What are Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles?
Fuel cell electric vehicles use hydrogen and oxygen to create electricity which is in turn used to power the vehicle's motor. Unlike electric vehicles where the electricity is drawn from a battery alone, the hydrogen powered fuel cell provides the needed electricity. A fuel cell is also 2 to 3 times more efficient than conventional gasoline internal combustion engines and emit only water vapor and warm air.
