Volkswagen and US elite Stanford University develop a fuel cell for the future

  • New triple power fuel cell catalyst developed
  • Significant cost reduction with simultaneous increase in performance values

The fuel cell is regarded as a serious alternative to the classic electric car with battery cells. However, the biggest problem is the comparatively high cost of the technology. A partnership between Volkswagen and the prestigious Stanford University in the US has now significantly reduced this disadvantage thanks to a newly developed process.
