The John Batchelor show
September 13, 2004 – Lou Ann Hammond and Bill Reinert of Toyota Motor Corporation talk about Fuel Cell vehicle technology with syndicated ABC radio network host John Batchelor.
He’s also concerned with what we call well to wheels. Well to Wheels is the term the auto industry uses to describe the time or dollar amount, the raw fuel is abstracted from the ground (or hydrogen is produced) to the point it’s energy is translated into motion at the wheel of the vehicle. Reinert is most concerned with the well to wheel thermal efficiency. So far, well to wheel thermal efficiency is last for hydrogen.
