CaFCP By the Numbers Main Newest

Each month the California Fuel Cell Partnership publishes the latest statistics on how many fuel cell cars have been sold and leased, how many fuel cell buses are on the road, and how many hydrogen stations are open in California.

It also lists the Number of total Japan FCEV sales and FCEB data from Japan Ministry of Economy, Trade, and Industry (METI).

The table shows how many fuel cell cars have been sold and leased, how many fuel cell buses are on the road, and how many hydrogen stations are open in California.

Numbers as of March 1, 2021 Total
FCEVs—Fuel cell cars sold and leased in US* 9,202
FCEBs—Fuel cell buses in operation in California 48
Fuel cell buses in development in California 7
Hydrogen stations available in California** 44
Retail hydrogen stations in construction in California*** 9
Retail hydrogen stations in permitting in California*** 39
Retail hydrogen stations in proposed in California*** 16
Retail hydrogen stations in funded, but not in development in California*** 72
Retail truck hydrogen stations in construction in California 3
Retail truck hydrogen stations in construction in California**** 5

***Stations in development categories
The following development categories define the various stages of development for hydrogen stations serving light-duty (passenger) fuel cell electric vehicles following applicable standards. Location and timing are tentative until the station is completed.

Construction = have begun construction or are in commissioning.

In Permitting = have either began their pre-permit application, the permit is in process, planning approval is in process, or the station has been given approval to build.

Proposed = have established site control.

Funded but not in development = In late 2020, the California Energy Commission funded (GFO 19-602) more than 100 stations. Station developers submitted lists of stations to be funded in batches. While the first batch of funding required station locations, station locations were not required for subsequent batches. As these station locations are identified, they will be added to the proposed category.

**** 5 dual-purpose stations (passenger and heavy-duty truck) were announced in the recent California Energy Commission funding announcement (GFO 19-602).

The table shows how many fuel cell cars have been sold and leased, and how many fuel cell buses are on the road in Japan.

Numbers as of January 31, 2021 Total
FCEVs—Fuel cell cars sold and leased in Japan 4,679
FCEBs—Fuel cell buses in operation in Japan 102
