The era of electrification continues to grow rapidly, but it is possible that some manufacturers will continue to develop hydrogen-powered models.
For example, Volkswagen is working on a reversed hydrogen-powered car that can travel 1,242 miles on a single tank.
Volkswagen’s creation of hydrogen cars is contained in an existing report, in which Autocar reports the German automaker has filed for a patent registration for a hydrogen fuel cell and a hydrogen vehicle that can be sold alongside existing electric cars such as the ID.4 but is also capable of traveling long distances without refuel.
Interestingly, the patent that was filed with Krafwerk Tubes is considered to provide a lower price than some other manufacturers, and is considered to be important for the mass production of hydrogen fuel cells.
Of course, this positive development can lead Volkswagen to become one of the players that cannot be underestimated, and can become a leader.
Sascha Kuhn, founder of Kraftwerk Tubes, said that there were benefits in this collaboration. This is because it can be produced much cheaper than others because it uses polymers that do not require platinum.
“Regardless of the manufacturer, our target is that our technology should be launched in serial vehicles by 2026. We are talking about 10,000 vehicles, spread across several car manufacturers,” he explained.
The arrival of Volkswagen’s affordable hydrogen vehicles with a range of over 1,200 miles will transform the industry and position the brand as a major leader.
However, Volkswagen will remain focused on electric vehicles and will soon introduce ID Buzz and Aero to the American market, and the presence of hydrogen cars is also not explained in detail.
