Hyundai’s John Krafcik: hydrogen simply more efficient than batteries

(photo courtesy of Hyundai and“…Krafcik, in an interview with Plug In Cars, noted that most EVs have to carry around about a half-ton of batteries, whether fully charged or tapped out. Additionally, batteries lose about one percent of their capacity each day they’re not used, while recharging them from anything other than a quick charger takes far longer than refilling a fuel-cell vehicle with hydrogen. Krafcik said this all points to what he called “so much inherent waste and inefficiency” in battery electric vehicles.”

At Haveblue, we feel that batteries, fuel cells, and hydrogen ideally complement each other in a hybrid configuration that totally frees a marine vessel from the fuel dock.
