Did you know that there are now several models of fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) operating on hydrogen fuel available in California? These cars have similar range and fueling operations as gasoline cars, but emit only water, making them true zero-emission vehicles (ZEVs). ZEVs, which also include battery electric vehicles, are essential to ensuring California improves air quality while reducing the impacts of the climate crisis to protect human health and the economy.
There are now over 1,000 FCEVs and 26 hydrogen stations operating in California, with 50 expected to be operational by the end of 2017. The State currently requires 33% of hydrogen fuel come from renewable sources, such as solar or wind electrolysis.
