Fuel cell vehicles (FCVs) are not the cars of the future, they are the cars of today. These innovative, zero emission cars can travel 300 to 400 miles per tank and refuel in just three to five minutes.

ZERO EMISSIONS.

Thanks to hydrogen, the only emission from an FCV's tailpipe is water. That’s far better for the environment than the carbon emissions pumping out of traditional gasoline vehicles.

FCVs have the potential to greatly reduce greenhouse gas emissions and efforts are already underway to expand hydrogen generation. In fact, California has a 33% renewable hydrogen mandate for vehicle fueling.

ZERO COMPROMISE.

FCVs have the benefits of standard vehicles, and then some.

They have an extended drive range of 300-400 miles per tank and a fill up time of just 3-5 minutes, and it doesn't stop there. FCVs are extremely reliable and require little maintenance, while also offering the quiet operation and high torque of battery electric cars.

UNYIELDING SAFETY STANDARDS.

FCVs and hydrogen fuel are as safe, if not safer, than traditional gasoline vehicles.

For more than 50 years, hydrogen has been safely produced, stored, transported, and used in the American industrial sector. Manufacturers of these revolutionary vehicles also made it a priority to develop and test the carbonfiber hydrogen tanks found within FCVs, all of which have withstood significant crash, fire, and ballistic testing. Because of these high safety standards, FCVs were able to meet the very strict National Highway Safety Transportation Administration’s (NHTSA) safety and quality regulations.

THE NEED FOR INFRASTRUCTURE INVESTMENT.

Fuel cell vehicles and hydrogen fuel are bringing innovation to the road. But in order to foster a new clean economy and economic growth, we need to build the infrastructure that supports these vehicles.

When we start supporting the construction of hydrogen fueling stations, as well as a supply chain of producing, delivering, and storing hydrogen, the effects will be felt. New jobs will pop up across the hydrogen industry along with vibrant communities committed to creating a better environment.

DRIVING ENERGY INDEPENDENCE.

When fuel cell vehicles and hydrogen fuel join forces, the result is an economy full of innovation and growth.

Building the infrastructure that supports bringing these cars to market – such as producing, delivering, and storing hydrogen and constructing hydrogen fueling stations – will spur a positive movement. One that decreases our dependency on foreign oil.
