A few weeks ago Wheelhouse made an episode about how Hydrogen cars were supposed to be the future of automobiles. And in that episode Nolan made a pretty good economic argument for why they failed. An argument that everyone’s favorite billionaire, Elon Musket, might agree with. But like all things car related, I get curious about the engineering side of things. Outside of politics, why couldn’t the car of the future be hydrogen powered? Well today on B2B we’re gonna take a look at hydrogen-fueled tech, and explain why Elon Musk might just be wrong about hydrogen cars.

Hydrogen cars probably exist because the auto industry didn't anticipate rapidly falling battery and solar pv costs. So instead of the hydrogen economy we get the hydrogen agronomy.

Pound for pound, I think it will take about 15 years for batteries to have the same power density as hydrogen... More immediately, hydrogen fuel cell technology can be used immediately and really would be best for heavy duty purposes like big rigs, aircraft, Earth moving equipment, whole house generator, etc...

There is an awesome solution to the lacking infrastructure: The Fraunhofer Institute for Material Science, recently published a Magnesium based paste to store hydrogen for multiple years, it is an easily transportable liquid and has a similar energy density to gasoline. The Magnesium can be reused. www.ifam.fraunhofer.de/de/Institutsprofil/Standorte/Dresden/Wasserstofftechnologie/hydrolyse.html www.fraunhofer.de/de/presse/presseinformationen/2021/februar-2021/wasserstoffantriebe-fuer-e-scooter-und-co.html

I mean they laughed at Elon when he was creating electrical cars so…
J.s. Pred dnevom
its a competitor to electric cars, of course elon is gonna crap all over it. the elon fanboys keep forgetting that elon has to promote his companies. look at lidar, elon been crapping over that for a decade, but now most of the car companies are using lidar or lidar maps for self driving
Engineering the weird guy
All that besides the point of this video however, as Elon was emphatically correct about hydrogen. It’s stupid. I can explain all the reason why if you don’t believe me.
Engineering the weird guy
Meanwhile Tesla’s are fast approaching self driving using $3 cameras which isn’t geofenced and restricted to mapped areas and can recognise street signs such as roadwork signs and changed speed limited and can recognise repainted road lines or traffic cones, instead of a $2,500 Lidar set up that has to be restricted to already mapped areas which take several people several hundred rounds of driving on company pay to map an small area because lidar can’t read street signs, make out road lines or street cones.

ELON MUSK is positioned for hydrogen cars. All he needs to fo is add the fuel celss instead of batteries.
Engineering the weird guy
Well you’d actually need to keep half the batteries, add fuel cell and add fuel storage and add additional coolant systems then redesign the chassis to protect the fuel tanks against explosion and to be corrosive resistant to continuous exposure to water vapour.

TOYOTA Boyz Pred dnevom
EV cars are produced by factories ran by fossil fuels, not 100% renewable energy like they claim. They’re destroying wild life in desserts and forests to build these factories. EV production uses more fossil fuels than fkn gasoline itself! Other rare minerals are consumed in this process just to produce low to no em emission vehicles but at the expense of destroying the planet even more.

Why can't we mix hydrogen car and ev. Like a hybrid.
Franklin Araujo
Franklin Araujo Pred 2 dnevi
I think battery-powered electric cars need fewer parts than a hydrogen car. If you are going to produce hydrogen you need energy that usually comes from fossil fuel and even if it is renewable you will need a network just for the production of hydrogen which would make the fuel cost high (but could change over time). The storage and transport of hydrogen is another problem as it is highly explosive and requires noble metals. Now production is made from hydrocarbons (methane) and petroleum derivatives.
Engineering the weird guy
Battery electric cars *do* have fewer parts than hydrogen cars.

He missed an important part. Electrolysis of water is very energy inefficient process with very high electricity requirements. We would rather use electricity to directly charge the batteries.
Demi404 Pred 3 dnevi
Instead of producing electricity with the hydrogen why not burn it.
Engineering the weird guy
Less efficient. Less performance and even less lifespan
Joshua Schofield
Joshua Schofield Pred 4 dnevi
Use electricity to power your car, or use electricity to create hydrogen that is converted back to electricity via an onboard system that then powers your car...yeah the choice is simple. Hydrogen cars are supported by companies that want to distribute hydrogen. Simple physics people. Give up the stupid hydrogen car arguments.

Oscar Garcia Pred 4 dnevi
1 important thing to remember is you can store Hydrogen as a solid too using a metal complex. Also you don't need water to get hydrogen, you can fish it out of other substances too
pheoix Pred 4 dnevi
Another advantage is that is way ahead in terms of energy storage. Batteries degrade over time. Hydrogen can be stores endlessly with no energy loss. It can solve storage for renewable energy. Fuel cells are also getting smaller and more compact. Also I always thought as ev to be a stepping stone to hydrogen Evs.
Engineering the weird guy
Well no actually. While batteries do degrade over time, storing Energy as hydrogen has two fundamental drawbacks. 1.) it’s inefficient, you lose around 60% of the energy by storing it as hydrogen. Producing hydrogen has a 30% loss, and converting it back into electricity has a 40% loss. You’d have to store energy in a battery for decades before it becomes worthwhile to store it as hydrogen. And that’s also ignoring losses from liquefying, compressing and transport of hydrogen. 2.) you can’t actually contain hydrogen. Hydrogen atoms are so small that they can leak through solid metal. You can design special tanks out of exotic materials to mitigate this but you can’t stop it as the atoms are too small. Additionally in the process of hydrogen interacting with/leaking through metal. It embrittles it. Meaning the longer you store it, the weaker it gets until it fails.

Zane Courtney Pred 5 dnevi
It's more likely to kick out gasoline than EV's. Just replace the gas at existing stations with hydrogen and the infrastructure problem mostly solves itself. It just comes down to startup cost at the moment.
Engineering the weird guy
Hydrogen cannot use existing infrastructure. The nearest you're going to get is LPG infrastructure. However here is why that cant work. 1.) Hydrogen atoms are so small that they can leak through solid metal. not only would the containment and hoses for LPG not be suitable for this but neither would the gaskets and seals. It would leak like a pasta strainer, which is significant for a highly explosive gas with no smell. not only that but when it does leak through metal it embrittles it. significantly weakening the metal. 2.) Liquid Hydrogen needs to be stored at over 32 times the pressure of LPG. This means that the containment vessels, even if they were made of a hydrogen suitable material would not be suitable for hydrogen as it would not be able to contain the pressures required. 3.) Hydrogen has a very low inversion temperature. The inversion temperature is the temperature at which a gas goes from super cooling as its decompressed to superheating. that means whilst LPG infrastructure is designed to handle decreasing temperatures as the gas is transported or drained. Hydrogen heat up the infrastructure which means they are fundamentally incompatible. All this means is that you would have to build and entire hydrogen infrastructure *from scratch.* To install hydrogen at an existing fuel station you would need to bury it, not just install new hoses or pumps. You need to buy hydrogen because of how explosive it is. This means you would have to demolish the existing fuel station and re-build it from the ground up.... for every fuel station. meanwhile you can easily add a super charger or destination charger at any location which has electricity for a fraction of the cost, time, effort. Including any fuel station.
Aleko117 Pred 5 dnevi
7:13 lmfao
FZMello Pred 5 dnevi
Aside from the infrastructure issue is that the hydrogen fuel cells take up a lot of space in the car and would outweigh the engine and gas tank they're trying to supplant. Then there's the cost. Hydrogen is rather expensive and hard to find commercially. Not to mention, the catalytic units will have to be replaced every so often, just like a catalytic converter, but at even greater cost. Next issue is that, in case of an accident, your car stands a very good chance of becoming the Hindenburg. Hydrogen burns very hot and very fast, and iirc, fire in the fuel cells can release some very toxic smoke, fumes and vapors from the materials involved. Lastly, I think he enjoyed dressing up as a girl just a little too much.
quintespeed Pred 5 dnevi
If it’s as expensive as gasoline now, what’s the point? Who can fill up their hydrogen car at home? They better step it up or “Elon” will leave ’em in the dust.

Xn Chen
Xn Chen Pred 5 dnevi
The lack of power for any electrical motor is usually caused by battery's internal resistance. With hydrogen ev, the resistance is created by the slow moving rate of H ions. But capacitor don't have internal resistance. Why didn't they hook up a capacitor in parallel to the hydrogen cells, so that it does the fast discharge during acceleration and accumulates energy during low speed and even speed conditions?
Syliss Pred 5 dnevi
Are these cars going to have an exhaust spitting water?
Leon Laubscher
Leon Laubscher Pred 5 dnevi
This video seriously missed the mark. No comparison of costs? No mention of the inefficiency of using electricity to produce hydrogen then using that hydrogen to generate electricity to run the car...vs just using electricity straight to run a car. The arguments used against EV's, like limited range, charging times, charging infrastructure, are fast becoming non-issues as the tech matures. H2 has potential in long-range trucking, shipping, etc. but it's safe to say EV's have won the passenger vehicle battle. I'm siding with Elon on this one and I'm far from being his biggest fan.

I worked at in a warehouse that used Hydrogen Fuel Cells to power forklifts. The refueling was quick and easy but boy did those things break down an awful lot.

you lose energy making h2, just to make electricity... to charge a small battery. lol its an wasteful ev. I work with h2 powered equipment. they are junk and have been scrapped at the neighboring facility. so much waste to avoid a bigger battery, with battery swaps its as quick as fueling. h2 fuel stations often have issues same with the cells themselves. if I get through a shift without having a code set off its a miracle!

Hydrogen been touted as the solution, battery tech came and turned it into a afterthought. If someone wanted hydrogen to happen, it would have happened. It’s bunk tech, losses and changes are too much. Elon’s right up until now. Future might tell otherwise but all legacy makers are following Tesla’s lead with batteries, not Toyota’s with fuel cells.
CHE Guevara
CHE Guevara Pred 6 dnevi
Makes no sense, the energy you need to obtain the Hydrogen is way to high, plus then you carry around all that equipment in form of a fuel cell, it is not efficient, electric cars are much more simple, less parts, it is basically a battery and motors, simple to maintain and more reliable. If anything if you have a cheap way to obtain Hydrogen, then it may make sense to put a big fuel cell at the pump, then produce electricity that can charge the cars.

So I googled "what makes more co2, a car or a cow" and I got this answer "It's been estimated that methane gas from cows is 23 times more damaging to the climate than the carbon dioxide from cars." So why dfaq are you trying to fix cars, Don't just ignore the real problem ffs.
lawnmowerdude Pred 4 dnevi
Firstly this answer you found should be looked into further to determine it accuracy. Secondly, cars and cows are both issues and there are enough people on the planet to work on both problems at the same time. Plus you’re watching a car channel and not a farming channel so that’s why they are not talking about cows. A immediate solution would be to drive stinky cars less and east less tasty meat but we both know that’s not going to happen.

We just need porche to finish the synthetic fuel that they are creating for ICE platforms. It seems impervious to me to completely wipe out all vehicles that have been made since the beginning of time that use ice technology and try and replace it with something that you don't even know is going to last forever and then on top of that all of the recalls. We need to think smarter not harder. Electric cars only steal from the planet. They do not help it.
Honda Land

@Engineering the weird guy synthetic lubricants exist but will take out oil companies. Different fuels that work in an ICE engine that dont actually leave carbon behind have been made but again will kill industries. Why do you think car manufacturers are going the battery route. It makes money. Just like cancer does. If you dont understand what it takes to make the batteries and the many bolts that were recalled then look into it. Electric cars will not last. No where near the time an ICE vehicle will. Original ICE engines are still on the road doing their job. Replacing the lube and fuel is not hard. Its only frowned upon. You know. Like chemo therapy. But mary janes illegal..

You think ice cars last forever? You also think fuel reserves are also going to last forever? And what recalls? Steal from the earth? How? For materials they use to manufacture the battery?

Goldenoodles Pred 7 dnevi
The problem with hydrogen is that it is less efficient than just straight up electric cars. If you use the solar panels to make electricity to do electrolysis to get hydrogen, then make that hydrogen go back to electricity, which then goes to batteries / motors. If you go through that process can't you literally just use that electricity to literally just charge the battery and then power the motors. Bc you loose energy everytime you change the medium the energy is held in. You loose some energy to make the hydrogen then to make it back you also loose some, due to heat and u know shits not 100% efficient (nothing is) and if it goes to a battery that looses some energy as battery's aren't perfect just to go to to motors.

Hydrogen fuel cell is just another form of battery... I would tomorrow go out to a car dealership and buy a hydrogen combustion engine powered car even if it was crap because I would want to help push that technology. But hydrogen fuel cell runs the same way as an ev and in my eyes it's not viable I still can't see ev cars working
Engineering the weird guy
what is so flawed about using an electric motor, even with hydrogen. When using a fuel cell electric on hydrogen would get better range, performance, service life and operating costs than if you had hydrogen combustion?
Engineering the weird guy
a hydrogen combustion engine has worse performance and service life than a regular combustion engine. It is also only around 20% efficient. a fuel cell system is closer to 60% efficient, meaning you'd get significantly more range from the same tank of hydrogen. and with the cost of hydrogen it becomes significantly less expensive with a fuel cell electric. But if you're going to go electric on that front anyways, Batteries hold all the advantages over hydrogen in the personal domestic vehicle market.

6:56 You seem fail to notice that oil IS a source of energy, but hydrogen is NOT. If you pump oil you get much more energy from it than you consume during pumping. But at hydrogen the situation is the OPPOSITE: you must put 3 to 4 times MORE energy making hydrogen than you get from it! BIG DIFFERENCE! Hydrogen can consume 3 to 4 times MORE energy than electric car and that is asociated with very high fuel cost for hydrogen car. Hydrogen cars makes no sense.
