Hydrogen-Powered vehicles are here: China’s production line starts operation.

  • China announces its first hydrogen-powered vehicles production line.
  • This is to help it achieve its “dual carbon” goal.
  • The production line was completed in just six months by a company called Just Power.

The world’s largest automobile companies are gradually moving to the use of cleaner energies for their brands. Electrical vehicles are ushering us into the new age of cleaner energy. To add to the list of cleaner energy vehicles are hydrogen-powered cars and it comes as no surprise that China will be introducing us to the age of hydrogen-powered cars.

China has started operating its hydrogen-powered vehicle production plant situated in South China’s Guangdong Province. The move is to ensure that the country achieves its “dual carbon” goal by targeting the green development of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area.

The production line which is the first of its kind is located in an industrial park in the Chancheng district. They are specialised in the production of power systems for industrial vehicles. The announcement was made at a press conference which was hosted by the China Energy Research Society and local governments.

The production line assembled in just six months will be producing tour cars, tractors, forklifts, and mobile hydrogen batteries as showcased on Saturday.

China is one of the leading hydrogen producers with an output of about 33 million tons generating revenue of about 20 million yuan ($2.84 million). The country sees hydrogen energy as a significant part of its energy mix.

China’s aim is to achieve carbon neutrality by 2060.

Hydrogen-Powered Vehicles.

hydrogen vehicle is a vehicle that uses hydrogen fuel for motive power. Hydrogen vehicles include hydrogen-fueled space rockets, as well as ships and aircraft. Power is generated by converting the chemical energy of hydrogen to mechanical energy, either by reacting hydrogen with oxygen in a fuel cell to power electric motors or, less commonly, by burning hydrogen in an internal combustion engine.

As of 2021, there are two models of hydrogen cars publicly available in select markets: the Toyota Mirai (2014–), which is the world’s first mass-produced dedicated fuel cell electric vehicle (FCEV), and the Hyundai Nexo (2018–).
