BMW's Strategy & Commitment
BMW is strongly committed to hydrogen fuel cell technology as an alternative to gas powered car and electric vehicles. There are two key reasons: hydrogen powered cars are zero emissions and require zero charge times. In fact, BMW has unveiled images of the powertrain for its BMW i Hydrogen NEXT.
Future of Hydrogen Fuel Cell Technology
The future of hydrogen fuel cell technology is big but the infrastructure to sustain it needs to be in place for a big takeoff. Here are BMW's perspectives on what is needed to make this zero emissions technology go mass market:
- Production of sufficient quantities of hydrogen for hydrogen fuel cells at a competitive price using GREEN electricity
- Hydrogen fuel cell tech starting in long distance, heavy duty transport that can't be electrified
- Extensive networks of hydrogen fueling stations in Europe to start.
