I worked on Hydrogen energy in the end of the 1970's. The Hydrogen Economy was 'round the corner', it Still is. So i definitely do not buy the logic.

I personally think EVs for local commutes, and even long distance runs are now the future. EV technology has come a long way - both in terms of more efficient motors and also cells.
