Hydrogen Insight investigation finds that new registrations of FCEVs crashed in all but three European markets


Registrations of new hydrogen fuel cell vehicles (FCEVs) are flatlining across most European markets, a Hydrogen Insight investigation can reveal, despite various companies’ plans to bring scores of new H2 refuelling stations (HRSs) on line in several countries — and new EU legislation that mandates the construction of hundreds of new refuelling spots by 2027.
