Since this is a completely new technology, I’ll describe briefly what this is about. To drive this car hydrogen will serve as a fuel. Hydrogen must be stored in special tanks at a pressure of 700 bar. in such circumstances, with tanks of 140 liters, costing 5.6 kg of hydrogen. Due to extremely high pressure tanks are made from multiple layers of special materials. Hydrogen is supplied to the fuel cell, where in the chemical reaction with oxygen produces steam and energy, which serves to drive the car. Therefore, there is no pollution. Already today there are technologies for easy production of hydrogen – with process of electrolysis of seawater. For electrolysis we need electricity, so we can easily get solar panels that produce electricity directly from the sun radiation. So, today it is possible to produce complete energy to drive the car by using renewable energy sources. Hyundai is planning to sell more than 10,000 units in the next few months. What could eventually makes difficult for new users of cars with fuel cell is small diffusion of fuel stations pump with the hydrogen. However, when this technology received in popularity, there will be more of these stationscells.
