells and hydrogen are our real energy future. Honda has them all beat with hydrogen powered fuel cell cars operating on the West coast for the past year or so. Now is the time to speed up the development of low cost hydrogen generation. If you already have a solar panel system, you can do it now for free with a simple electrolysis process.

How much does one cost?

If it is not affordable only Al Gore can buy one.

325, 425, 400 miles per charge. That would be 30 miles to work, 30 miles back 5 times per week and 100 miles on the weekend, easily a weeks worth of driving for many commuters. Hydrogen stations are not around now, but "if you build it (FCV), they will come (stations).

Hydrogen fuel cell vehicles would be OK if there were places to fill them with hydrogen. I have seen any hydrogen filling stations. So who's gonna buy these?

Not for me unless they have a fuel cell vehicle that goes 600+ miles in a single charge.

We are decades away from a hydrogen infrastructure. They're only viable in areas where you can fill-up. Forget about going on a long (cross country) trip in one of those things.
