Consumer Reports refuels a Hyundai Tucson at the SunHydro fueling station located at Proton OnSite! Hydrogen fuel cell vehicles have three advantages over battery-electric vehicles. First, they have a longer range than today’s battery-electric vehicles. The Tucson FCV, for instance, has a claimed range of 265 miles per fill-up. The only battery-powered vehicle that comes close to that right now is the Tesla Model S, which typically squeezes out 225 miles on a charge. Secondly, refueling with hydrogen takes only a few minutes, versus the several hours of charge time for an EV. Third, cold weather reportedly doesn’t sap a fuel-cell’s driving range the way it does with conventional EVs. That’s a notion we’ve verified for ourselves.
