In the battle between electric cars and fuel-cell vehicles, we currently have a clear winner

Despite boasting several advantages, including refuelling time and overall efficiency, hydrogen fuel cell vehicles (FCVs) are loosing badly to battery-powered electric vehicles, (BEVs) a study by the University of Michigan found. The study, authored by Brandon Schoettle and Michael Sivak of the university’s Transportation Research Institute, concluded that limited infrastructure is likely the largest contributor to the slow pace of growth for FCVs.The research also cites a previous study that placed the cost of construction for a hydrogen refuelling station at several times what a traditional gasoline station can cost. But if that infrastructure is in place, hydrogen may better mimic consumers current transportation habits. Unlike electric vehicles, which can require hours of recharging after expending their range, hydrogen vehicles refuel much like gasoline-powered cars do.
