Audi to unveil a new fuel-cell prototype later this year

According to a British media, Audi would make a return to hydrogen as a result of several concerns about electric vehicles.

Audi seems to have several problems with electric vehicles. After delays on their e-tron SUV after a strike at their factory in Hungary in addition to a drop in production at the battery manufacturing level, Audi seems to be fed up with EVs.

Indeed, the British site Autocar mentioned last week that the German manufacturer returns to the production of hydrogen vehicles. Audi is having doubts about the “ability of electric cars to meet the expectations of their customers” and “the supply of natural resources for the production of batteries. ”

It is for these reasons that Audi would go back to hydrogen by re-establishing their h-tron program. This is what the chairman of the board of Audi AG, Bram Schot, said in a public announcement. He wants Audi to become the leader in hydrogen in the Volkswagen Group.

“We really want to speed it up,” said Schot. “We are going to put more priority into hydrogen fuel cells – more money, more capacity of people and more confidence.”

He also confirmed the arrival of a new fuel cell prototype for later this year.
