Vehicles that do not pollute, with the same autonomy as those of traditional combustion, safe and with maximum refueling comfort. Moved by an electric motor, but without the long waits at the time of recharging. It is an ideal scenario, maybe «science fiction» for many, but more real than it seems. It’s about hydrogen fuel cell vehicles. A technology that is already real, although in Spain the possibilities of having a «hydrogenera» in which to refuel are almost non-existent.
It is a bet for the future in which the Hyundai Motor Group wants to count, and a lot. The Korean automaker has announced its ‘FCEV Vision 2030’ plan to be developed in the long term, reaffirming its commitment to accelerate the development of the hydrogen society, which will take advantage of the group’s global leadership in fuel cell technologies.
The operation of a fuel cell car, simplified to the maximum, would be the electrochemical process that occurs when hydrogen is mixed with oxygen and causes the propulsion of the vehicle. During this mixture, an electricity is generated that passes to some batteries and from the batteries to the engine, with the only emission of water vapor and nitrogen.
