COMPARING THE ELECTRIC LEAD-ACID BATTERY VEHICLE WITH A HYDROGEN FUELED VEHICLE INCORPORATING AN FE--TI HYDRIDE STORAGE UNIT

An electric vehicle powered by energy stored in lead-acid batteries is compared with a hydrogen fueled vehicle utilizing an internal combustion engine and iron-titanium hydride for the fuel storage. The comparison shows that for roughly equivalent vehicle types, the iron-titanium storage of hydrogen provides a vehicle with better range, better performance, and fewer operational limitations than an electric vehicle using lead-acid batteries.
