Hydrogen-powered vehicles must be part of Colorado’s plan to get to zero emissions. FCEVs make for excellent passenger vehicles because they can travel 300-400 miles on a single tank, behaving similarly to gasoline-powered cars except with zero emissions – a key selling point when it comes to enticing all users to convert to electric. Plus with FCEVs, drivers don’t have to worry about diminished performance in cold weather, which is a fact of life in Colorado.

When is clean hydrogen fuel coming for Colorado cars, and who needs to get ready?  It will take more than one alternative fuel powering cars and trucks to meet Colorado’s ambitious goals of 50% reductions in greenhouse gas emissions within just nine years, and signs are growing that much-hyped hydrogen is about to have its turn.

Fuel Cell EVs Pack a Punch and Eco-Friendly.  Read about fuel cell EVs in this interview of Brian DeBruine from an article in the Colorado AAA magazine "EnCompass"
