Hydrogen fuel-cell vehicles-Toyota to launch in US next year 2015- domain-B

Toyota to launch hydrogen fuel-cell vehicles in US next year domain-B Hydrogen-powered electric cars are moving in at a brisk pace as fuel cell vehicles (FCVs) that use hydrogen as fuel for their batteries will be in use in Northern America by 2015…

 

Eric Roberts‘s insight:

Toyota The new Hydrogen fuel-cell vehicles will be able to get their electricity from an electrochemical between oxygen and hydrogen which will generate a current cars could be available earlier than thought.

The first British hydrogen filling station. Hence, for public to use ! Has now been opened in Swindon Wiltshire. Consequently, it is located at the giant Honda factory near South Marston. The new site will be open to the public. Although it is within the grounds of the Honda car factory.

This is the very first step. On the road towards attracting Hydrogen fuel-cell cars to the UK. So, the single pump will be able to fill The new Hydrogen fuel-cell vehicles. They will be able to get their electricity from an electrochemical between oxygen and hydrogen. Which will generate a current cars with a gas based hydrogen. Although any members of the public will have to pass a BOC safety course . Of course, before been able to fill their hydrogen cars.

The new Hydrogen fuel-cell vehicles will be able to get their electricity from an electrochemical between oxygen and hydrogen which will generate a current. The only wastes that are omitted are water vapour and heat making the cars extremely environmental friendly.

The new cars from Toyota are expected to be in use in the USA by as near as 2015.

 

This is much earlier than thought before. In my opinion this technology will be a winner. Eventually the motorist will be able to travel just as far as a conventional gasoline cars. Without having to have the time consuming inconvenience. So, of having to charge up the battery for the return journey. That’s of course unless the present battery technology is not significantly modified.

Other car makers have also shown more than interest. The new Hydrogen fuel-cell vehicles will be able to get their electricity from an electrochemical between oxygen and hydrogen which will generate a current. The new Hydrogen fuel-cell vehicles will be able to get their electricity from an electrochemical between oxygen and hydrogen which will generate a current powered car.  Honda of course and Hyundai as well as Toyota, who’s hydrogen cars are expectedThe new Hydrogen fuel-cells to be able to a range of about 300 miles from a full tank and the fuel will only take three or four minutes to fill the tank.

The USA are at the forefront of supplying fuel.

 

The new Hydrogen fuel-cell vehicles will be able to get their electricity.So, from an electrochemical between oxygen and hydrogen. Significantly, this will generate a string of filling stations. Naturally, with 68 stations stretching from San Diego to San Francisco, with a further 20 new filling stations to be built by 2015.

The new Toyota car is expected to be called the FV2. So, and will be made including all the latest IT technology. Making the car a real stunner. Another Toyota model will be known as the i-road . Which will be a three wheeler city car ! Of course, this car is well advanced and will be having trials in several cities. From Japan to France this year (2014)

Hydrogen Cell car-to be Ready in Two Years and Will Compete with Battery Electric Cars.

 Hydrogen Cell car to be Ready in Two Years

This is something that I have been writing about for a while now; the Toyota prototype has been unveiled to journalists from around the world. Toyota is expected to put this new technology vehicle a Hydrogen Cell car on sale in two years’ time.

Hydrogen Cell car

Hydrogen filling stations will be a common site on our forecourts in the near future along with other types of fuel ready for the Hydrogen Cell car

The new vehicle will be expected to be based on the Lexus HS a former Hybrid model week after Toyota confirmed aHydrogen Cell car project; this new Lexus  HS was seen being tested  in the heat of Death Valley, USA. One of the hottest places on earth. The car was also seen filling up from a re-fueling type truck which was heavily marked “HYDROGEN” , this now looks as if Toyota are well on their way in the development of this huge change in vehicle technology and totally opposite to the other car manufacturers, who are heading down the road of new car battery technology.

 

This new Hydrogen Cell car has already been driven by a few privileged motor journalists and the new Hydrogen Cell car has been given the thumbs up for the way that the vehicle handles, mainly due to the huge torque of the cars electric motors. Other  manufacturers are complaining that the use of this gas is not as green as the battery powered cars, mainly because the gas used in these cars is produced from natural gas, but you could argue that the electricity used to charge the battery cars is not green really because the electricity that recharges the hybrids batteries comes from dirty power stations using fossil fuels to make the electricity.

Surprisingly Toyota was not the first to use Hydrogen Cell car technology. The first car maker was their rivals Honda. In fact Honda developed a car based on the Honda FX as far back as 2008, 5 years ago. It is believed that Honda did not pursue with the project because there were no Hydrogen Cell car filling stations around at the time, and only 50 cars were built.

To service the gas driven cars there is already a network of  filling stations being built in Europe including the UK, where it is thought that deals have been struck with the large supermarket chains, to supply a pump on their fuel service forecourts. This and the addition of some new filling stations in London and hundred to be built in Germany will be music to the ears of Toyota, who I suspect will already know about these developments. 

All to be revealed at the Tokyo car show.

To conclude Toyota are planning to produce 10000 of these cars by the year 2017 and all will be revealed at the Tokyo car show. The Tokyo Motor Show will start on November 23rd when all will be revealed.

eric roberts‘s insight:

Toyota cars go ahead with Hydrogen fuel power

As a result of more advanced research. So, the hydrogen fuel cell technology has moved further on. Hence,

at this moment in time companies are setting up Hydrogen fuel-cell cars filling stations all over Europe. One company that has been heavily involved is Air Liquide . Consequently,who are in the process of developing filling stations. Indeed have built 60 new Hydrogen fuel-cell cars filling stations across the World.

Air Liquide have said that Hydrogen fuel-cell cars can be filled in a few minutes and the equipment that is used to fill the car is much the same as a diesel or petrol car and is just as safe.

Here in the UK we are making forward moves to build a network of Hydrogen fuel-cell cars fuel filling stations and negotiations are taking place to use the network of supermarket filling stations to accommodate Hydrogen Fuel Cells pumps alongside the standard pumps used for petrol and diesel.

This move by Toyota will bring into play a battle of the green choices; one will be Hydrogen fuel-cell cars and the other lithium-ion technologies, very interesting to see who will come out on top.

Eric Roberts‘s insight:

This is great news about the Toyota’s Prius EV Hydrogen Batteries

This news is good news for the many motoring fans.Thus, who think that the future should be a mix of technologies. In the World of cars. The past twenty years alone we have seen many new developments. Of course, In the battery World.

Apart from modifying the ever present free flow lead acid batteries. So we have seen the new battery types such as AGM and GEL batteries cropping up to serve as back up Varta batteries. Hence, for many industries such as computer back up systems and even for the early computers that we all used. All this new technology was introduced along with need for progress and the appetite from consumers and industry for better and faster electrical equipment.

This development has never stopped. Of late we have developed many new types of batteries. As a result, that were funded by Governments and large corporations. So, to satisfy the need of the ever expanding electrical and engineering projects. Whether they were large or small.

The next generation of batteries was to be known as the NiMH, Nickel metal hydride batteries. Mainly for use the ever expanding miniaturization of personnel computers. These were followed by the invention of the Lithium- Ion batteries . Invented in the 1990’s for use on the Stealth aircraft in the USA. Also used in the space program by NASA, the American space agency.

The latest surge in Toyota’s Prius EV development. Came when there was an urgent need to save the Earth from greenhouse gases. The main culprit is pollution from fossil fuel driven cars. So the Governments of the World. Have got together and agreed that emissions had to be reduced. This caused a frantic rush. Thus, for the car makers to come up with an alternative fuel supply. Hence, to gasoline products. Of course, the answer would be the electric or the hybrid car. At first car makers came up with the Lithium-Ion batteries and are still developing today.

Toyota’s Prius EV Looking for alternatives

However because these cars will not travel far. Of course, before the batteries require re-charging. Scientists are trying to come up with an alternative. One of the companies to do this is Toyota’s Prius EV from Japan. This new type of Toyota’s Prius EV battery is called the Hydrogen-cell battery and in my opinion will be the winner of this technology race in the future.

The car. Toyota’s Prius EV is expected to be coming onto the market as early as 2015. Already gas stations are been prepared by adding Hydrogen pumps on their forecourts. In my opinion, yet another step forward.

Eric Roberts‘s insight:

Green cars-Hydrogen cells the way forward

Of course, this form of green fuel (hydrogen) is in my opinion the way forward into the world without fossil fuels. So to run our vehicles on.

American DOE

American DOE funding more Hydrogen fuel cell technology

Because of this the American DOE are providing $4.5 million investment into this new technology. Consequently, Universities are now starting to come up with new methods of splitting water. See my recent post…https://www.pellonautocentre.com/?p=7009

The American DOE are particularly keen to invest in this new technology, hydrogen Fuel Cell Energy.

Here in the UK we are starting to set up Hydrogen pumps in London. So, the scheme is expected to roll out across the UK the following year. Hence, with two of the major petrol retailer supermarkets taking part by adding Hydrogen fuel cell on to their forecourts ! A huge step forward. it will be a race between the Lithium-Ion battery driven cars and the Hydrogen Fuel Cell driven cars.

I am still waiting for the information about what will be driving our trucks in the future, these are the real “gas gusslers” ?

Hydrogen Fuel Coming Closer-To Reality-As car companies strive for greener cars-Voice of America

Hydrogen Fuel Coming Closer

How a Hydrogen cell car works

Green Cars

Voice of America Hydrogen Fuel Coming Closer to Reality Voice of America With the new method, the amount of hydrogen produced for fuel cells 

With the recent news on Honda’s plans to produce its own hydrogen fuel cell car. Of course then car drivers around the world. Thus, are curious about this “newfound” fuel technology for cars. As a result, a hydrogen fuel cell consists of a conversion kit. carrying out an electrolysis process on plain water, Hence, to produce a gas called Hydroxy (which is a combination of hydrogen and oxygen). Of course,it may still be a while before hydrogen fuel cell cars roll out from the production line.

With 30 years’ work invested in hydrogen technology. Honda believes it’s the leader in the field. The new concept model is called the Clarity. Production cars aren’t widely available at the moment. At least,not enough of them. Surprisingly, the daily production output of the Clarity pilot plant in Japan is just three cars. Subsequently, they’re all going to places with more established infrastructure. Not surprisingly, with interest in this type of motoring. Of course places like Germany, Denmark, California and Japan. Not the UK I hasten to add.

Hydrogen Fuel Coming Closer

Of course, there are a lot of sources for hydrogen. Meaning depletion may not be a problem. Hydrogen can actually be produced from natural gas, oil, carbon. So and can even be produced from waste. Wind, sunlight and water can also be used in producing the element hydrogen. Of course, for the hydrogen fuel cell technology that can be used for cars.

Of course, efficiency is another advantage of hydrogen fuel cell technology. Hydrogen is found out to be an efficient source of fuel. Allowing your car to travel far distances with the same amount of fuel from petrol.

If you are one of the many.Hence, who think that cars powered by hydrogen fuel cell . Can be a great alternative? then you may want to learn and know what advantages this will give you.

Hydrogen fuel cell technology. So, has become one of the environment-friendly alternatives. of course, that many companies and individuals have explored. Thus, to put in place of the existing fuel. Which will face depletion of its sources in the future. Consequently, the world will run out of fossil fuels. Now of course, existing fuel sources are even contributing to the world’s pollution problems. This is an issue that hydrogen fuel cell technology can address.

Many millions of drivers are now  interested in using this new technology in running their car. Therefore,it is important that we learn everything about the technology. You can also get your car converted into something that can use hydrogen fuel cell technology. Cars like the Honda Clarity that are as hydrogen powered still cost a lot. Consequently are out of financial reach of most drivers.

Hydrogen fuel, does not contribute to air pollution. Probably one of the biggest advantages. Hence, of having your car run in hydrogen fuel. Of course, is the fact hydrogen is a clean source of energy. Not giving off emissions that can contribute big time to air pollution. This is one of the biggest things that also make this technology very appealing. Subsequently, as hydrogen cars grow in number. Then this will improve the quality of air that we have today.

As I have mentioned earlier, the technology is fairly new. One downside of this technology is that, the first cars will cost you. But of course, with its efficiency and being environmentally friendly. You will be actually get more than you pay for with cleaner air quality.

To conclude,one of the biggest advantages of having your car run in hydrogen fuel. So, is the fact hydrogen is a clean source of energy. Not giving off emissions that can contribute to air pollution. Sunlight, water and wind can also be used in producing the element hydrogen for the hydrogen fuel cell technology that can be used for cars.

EV cars are looking likely to be the greener option winners. In my humble opinion though, the way forward will be the “Hybrid” cars. having a mixture of an electric drive train and a conventional petrol engine. Starting the day off with a lead acid car battery.
