Make Hydrogen Happen

H2 still powers only a tiny fraction of total passenger vehicles in the country, but growth is high.

These vehicles still represent under 0.1 percent of the total Chinese “new-energy vehicle” market.

Last year, the country saw the sale of about 6,000 hydrogen fuel cars, which was an increase of 72 percent over the number of units sold in 2022, according to data released by the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers (CAAM).

December saw the strongest sales of H2-powered vehicles, when Chinese drivers purchased 1,512 units. Of those, 1,298 were manufactured within the country. As a result, China became the only country in Asia that experienced an increase in the sale of H2-powered vehicles in 2023. This may also make the country the largest market for the vehicles in the world.
