Although lithium battery vehicle market grows increasingly popular temporarily, a number of energy experts believe that hydrogen fuel cell battery is more environment-friendly than lithium battery. Insiders of GWM have confirmed that hydrogen fuel cell battery will be the most widely-used energy material for vehicles over the next 30 years. Therefore, the automaker had announced the R&D of hydrogen fuel cell battery last year. On Mar. 13, GWM even joined the Hydrogen Council, becoming China's first automaker that joined as steering member of Hydrogen Council.
