There is a lot of debate about whether it's worth trading in your gasoline-powered car for an all hydrogen or hybrid vehicle. You've got to decide, which one will save you more money? Is driving range really important enough that you would give up most acceleration and torque capabilities just so the fuel cell won't run out on long drives? With time running out on traditional fossil fuels, there are many advantages as well as disadvantages to consider when deciding what type of new ride best suits your needs.
When you imagine the near future, what is going to happen with our cars? Some people think that hybrid vehicles are just way too small for a family. If this is true and hydrogen cars become available on the market soon, then they may be your best bet if you want something bigger. One of these new types of fuel-efficient automobiles can fit up to eight passengers in it! And let's not forget all about how environmentally friendly these models will actually make us: No more gas emissions or pollution at all!
Hydrogen cars do not generate power by burning anything
Hydrogen cars are intriguing because they can run indefinitely without burning a single drop of fuel. Instead, hydrogen and oxygen molecules will react to produce pure water as their by product. They don't need the same type of complex drivetrain found in hybrid vehicles like those that exist today on American roads since no combustion is needed at all but rather an electric motor powered exclusively by electricity from batteries which stores energy generated while driving or braking thanks to regenerative breaking technology.
Hydrogen in hydrogen cars gives three times the power of gasoline
Even though hydrogen cars are still a new technology, they have one big advantage over hybrid cars: their fuel is much more efficient. Hybrid-car batteries can only recharge so quickly and the car's engine will need to work overtime in order for it to keep up with traffic speeds--rather limiting its efficiency potential. On top of that, hybrids don't even come close when it comes to cost or performance!
Not only does hydrogen burn hotter than gasoline but also burns faster; this means that if we were ever able find an affordable way produce enough volume at high pressure (which would be hard), then these vehicles could probably go zooming down highways blazingly fast while getting us there as effortlessly as possible without any emissions whatsoever since there wouldn’
Some people think that hydrogen cars are some sort of hyped-up fantasy
Many people think that hybrid cars are much more feasible than hydrogen cars. And hybrid cars already cut down emissions from 30 to 50%. So why in the world would people want to invest time and money in hydrogen cars?
Hydrogen is a not a fuel source, but a fuel carrier
That means that hydrogen has to be produced from other sources. And people are hoping that hydrogen will be able to be produced from things such as wind power or other types of renewable sources. Right now, it looks like all we have is natural gas. That is the most efficient way to get hydrogen. And if that's the case, then there's no need to make hydrogen cars. Hybrid cars already cut down on how much gas people use. Who needs hydrogen cars that may end up costing us more in natural gas?
It will be hard create a lot of stations to fuel hydrogen cars
Elon Musk is a visionary. He's created the Tesla, which has revolutionized sustainability and efficiency in car manufacturing with its electric engine that costs less than most other cars on the market - but he doesn't stop there! His latest project sounds like it will change transportation as we know it: The hydrogen fuel cell powered vehicle.
While still only at prototype stage, plans are already being drawn up for how to create an infrastructure of fueling stations around major cities across Canada if this revolutionary concept takes off (and considering Elon Musk's track record so far...). With his innovative vision and drive towards sustainable renewable energy sources coupled together with our ever-growing demand for gas station convenience; no doubt these "hydrogen" vehicles would be high on many people
But president Bush has made it clear that he wants hydrogen cars to be on the roads in significant numbers by the year 2020. So it seems that those who oppose hydrogen cars might just have to hold their breath and see if hydrogen cars actually live up to the lofty promises people associate with them. If they don't live up to their promises, people will probably start running back to hybrid cars in droves. And that's not too bad. Hybrid cars or hydrogen cars, one of them is going to get us to cleaner air.
