Hydrogen fuel could be environmentally friendly when it is utilized as a sole fuel for automobiles. In this paper, an overview of hydrogen as an alternative fuel, with its use in IC engines and fuel cells, has been discussed in detail. We also presented a detailed study regarding hydrogen fuel production, storage, emission characteristics, and prospects. An ideal production method should ensure minimum emissions while also giving hydrogen in vast quantities. In contrast, the perfect on board storage method should be safe, less complex, and store enough hydrogen for reliable uses. All these things have to be carried out with economic feasibility. Modifications in engine designs can enable the application of hydrogen as the primary fuel, with an increase in engine efficiency and better environmental characteristics. Extensive research in hydrogen as an alternative fuel is the need of the hour and would take the automobile industry to a new era.
