BMW Producing Hydrogen-Electric Technology

Order Reprints

March 31, 2020— BMW released specifications on its new hydrogen-electric technology which it claims has advantages over a pure electric vehicle, reported Digital Trends.

The system contains two tanks that store about 13 pounds of hydrogen combined, a fuel cell that generates electricity, an electric motor, and a peak power battery.

BMW's hydrogen-electric powertrain is considered a zero-emissions drivetrain because it emits water vapor. 

According to the report, BMW would create a mass-produced hydrogen-electric in the 2020s, if there is demand there, if infrastructure develops and if it finds a way to produce hydrogen in a clean and cost-effective way.
