This article spotlights the current deployment status of fuel cells in road transport at the end of 2022.

More than 70,000 FCV on the road at the end of 2022

This report aims to reflect the current deployment status of fuel cell vehicles for road transport and that of the hydrogen refueling station infrastructure as a result of a global data collection and analysis effort performed by the IEA Technology Collaboration Programme on Advanced Fuel Cells. Our data collection estimates a fuel cell vehicle fleet that surpassed the 70,000 unit mark (72,193) being refueled by a network of 1,022 hydrogen refueling stations.
You can find more information on the analysis of this data and the development of the numbers of FCVs between 2017 and 2022 in the report.
