Hydrogen ICE vehicle shipments to hit 400,000 by 2040

Hydrogen ICE vehicles are most attractive for when battery electric alternatives are unavailable or not fit for purpose.

New research from Interact Analysis shows that hydrogen ICE vehicles are in their infancy in terms of rollout. However, mass production is predicted to take off within five years. Although the costs of the engine and the vehicles themselves are relatively low, their running costs are currently high, making the total cost of ownership (TCO) unfavorable. This, coupled with the lack of refueling infrastructure required, means they are less attractive compared with fuel cell and battery electric alternatives. Hydrogen ICE vehicles require a series of minor changes compared with traditional ICE vehicles, including different spark plugs and other changes to materials. On their own, individual changes do not present too much of a challenge, but in combination the total cost of manufacturing the vehicle soars. In addition to this, adding greater complexity increases the potential risks once the vehicle is in mass production.
