Motor Show: hydrogen-powered cars star on the catwalk

[vc_row njt-role=”people-in-the-roles” njt-role-user-roles=”administrator,editor,author,armember”][vc_column][vc_column_text]

The Motor Show starts this Monday with a focus on hydrogen-powered cars.  Focus on these new, ambitious and innovative models.

 

While a fuel crisis affects the capital, the Motor Show opens its doors after an absence of four years. Connoisseurs and professionals of the sector discover all the models of tomorrow. Between shortage, sharp increase of fuel and pollution, hydrogen is one of the solutions of tomorrow.

 

Many innovations are taking place in this field. Among the new models presented, the French market dominates and signs the cars of tomorrow or the future.

 

The mythical Alpine from Renault is brought up to date, in a hydrogen version, nicknamed Alpenglow. Its engine emits very little water vapor and its futuristic design makes it look like something out of a science fiction movie or cartoon.

 

There’s also Hopium, a sleek, luxurious sedan with no doors that Batman could quickly adopt as his new batmobile. It opens automatically when approached and runs on a fuel cell.

 

An SUV, presented by the new French brand NamX, is distinguished by a system of removable hydrogen capsules that provide a range of 800 km. They can be changed easily and anywhere.

 

Hydrogen, the engine of tomorrow

 

Hydrogen is a revolutionary advance in the world of automobiles. Between supporters and skeptics, the debate persists. This innovation could solve certain problems linked to electric cars: autonomy and recharging. With hydrogen, you don’t have to plug in your car to recharge it: you just have to fill up the tank, a bit like filling up with gasoline.

 

Nevertheless, there are still many technological challenges to overcome. Hydrogen is in itself a clean energy (a very light gas), but its production method is still very polluting. Indeed, it still uses 95% of fossil fuels and generates a lot of CO2. While the refueling stations are today heavier to install than the simple terminals for the electric.

 

This progress also has a cost. It is still concentrated on luxury models with prices ranging from 80,000 to 100,000 euros. These are the Rolex of the “green” car. But manufacturers are also working on models that are more accessible to all, such as utility vehicles and vans, which were also presented at the Paris Motor Show. There is also talk of cabs, buses and, surprisingly, bicycles.

 

With a greater autonomy and a fast recharge, hydrogen cars are making a place for themselves on the automotive market and are overshadowing electric cars. Although some people are already using them, the purchase price remains high and there are only 60 hydrogen stations in France for the moment, half of which are reserved for professionals.
