Home / Automotive / News / Ever Wonder How Hydrogen Fuel Cells Work?


Failed science class? Us too – that's why we get smarter people than us to explain things, like hydrogen fuel cells.

What we never realised about hydrogen-powered vehicles is that they are actually electric vehicles. Yup, which proves just how little we actually understand when it comes to this stuff.

Fortunately, a chap called Bart knows and has created a playlist on YouTube called Science Garage to teach the rest of us "the science behind everything automotive". As you've probably guessed, this episode teaches us exactly how hydrogen is used to power a vehicle.

Don't worry, though, it's super fun and not boring like your grade six physics teacher with the bad body odour. They even do an experiment right there on the table to show you how hydrogen explodes.

So, without trying to explain... well... any of the science, we'll let you watch the video below instead.
