Top 7 New Hydrogen Vehicles Available in 2021 – 2022

Are hydrogen cars greener than electric cars? Well, hydrogen has long been touted as the future for passenger cars. In this video, we will show you the top seven hydrogen fuel vehicles, which run on pressurized hydrogen and produce zero carbon emissions:

0:00 Top hydrogen fuel cell vehicles

0:21 Mercedes Benz GLC F-Cell
Mercedes Benz seems to be the oldest producer of fuel cell electric vehicles. Its first-generation F-cell was introduced back in 2002 and had a range of 100 miles, with a top speed of 82 mph. It was based on the Mercedes-Benz A-class series that gradually and gave way to the B-class with a more powerful F-cell electric engine rated at 100 kW, with a range of about 250 miles. It could have higher specs because the B-Class has bigger space for accommodating tanks of compressed hydrogen and gradual technological advances.

1:48 Hyundai Nexo
The hydrogen fuel cell-powered Nexo is a worthy SUV that might well suit almost all of your needs. The beauty and power of Hyundai Nexo combine for your driving pleasure being aided by a 95-kilowatt fuel cell stack and 40-kilowatt-hour battery pack. Those power the electric motor capable of generating 161 horsepower alongside with 291 pound-feet of torque.

3:14 BMW i Hydrogen Next
BMW is collaborating with Toyota to bring this i Hydrogen Next to the pilot production phase in 2022. It is a Fuel cell electric SUV presently undergoing rigorous road tests. 2025 will see its series production, that is, if infrastructure and market conditions are right. BMW has already tested the car’s various systems- the hydrogen storage tank, battery pack, and electric motors separately, but this is the first time the drivetrain has been evaluated in its entirety under real-world conditions.

4:49 Honda Clarity Fuel Cell
In the Clarity Fuel Cell, the fuel cell assembly turns the Hydrogen into electricity, which powers an electric motor producing 174 hp and 221 lb-ft, and 360 miles of range. It speeds up to 100km/h in 9 seconds. There are two Hydrogen pressure tanks behind and under the rear seat of the Honda that hold 5.0 kg of Hydrogen for a range of 650 km. Just as it discontinued the E.V. variant of the Clarity, Honda is also halting the Fuel cell Clarity production. The show will end by August 2021. The company will ensure the Clarity Fuel Cell is still available for lease through 2022, and Honda will continue to support its Clarity customers in the marketplace. So long, Clarity.

5:41 Hyundai ix35 Fuel Cell
Hyundai implemented its vision of a safe, efficient future with a serial production in 2013 of the ix35 Fuel Cell. It won Hyundai’s ‘Car of the Future’ Award at the 2013 Brussels Motor Show. As with all fuel-cell vehicles, the Hyundai ix35 Fuel Cell produces zero emissions with an electric motor that generates a power output of 100 kW. It accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in 12.5 seconds and achieves top speeds of 160 km/h. The ix35 Fuel Cell utilizes 0.95kg of Hydrogen for 62 miles and has a maximum gas tank capacity of 5.64kg. The front wheels are driven by a 65kW – equivalent to 87.2bhp – electric motor through a single-speed reducer gear. It comes fitted with a 24kW battery developed by L.G. Chemicals; it functions primarily to assist the fuel cell stack when high power demand is at its greatest.

7:33 Toyota Mirai
Mirai is a Japanese word for the future; the company has chosen this name to inform us that they are certainly set for the future. Like other Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles, the Toyota Mirai is powered by a fuel cell that generates electricity for its onboard electric motor by producing a chemical reaction. The Vehicle’s tailpipe expels water vapour, and unlike battery-powered electric vehicles, the Mirai can be fueled with a tank of Hydrogen in a few minutes. The 2021 Mirai boasts an extreme body design upgrade that sports the looks of a Lexus. It has a fuel cell Powertrain with rear-wheel drive. This vehicle can cover 402 miles on a tank of Hydrogen. The Fuel cell electric powertrain converts Hydrogen to electricity to power the electric motor. It produces 182 horsepower and sends power to the rear wheels via a one-speed direct-drive transmission. It reaches 60mph in 9.1 seconds.

9:00 Hyperion XP-1 Hypercar
After spending 10years in the works, the XP-1 is ready to debut in 2022, with some mind-blowing specs. The Hyperion XP-1 is said to have a 2.2-second zero-to-60-mph time and a 221-mph top speed. It is built on a carbon titanium monocoque chassis with a curb weight of fewer than 2275 pounds and also offers 1000-plus miles of range before needing a refuel. The XP-1 offers more than 1000 miles of range, even up to 1016 miles, at a combination of 55 percent city and 45 percent highway driving. Hyperion plans to manufacture 300 units of the XP-1s. It will have an all-wheel drive, with a three-speed transmission and ultracapacitors to buffer the output of the fuel cell.
