Why BMW Chair Oliver Zipse Says Hydrogen Cars Will Be The “Hippest Thing” On The Road

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on Hydrogen Fuel News.

This is the introductory paragraph.

BMW Chair Oliver Zipse recently spoke at an interview in Goodwood, England, underscoring that hydrogen cars will soon be the most desirable zero-emission passenger vehicles to drive, not battery electrics.

He made these points and predictions.

  • Electric vehicles will hit their peak in about ten years, then H2 will take over.
  • After the electric car, which has been going on for about 10 years and scaling up rapidly, the next trend will be hydrogen.
  • When it’s more scalable, hydrogen will be the hippest thing to drive.

I agree with him, but I do find anybody called Zipse to take seriously, because of the character in the Tom Sharpe novel; Porterhouse Blue.

BMW: Fuel Cell Electric Drive Trains Could Become Our Fourth Pillar

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on H2 View.

BMW have released this video.

Could this be a significant moment in the future of motoring?

Since the 1970s, BMW have led motoring with advanced vehicles and this seems to be following that trend.

As they say in the video, hydrogen is well suited for SUVs and longer ranges.

Ihope this vehicle is a success, as it could change the colour of personal motoring in a big way!
