Ballard could be the Intel of the automotive industry . “If an industry standard is reached in what is the core component of a car , the engine , then even a newcomer from the outside such as Ballard could become the price leader . Ballard is recognized as the leader in PEM fuel cell technology and has experience in stack cell technology , stack components , and integration of stacks with fuel processors . Ballard maybe the first company too offer $20 - 35 kilowatt or $2 , 250 - 3 , 750 for 75 kilowatt engines . The race is on to make fuel cells cars affordable . [Learn More...]
Fuel cells will enter a particular market once the cost of the fuel cell hits a particular cost point and becomes cost competitive . Fuel cells must reach a tolerable durability level of useful life of more than 5 , 000 hours . Suppose , a fuel cells operational life is 1 , 000 hours or 20 , 000 miles than durability issues inhibit consumer investment until fuel cells reach 5 , 000 hours operational levels or 100 , 000 miles making them feasible . Introduction of the fuel cell will probably start with PCs and handheld PDAs then be introduced into transit and commercial fleets , and finally automobiles when cost reduces to $50 kilowatt . Suppose that new passenger vehicle market sells 17 million vehicles and new transit vehicle sells are 5 , 000 per year . It is doubtful that fuel cell manufacturers will be able to recoup their investment , if they are sell primarily to the transit vehicle market . Initially fuel cell manufacturers will depend on government subsidizes that support the public transit system . Automotive market is the only market segment that offers sufficient volume to attract the interest of , and investment by , the vehicle manufacturers and fuel cell manufacturers . “10% market penetration” is needed to create adequate momentum for the fuel cell technology to propel itself forward exponential and replace the internal combustion engine .

Chelsea Sexton : " The EV1 caught the eye of the California Air Resources Board ( CARB ) , a regulatory body searching for ways to meet the states Clean Air Act and clear its smoggy skies " . Sep 1990 , CARB mandated if companies wanted to do business in California , they had to produce a percentage of zero emission vehicles : 1998 - 2% , 2001 - 5% , and 2003 - 10% . " The Zero - Emission Vehicle ( ZEV ) mandate might as well have been a kiss of death for the EV1 . " Automotive News in 1998 figured GM spent $350 million for the EV1 development . People outside GM believe the company spent $600 million on its multi - year lobbying and public relations campaign to kill the ZEV Mandate . In late 2001 , GM and Ford and Chrysler sued Calfornia to block the ZEV mandate . By 2005 , of the 800 EV1 available for public lease , all but 78 were hauled off to Arizona and crushed . By 2003 , ZEV Mandate " gave automakers the option of meeting requirements by making a handful of hydrogen fuel - cell vehicles for demonstration purposes " . " CARB went along with the hydrogen scenario , even though this technology would not be usable for decades , if ever . " " In 2001 , CARB had created a new category , alternative technology partial zero - emission vehicles , to give extra credit to hybrids and especially plug - in hybrids with a 20 - mile all - electric range . " In 2003 , the range was reduced to 10 miles . CARB stated , " We believe that they are accelerating our progress toward our ultimate goal , which is zero - emission vehicles . We ' re particularly happy with how this AT - PZEV portion of our regulation has worked out . " After AT - PZEZ , 2003 , GM and other automakes officially canceled their electric - car programs .
