According to research by NPROXX, the number of fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) on the market is set to rise exponentially in the coming years, as the benefits of hydrogen-powered vehicles for personal use continue to become more apparent.
NPROXX designs, develops and manufactures Type 4 pressure vessels for the storage of hydrogen under high pressure.
The Netherlands-based company highlighted that there are currently just six FCEV models in production, including the Hyundai Nexo, Toyota Mirai and Honda Clarity.
But based on market research by NPROXX, the Netherlands-based company believes that number will rise to 31 separate car models on the market by 2025, with all the big names of the motoring world rushing to develop new models or adapt existing favourites to run on hybrid of hydrogen fuel cell power and electricity.
As NPROXX explained, “Hydrogen as a fuel is well suited to long distances, and these new models are expected to boast ranges that exceed their oil-fuelled predecessors.”
“As a result, the range of models being developed stretches from new mid-range saloons being developed by the likes of Toyota, Honda and Mercedes to hydrogen fuelled adaptations of existing SUV models from the likes of BMW and Audi.”
NPROXX said it is currently working with several leading automotive manufacturers to design and develop hydrogen storage solutions that can be integrated into the designs of new and adapted passenger vehicles.
