Honda To Electrify All Cars By 2040

Honda, one of the world’s largest automakers has decided to electrify all of their cars by the year 2040. Electrification refers to vehicles that utilize electric propulsion at least partially. In Honda’s case it would be both battery electric and fuel cell vehicles.

Fuel cell vehicles utilize an electric motor which obtains electric power from a fuel cell stack — a device that converts hydrogen into electricity. Battery electric vehicles have pulled ahead of fuel cell vehicles due to superior efficiency and simplicity.

A significant amount of energy is wasted during hydrogen production, and electric vehicles are now capable of providing 400+ miles of range per charge (and can charge overnight at home). This eliminates the range-based incentive for hydrogen fuel cells.
