According to the EU Commission, cars with internal combustion engines should no longer be sold in the Union by 2035. It remains to be seen to what extent this proposal, which still requires the approval of the European Parliament and the 27 countries, is realistic. “But experts and customers should have the right to decide which alternative drive will prevail,” says Kristýna Váchalová, who was involved in the development of hydrogen cars in the Daimler Group.

She has extensive experience in the development of petrol, diesel, hybrid and hydrogen drives, mainly for Daimler AG for cars and trucks as well as buses. She has worked in hydrogen vehicle development for 8 years. It developed the intakes and exhausts of hydrogen cars. She received a patent for the development of a system for catching and controlling water leakage from the exhaust. Váchalová also participated in a hydrogen bus feasibility study and has completed a hydrogen system feasibility study for five different trucks.
