Hydrogen Fuel Cell Cars Here Today, Not 10 Years From Now
ALEXANDRIA, Va. – To the 48% of consumers who think that hydrogen fuel cell vehicles are at least a decade away, the auto industry is saying, “Welcome to the year 2024!”
In May, Hyundai Motor Co. began leasing a fuel-cell version of its Tucson sport-utility vehicle in California — the first mass- produced fuel cell vehicle to be sold in the United States. Other automakers plan to introduce their vehicles beginning next year.
To support the sale — or leasing — of these new vehicles, the California Energy Commission also announced in May that that it is investing $46.6 million to help develop the hydrogen fueling infrastructure in the state. This latest investment will add 28 stations to the nine in operation and 17 under development in the state, according to USA Today.
