US hydrogen fuel cell car sales
decreased in 2022
According to InsideEVs, US hydrogen fuel cell sales decreased in 2022.
Only a total of nearly 15,000 hydrogen-powered cars were sold in the past 11 years. The Toyota Marai accounts for 11,000 of that number.
Inhibitors to growth of the hydrogen fuel cell vehicle market include
- price of the car
- overall energy efficiency
- lack of refueling infrastructure
- limited number of models
- limited geographical availability – basically only California
There are just two models of hydrogen fuel cell vehicles available in California, the Toyota Mirai and Hyundai Nexo.
