have to look into that... to see if it isn't a "potential Kaboom, etc." ...but if it is somewhat viable... well Tesla has a strong alliance with Toyota... so, if it's good... Tesla will "likely benefit FROM ANYTHING IN TECH...Toyota might come up with...
Until you can buy one and fill up with hydrogen all across the country, it will remain vaporware and highly explosive vaporware at that: Hydrogen gas is highly flammable and will burn in air at a very wide range of concentrations between 4% and 75% by volume. The mixtures may be ignited by spark, heat or sunlight.
Tesla has and is removing all the barriers to full acceptance of electric vehicles other than price. The well heeled early adopters will pave the way for future affordable EVs. Electricity is fairly ubiquitous and can be made in an environmentally friendly way.
All for EVs and EVs for All
Just like a regular gasoline car, hydrogen cars have a storage tank for fuel. this needs to be filled up at a hydrogen station.
however, for short commutes, we don't need these hydrogen stations. Honda and GM are making compact hydrogen refueling staions that fit into a garage.
and no, you will not have to fill it up more frequently. the Audi A2H2 gets 92 MPG. Hydrogen will cost about 2.50 a pound
(a pound of hydrogen is roughly a gallon of gasoline. or was it a kilo?????)
Hydrogen is most explosive in confined spaces, and can detonate only if mixed with air or oxygen. In open areas, an explosion is almost impossible because the gas has such a high dispersion coefficient. This also allows a hydrogen fire to burn out faster than one with gasoline or methane.
Dispersion is quick when hydrogen spills, and it has a low density. It does not cover the ground the way gasoline does. The explosion hazard does not last for more than a few seconds after a spill if it occurs.
There is no risk to the environment from hydrogen, because it is not toxic or corrosive. It is not any more dangerous than gasoline, natural gas or kerosene, based on testing. Most public discontent with hydrogen stems from the Hindenburg explosion in 1937, but the detonation was found to be caused by the paint coating the outside of the balloon.
