Hydrogen cars: UK Government provides fund for fuel cell vehicles

The UK Government has created a £2 million fund that local authorities, fire brigades, and private companies can access to add hydrogen-powered vehicles to their fleets.

This fund will cover up to 75% of the costs of new vehicles bought by April 2017 as well as the cost oscreen-shot-2016-10-25-at-10-22-46-amf managing them for up to 3 years, according to Auto Express.

The fund will help to triple the number of hydrogen vehicles currently in use by next spring. However the main issue is that if you are running low, you are unlikely to be able to refuel anywhere convenient or close – there are just 4 public accessible sites in the UK with several more on private land. The Government is working on a station expansion that is already underway and it is estimated that by the end of the year there will be 12 to 14 consumer-facing outlets.

If you already have a hydrogen car and need to know where is the nearest station, sign up to Carandus.com and communicate with other drivers.
