WEBFI-TECH-IT HAPPENED! Tesla FINALLY Reveals New Hydrogen Car!



f you ask anyone what the future of cars looks like, they’ll most likely say
electric, with Tesla at the forefront of the movement. But what if we told you
there’s another option that might be just as good, if not better, than battery-
electric vehicles? What if you could power cars with the universe’s most
abundant resource, and the only byproduct was water? They’re also more
likely to cause an upheaval in the auto industry than electric vehicles such as
Teslas. Hydrogen fuel cells have a lot of promise but Elon Musk calls these
hydrogen fuel cells “fool cells” and “mind-bogglingly stupid.” despite it
becoming a threat to Battery Electric Vehicles.
In today’s video, we’ll be talking about the new hydrogen Tesla and the
newly established fight for superiority between Hydrogen fuel and Battery
Electric Vehicles. So, stay tuned to the end of this video, you don’t want to
miss out on anything. Kindly subscribe and turn on the notification button if
you haven’t already done so. Let’s get started!
Let’s start with some definitions. The electric vehicles that most of us are
familiar with today, such as Teslas, are battery electric vehicles, or BEVs, and
the electric motor is powered by a battery that stores electricity while a
hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicle, or FCEV, such as Toyota’s Mirai, generates
electricity by combining hydrogen and oxygen, which then powers the car’s
electric motor.
Tesla controls more than half of the zero-emissions market in the United
States, but it only accounts for 2% of the total car market in the country.
Long recharging times, range anxiety, and cost are the primary reasons why
consumers do not switch to battery-electric vehicles. Vehicles that u
recharging, hydrogen vehicles have the upper hand over battery-electric
vehicles. A Tesla can charge from 30% to 50% in 15 minutes at a
supercharging station, but a full charge will take longer than an hour. Fuel-
cell vehicles do not need to be recharged. A hydrogen station, like any other
gas station today, can refuel the hydrogen tank in less than five minutes.
This is because FCEVs don’t store electricity as batteries do; instead, they
generate it on demand to power the motor.
In terms of range, hydrogen-powered vehicles appear to be on top once
more. The range of the three fuel-cell vehicles now on the road is 312, 360,
and 380 miles, respectively. The average range of an electric vehicle is less
than 250 miles. Even though some Tesla models have a range of over 300
miles, they are generally out of reach for ordinary car customers.
Fuel-cell vehicles will be the breakthrough for electric mobility, according to
78 percent of automotive executives. That isn’t to argue that fuel-cell
vehicles aren’t fraught with difficulties. More affordable FCEVs are required.
The manufacture of FCEVs is being increased by automakers. Toyota, for
example, has tenfold boosted its production capability in order to bring
Mirai’s price down. The lack of infrastructure is the true barrier for hydrogen
fuel cells. The bulk of hydrogen stations in the United States is in California,
where fuel-cell owners can access just over 40. A large network of hydrogen
stations is required for FCEVs to deliver the breakthrough that automotive
executives expect and this is currently being worked upon.
Tesla will be up against a strong fight if and when fuel-cell vehicles gain
traction. They’ll need to boost range while lowering recharge time and cost.
However, due to the law of diminishing returns, Teslas and other battery-
electric vehicles are limited. A larger battery is needed to extend the range.
The car will be heavier if the battery is larger. The added weight no longer
provides a greater range after a certain point. It’s simply a numbers game
when it comes to FCEVs. More hydrogen stations mean more automobiles,
and more cars mean more fuel-cell vehicles that are more affordable.
Tesla has a 60 percent share of the zero-emissions market in America.
However, this represents only 2% of the total US automobile market. When
we talk about the global automobile market, those numbers drop. The only
thing holding FCEVs back is infrastructure, and if hydrogen stations become
more common, Tesla may lose its monopoly on the zero-emissions vehicle
market. For a technology that is “mind-bogglingly stupid,” it has the potential
to become a serious competitor for the same customers that Tesla is
pursuing.
But as part of attempts to promote “green hydrogen.” a converted version of
the Tesla Model Y was recently displayed in Germany. Participants in the
experiment dubbed the crossover a “hyper hybrid”. Teslas are the most
popular electric vehicles in the world, therefore employing one to draw
attention to anything is helpful. However, it is exceedingly dubious to use the
Tesla name to promote hydrogen, one would think.

    You must look at cost for hydrogen and how hydrogen is produced

  • Black Mephistopheles on December 17, 2021

    Everyone likes to talk up hydrogen fuel cells; another option could be ammonia – easier to compress, cheaper and more available fuel sites, multiple ways to produce it, multiple ways to use it to make electricity… more options are better than fewer.

    01:30 Really! That is not what is widely reported.

  • Eddy Morra on December 17, 2021

    I think hydrogen could be a good thing

  • Jens Denk on December 17, 2021

    Ok, you say that long range EV's are out of reach of average car buyers. What does a Mirai cost?

  • jdnelms62 on December 17, 2021

    Fuel cell cars will never gain in popularity. Hydrogen is extremely difficult to store for long periods and fuel cell cars would no doubt be very complex, very expensive, and prone to all manner of mechanical problems. Electric cars are much simpler mechanically, and newer solid state battery developments will mean lower prices. Hydrogen might have a brighter future in heavy equipment, trucks and aviation, but for passenger cars, not so much.

  • Vera Kehrli on December 17, 2021

    Too expensive, nobody will buy it.

    What is the cost of hidrogen? How is It obtained?

  • Rodney Hartgrove on December 17, 2021

    Oh wow let's drive around to hydrogen bomb or somebody wanted to put off a hydrogen gas station they could blow the crap out of everything hydrogen is actually dangerous

  • Terry Lane on December 17, 2021

    Utilizing hydrogen as a fuel source is fraught with many problems. 20 years ago hydrogen made sense when battery technology was not up to snuff. Now with improvements in battery technology hydrogen is far less net energy efficient than conventional batteries and hydrogen cannot easily be generated at home for use in your car.

  • T. Hannibal Tiger on December 17, 2021

    Hydrogen is 150 times worse for our ozone layer. It also takes 6 gallons of water to make 2 gallons of hydrogen. We already have water shortages in our planet. We don't need hydrogen cars. It's worse than gasoline on our planet.

  • Donald Boughton on December 17, 2021

    Where is the hydrogen going to come from? Blue Hydrogen will be produced from methane resulting in carbon emissions. Green Hydrogen is produced by using electricity. Using current technology only thirty percent of the energy is recovered from the hydrogen. At the moment there is 60% efficient electrolysis in the labs which has yet to be put on the market. From an efficiency point of view it would be better to use the electricity to charge the car batteries directly rather than produce hydrogen.

  • Jens Denk on December 17, 2021

    Hydrogen is pushed by governments because they can control it from start to finish. How would they control how much you can charge your car from your solar system, and how would they get revenue from that? Have you looked at the complexity of the FCEV vs an EV? How much would an FCEV technician cost per hour vs an EV technician? Why does hydrogen cost 4 times as much per km as electricity? Because converting electricity to hydrogen, compressing, transporting, storing and then generating electricity out of it, is less than 25% as efficient as charging and discharging a battery. Refilling a Hydrogen car has always taken about 5 minutes. EV's on the other hand used to take hours to charge. In the last 2 years alone the charging times have been reduced by about 50%. Some new EV manufacturers are claiming 8 minutes to 90%, and estimates are that in the next year this will again be reduced as LiFePO and solid state battery tech improves. This while battery and charging safety improves.
    Making hydrogen refills faster would necessitate changes to all the hydrogen infrastructure and all hydrogen vehicles while risking losses in safety. IMO

    Charge from home

  • Ed Valencia on December 17, 2021

    Finally! Awesome! mr Toyota was right, it will work with Tesla drive train, His capacitor company might help too, Maybe he could develop a small portable hydrogen turbine generator/charger too

  • james musco on December 17, 2021

    I like hydrogen

  • tucsonor on December 17, 2021

    So, now I need to invest into a H2 production device in order to fill the tank at home? Or do I miss something here? Belive I stick to the EV and charge at home to 100%, and have a lead of up to 500km unless visit a "h2station" I have noe other need for to spend time to get to, stay at and spend time to get home from again. What a waste. No thanks, no place for a h2 tank at home for me, some other can spend their time and pay for the energy losses in the chain on converting electricity to h2, transport it, and the have losses in using it. Total waste. beside of that, as an engineer, it is a fascinating technology, I have to admit to that.

  • Kevin Hirst on December 17, 2021

    … what?! No.. they better fork the money for this and piss off our Government because they think the Tanks can be weaponizied and I hate Democrat's. This is the future. Hydrogen is faster and has better range.

  • jeff mann on December 17, 2021

    The biggest problem with hydrogen is intelligence. I always charge my EV at HOME. Until they make a hydrogen separator for home use the technology is worthless. I charge my EV in 15 seconds. 10 seconds to plug it in and 5 seconds to unplug it. Would I drive an additional 5 miles each way to fill a hydrogen car? No! The other issue is currently hydrogen comes from oil wells and costs about 4 times the price of gasoline per mile driven. Liquid hydrogen boils off and by letting your car sit at home, it is still using hydrogen. Also garages are popular in the North where temperatures sometimes go below -20 degrees F. The hydrogen boil off would require all cars to remain outside. The technology has promise but it lacks the intelligence Tesla had to make it viable.

  • Keely Evans on December 17, 2021

    See I wanted to make the hydrogen fuel-cell powered houses cars are like trailer houses they depreciate quickly where is my industrial complex?

  • Chris Braid on December 17, 2021

    If hydrogen increases range at reasonable cost without ruining the car I’m for letting them create their niche. It’s not about dominance as much as replacing the less clean running vehicles with much cleaner running vehicles … there is as much room in the future for differing technologies as there has been in the past . Technological development has never done away other alternatives to the best technologies but it has stratified them usually in price and desirability options . Roll on the new developments, something better than Hydrogen power may just be around the corner ….

  • Keely Evans on December 17, 2021

    They're so funny you're all selling shares and they're like Oh no you're going to lose shares

  • Chris Quail on December 17, 2021

    Distribution in America could be a problem. In Europe, there is a large infrastructure of gas pipelines supplying industrial and domestic consumers. There are plans to convert these consumers to hydrogen, replacing natural gas.
    It wouldn't be difficult to install hydrogen fueling stations anywhere close to the existing pipelines.
    You can buy and have installed "Hydrogen Ready" domestic heating boilers in the UK already.

    JCB construction vehicle makes sense. You got people doing physical work and machines blowing diesel exhaust in your face.

  • eric vynckier on December 17, 2021

    Hydrogen storage is a pain in the ass. When that issue get resolved, no doubt there will be a place for this form of energy generation.
