Toyota say it's roughly £50 to fill up but you get free fuel when you lease a Mirai.
£10/kg is the wholesale cost that ITM has sold hydrogen to many entities recently. However if you go back to their older PR they should have been cheaper by now. I have some links to that in the presentation I made earlier this year.Yeah, £10/kilo is on par with what I've seen referenced elsewhere. It's frustratingly difficult to find any solid answers about many aspects of HFCVs, though, fuel price being a good example of something you'd think would be widely available.
Another is repressurising speed of the fuelling system after someone else has used it. It's discussed on here fairly regularly but I can't find a single good reference. Then again, given the incredible unlikelihood of several fuel cell vehicles refuelling consecutively right now, that's maybe not so surprising..
Particularly telling is just how far you can read through that article thinking it's a relatively contemporary piece before feeling compelled to scroll back and check the date.
I’m pretty sure that’s not the case.There are huge storage/delivery pressures involved ( I've seen 10,000 p.s.i. mentioned) so perhaps anyone using the equipment may need to be H & S certified?
You can read 5 articles behind the economist paywall by just registering. Here's the numbers:I see a pay wall, probably due to age (of the article, not mine!!... ). Can anyone pin up the numbers it says?
Today it's still over $100 per kw and DoE targets $30 per kw for 2025the Oak Ridge study assumes it will be possible to make fuel-cell vehicle systems in quantity at a cost of $45 per kilowatt of output by 2010, and $30 per kilowatt by 2015.
This is ambitious. Although fuel-cell costs have dropped by 65% since 2002, according to the CaFCP, today's fuel cells cost around $107 per kilowatt.
2017 there were ~2000 FCEVs on roads. Shell estimates 2 million FCEVs sales per year at 2030.Yet for advocates of fuel-cell cars, hope springs eternal. The CaFCP sees tens of thousands of fuel-cell vehicles on the road by 2017; Shell predicts that mass roll-out of fuel-cell vehicles is “absolutely achievable” by 2020
Yes, you'd need a larger fuel cell to deal with peak power and a larger battery as the fuel cell takes time to ramp up.I wonder if there are technical limitations that would compromise something more sexy and halo-effect, like a sports car.
