As many automakers turn their attention to electric vehicles, fuel cells are not getting as much attention as they used to. Though we don't see either electric or fuel cell-powered vehicles capturing a majority of the automotive market any time soon, several studies have suggested that the growth of battery-powered vehicles will outpace fuel cells. Now, a new study from Pike Research has emerged suggesting that fuel cell vehicles are ripe for an explosive increase in volume. Pike predicts fuel c
The Big Japanese Three automakers are all working on fuel cell vehicles. This is no surprise, especially to anyone who remembers that, between 1998 and 2004, two out of every three fuel cell patent applications were filed by Japanese companies. What might be a surprise is how big the domestic fuel cell market there might be in fifteen years.
Peugeot will be showing off a new demonstration vehicle this week at a hydrogen technology conference in Lyon, France. The research vehicle is based on a 307 CC coupe-convertible and is entirely propelled by electricity. The 307 demonstrator has an extended range electric powertrain, much like the Chevy Volt. However, this one uses a hydrogen fuel cell as the range extender. The car uses a plug-in lithium ion battery pack from Johnson Controls-Saft but Peugeot has not stated what the plug-in ran
Toyota, Nissan and Honda all participated in a fuel cell demonstration run in Japan last week. The three automakers brought their most advanced hydrogen fuel cell vehicles out for the two-day trip from Tokyo to Fukuoka with an overnight stop in Osaka. The driving teams piloted a Honda FCX Clarity, a Nissan X-Trail FCV and a Toyota Highlander FCHV-adv. Back in 2007, a Toyota FCHV traveled from Osaka to Tokyo on one tank of H2.
Over two years ago, we first learned the British Columbia Transit was planning to acquire 20 fuel cell-powered buses for use in the Whistler area ahead of the 2010 Winter Olympics. The first of those buses was recently delivered to the transit company with the rest arriving over the coming weeks and months. The 20 bus-fleet will be the single largest deployment of hydrogen-fueled buses in the world. The buses are built on chassis supplied by ISE Corporation and use fuel cell stacks supplied by B
