First Hydrogen Car In India: A few days ago Union Minister Nitin Gadkari was seen traveling in India’s first Hydrogen Car in India. It is also being called the future car. In such a situation, the question arises as to how a car or vehicle can be run with hydrogen.
How Hydrogen Car Works: Recently the first hydrogen train has appeared in China. After electric cars, the focus of the Government of India and the world is now on hydrogen-powered vehicles. Actually, instead of petrol-diesel in India, work is being done on electric cars for the last several years. Now is the time to go even further. This is the reason that the government’s focus is now going to shift from battery-powered vehicles to hydrogen cars. A few days ago, Union Minister Nitin Gadkari was seen traveling in India’s first hydrogen car.
Gadkari had reached the Parliament sitting in this car. This was the Toyota Mirai car of the Japanese company Toyota. This car has been brought to India as a demo. It is the first car in India to run on hydrogen fuel cell. It is also being called the future car. In such a situation, the question arises as to how a car or vehicle can be run with hydrogen. Here we are going to understand the complete process of running of hydrogen car.

How Hydrogen Car Works
If we talk about Toyota Mirai car, then three hydrogen tanks have been given in it. These tanks can be filled in just 5 minutes. It also has a 1.24kWh battery pack. The car gets an electric motor of 182hp. Such cars are called Hydrogen based Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle (FCEV). It is an advanced form of Battery Powered Electric Vehicle (BEV).
Actually, it is a type of electric car. A reaction is made between the hydrogen present in the car’s tank and the oxygen of the atmosphere, due to which electricity is generated. The electric motor is run by this electricity and the car runs by this. Excess electricity is stored in the battery installed in the car.

How better than EV
Not only is it better than petrol and diesel, it is also being seen as an alternative to electric cars. In fact, the biggest fear with electric cars remains the fact that they will take a long time to charge when the battery runs out. But the hydrogen car can be prepared to run on the journey in just 5 minutes. While the benefits in this are only for electric cars.
