    [​IMG]

    As we reported earlier this year, the few automakers still entrenched in hydrogen fuel cell technology were starting to show signs of succumbing to physics and turning to battery-powered electric cars in order to comply with stricter zero-emission regulations.

    Now one of the most prominent proponents of hydrogen fuel cell cars, Toyota, is reportedly planning to mass produce battery-powered long-range electric cars by 2020. more…

    maybe they are having a hard time selling the Mirai because there are very few places to purchase hydrogen for it. do they even sell them in North America outside of California?

    Maybe, plus, as I think Trev wrote in one of his earlier posts, how do you fill with hydrogen at home again?? :p
    Oh, and, what did we say about 'fugly'...? :)

    Thank you kindly.
