Bloomberg: Senior China Official Urges Shift Toward Fuel-Cell Vehicles



Bloomberg.com December 16, 2018

After spending billions of dollars in subsidies for lithium-battery electric cars, China should now shift its focus toward developing vehicles using the competing hydrogen fuel-cell technology, a former top official said.

Benefits of fuel-cell vehicles include long driving range, short refueling time and zero emissions, Wan Gang, a deputy chairman of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference, an advisory body to the parliament, wrote in a commentary published on the state-run People’s Daily on Saturday. His advocacy now of fuel-cell vehicles represents a potential boon for proponents of such cars -- including Japan’s Toyota Motor Corp. and Honda Motor Co. as well as slew of aspiring local makers such as SAIC Motor Corp. and Great Wall Motor Co.

Battery electric vehicles, which are currently more popular, can’t meet the needs of long-distance buses, taxis, or urban logistics and long-haul transport due to their short driving range and long charging time, he said. Wan is the former minister of science and technology and known as the father of China’s electric-car industry, having successfully helped to steer the country toward EVs starting about two decades ago...more: https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2018-12-17/senior-china-official-urges-shift-toward-fuel-cell-vehicles

..."Now we should step up our efforts in our studies on FCVs to make major breakthroughs in core technologies, fundamental materials and key components," argued Wan.

2. How old are you 'little fella'?

Your scribblings remind me of junior high school.

Do those who advocate for nuclear energy have to have a reactor in their backyard?

Does Trump dig coal in his spare time?

Does William Kristol run down to the local Army Recruiter to sign up every time the louse advocates for yet another war?

Grow up.

Hydrogen is the next big thing around the world. But you aren't hearing about it, you should wonder why. And instead of your childish "responses" why not do some reading.
