ELECTRIC VEHICLE : BEVS VS FCEVS.
Posted by Clinton Ankutakpuie | Jan 21, 2023 | Electric vehicle, Environment
“FCEVs have drawn criticism from many, notably amongst them are Tesla’s CEO, Elon Musk and Volkswagen’s CEO Herbert Diess.

“Green hydrogen is needed for steel, chemical, aero,… and should not end up in cars. Far too expensive, inefficient, slow and difficult to rollout and transport” – Hebert Diess.

Challenges to Fuel Cell Adoption

Several challenges are standing in the way of widespread FCEV adoption.

One is in-car performance, though the difference is minor. In terms of maximum range, the best FCEV (Toyota Mirai) was EPA-rated for 402 miles, while the best BEV (Lucid Air) received 505 miles.

Two greater issues are 1) hydrogen’s efficiency problem, and 2) a very limited number of refueling stations. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, there are just 48 hydrogen stations across the entire country, with 47 located in California, and 1 located in Hawaii.

On the contrary, BEVs have 49,210 charging stations nationwide (United States), and can also be charged at home. This number is sure to grow, as the Biden administration has allocated $5 billion for states to expand their charging networks”

Which of the two might you want ? And why ?. Let’s get talking !
