Tesla EV Revolution Is Temporary, As Confirmed By Honda Clarity

By  | 

We can commend Tesla for being that catalyst to force the automotive market into electrification even though the quality of their production vehicles is still questionable.

The massive push for EVs has put Tesla on the limelight and it has led many to think that electric vehicles are truly the future of the industry.

Well, this is with the exception of Toyota, Honda and a few others because they still believe that pure EVs are only temporary. To these carmakers, the real replacement for fuel is hydrogen.

Honda and Toyota have pledged to roll out more hydrogen-powered FCEVs at the start of 2020 after found success with the Clarity and the Mirai respectively. Just yesterday, the stale state of FCEV received a boost after the Clarity received the 2018 Green Car of the Year by Green Car Journal.

The award serves as an indication that fuel-cell technology that is powered by hydrogen offers greater efficiency than pure electric powertrain and the Clarity is best at it.

    Total Global Fuel Cell vehicle cells will barely top 6k by Dec 31,2017.

    Tesla has sold 275k vehicles.

    That is not success for Fuel Cells. Hydrogen Fuel cells are not economically feasable. Maybe the Japanese government will keep massive subsidies going for a few more decades but they will never be more than .1% of sales anywhere else.

    Plug-in electric vehicle sales are over 1% in the USA and 4.5% in California.
