Tesla surprised the markets this week and posted quarterly profit of $312m. It was reported that Tesla’s Model 3 was the best selling car in US by revenue and the fifth by Volume. Dyson also announced that it has selected a site in Singapore for its electric vehicle factory. EV’s are gaining momentum and appear to have won the battle for the future of personal transport. Or is there an alternative.
In Germany two hydrogen fuel cell powered passenger trains developed by Alstrom have just entered regular service. Whilst this could be the future of railway networks you may ask ‘how does it affect cars’. Hydrogen fuel cells offer low emissions and may be more efficient and environmentally friendly over a ‘life-cycle’ than lithium-ion batteries. With more research and a better refueling infrastructure it could be that Hydrogen is a viable alternative to EV.
