Honda was the first automaker in the world to release a hydrogen fueled car, called the FCX Clarity on the hiighways of Southern California in 2008. A few hundred were released with plans to release more as more filling stations were to be added to California’s “hydrogen highway,” however, as the recession approached Honda slashed funding for the vehicle. Additionally, there are only 30 filling stations available to these car owners, which is hardly enough to warrant making more of these vehicles at present.
BMW, General Motors and Daimler Chrysler are other automakers who have produced a hydrogen vehicle.
Currently the number of hydrogen fueled cars is insubstantial as production costs are greater than the cost of selling them. However, it is projected that by 2020 the number of hydrogen fueled cars will be at most around 2 million, or less than 1 percent of all cars on the road although this number could grow exponentially after 2023 assuming production and manufacturing costs decrease.
