Hydrogen cars not only have problems with safety, inefficiency and cost, they are also monopoly friendly.
It wasn’t a coincidence that former U.S. president, George Bush was a fuel cell’s supporter. First, because the hydrogen infrastructure would take longer to build than charging stations for battery electric cars. Second, gas companies could easily change the business model from selling gas to hydrogen and maintain their monopoly.
If automakers want to produce electric cars with fuel cells at least make them plug-in, since they already have batteries for regenerative braking.
