First hydrogen car comes to market, charging in 5 minutes, And purifies the air as it moves

Australia’s first hydrogen car comes to market, complete with charging stations in just 5 minutes. The car travels 900 kilometers with the tank full and purifies the air as it moves forward. For the first time, hydrogen fuel cell technology is being applied serialized in a commercial car and, above all, it allows for such important autonomy, with very reduced charging times.

This is Hyundai Nexo, a small-cylinder car that beats all car manufacturers in the world and sets a sustainability record, with a charge of 6.27 kilograms of hydrogen that purifies 449,100 liters of air during e The journey (as much as the consumption of breathing of 33 people for a whole day) and it only emits water down your exhaust pipe.

This car produces no CO2 or other polluting emissions; just think that an equivalent vehicle, with a traditional combustion engine, emits about 126 kg of CO2 at the same distance. The hydrogen engine thus enters the automobile market and intends to join the electric one among the sustainable mobility solutions the world is adopting.

Hyundai thus becomes the first automaker in the world to produce a hydrogen fuel cell vehicle for the market. The car is equipped with a hydrogen fuel cell system that, to generate electricity, passes the gas through a membrane structure where it meets the air taken from the external environment, a process that feeds an electric motor.

The excess electricity generated, including energy stored during braking, is stored in a lithium-ion battery. Reposting the next takes 5 min. The first country to put the car on sale was Australia, where the first gas stations were also built. A true vision of a sustainable future.

    Brilliant but at what cost and will I ever find a hydrogen pump in the Highlands of Scotland?

      What happens in winter when the water coming out freezes on the roads and cars slide everywhere on ice?

    That is the future of the automotive industry.
    But it should be possible to eliminate the emission of water. A road with many cars circulating would be a wet road, with the danger that it can have.
    I think that a system should be implemented that would convert this eliminated water into cold vapor, such as humidifiers, or something similar.

    Toyota beat it to market by 8 years – the Toyota Mirai came to market in 2014 with a hydrogen fuel cell.

    I think you are forgetting the Honda FCX Clarity, which was the first hydrogen fuel cell car that came to market… in 2008

    This was 5 year ago possible its not new. This car is on the market since 2019. My nieghbour has one since the start.

    About time someone came up with something other than electric

    Great! When can I buy one in the UK and expect to bee able to fuel it?

    This is fantastic news! As someone who is always on the lookout for innovative and environmentally friendly technologies, I’m impressed by the features of this new hydrogen car. The ability to charge in just 5 minutes is a major advantage compared to traditional electric vehicles, making it a more practical option for daily use. And the fact that it purifies the air as it moves is just the cherry on top.

    I’ve been following the development of hydrogen fuel cell technology for some time now, and it’s great to see it finally come to fruition in the form of a consumer product. This car has the potential to revolutionize the way we think about transportation, and I’m excited to see how it will be adopted by consumers.

    I also appreciate the focus on sustainability, as reducing carbon emissions is crucial for the health of our planet. It’s heartening to see companies taking steps towards a cleaner future, and I hope that this new technology will inspire others to do the same.

    Overall, I’m looking forward to getting my hands on one of these vehicles and experiencing it for myself. I’m sure it will be a game-changer!

    I’m wondering how much power it requires per km compared with electric

    Im not trying to be sarcastic here but truly Asking a question. Water out of pipes in a winter time turns into ice creating a huge hazard in my opinion. Doesn’t it ?

      It is not like leaving the kitchen tap on. Your a/c in the car emits water and how many accidents are attributed to that water loss? I’m

      Living in Northern Ontario during the winter brings the water exhaust situation front and centre. The roads will be skating rinks.

    Indeed the Honda fsx clarity was the 1st many energy does it need to make hydrogen and what will be the price per KG to load??
    Al questions we don’t know yet.

    The first Hydrogen cars I heard about were in the 70s. I believe that Mechanics Illustrated covered this. The hydrogen was made by platinum catalytic cells from water, I believe.

    Proponents claim hydrogen fuel cells clean the air. I would like to know how they accomplish this.
    Like some other writers, I would be concerned about dumping water on the highway during the winter.

    Good until you wreck, then KABOOM.

    The claim that it cleans the air totally lacks any credibility. if it uses a fuel cell it simply combines oxygen in the air with hydrogen to produce energy and water. Agreed it won’t contribute CO2 to the atmosphere which is benefit but there is no credible mechanism by which it can remove pollutants from air.
    The grasp of science of the writer of this article is a manifestly deficient.

    Im confused if it runs on hydrogen why do you need a station to charge it

    People complaining about the expelled water need to keep in mind that it’s mostly in vapor form and pretty minimal.
