Facts versus Fiction on Fuel Cell versus Battery Electric Vehicles

Have you found yourself wondering how to better understand comparisons between battery- and fuel cell-powered cars? It starts by avoiding a common mistake, the generalization that pits ‘hydrogen cars’ against ‘electric cars.’ In fact, hydrogen-powered cars ARE electric cars. Electric vehicles (EVs) can be fueled either by a battery (making it a battery electric vehicle: BEV), or a hydrogen fuel cell (making it a fuel cell electric vehicle: FCEV). In both cases, the car is an electric car.
