Well, there is one positive comment - that he restates the Volt is due out in 2010...

But the rest of it seems to imply that GM will "do the Volt for now" but would really rather develop Fuel-cell vehicles. Which I personally think would be great...maybe we could then have boats that are powered by hydrogen too. I love my boat, but having a big block 454, it costs $5 just to start :)

Hydrogen storage is no longer a "complex problem", as 700 bar systems are now the standard to which industries are planning. At 700 bar, the energy density of hydrogen is now at a point in which it is viable for commuter transportation, and not just trains, trucks and buses.

Boeing just flew their first hydrogen fuel cell prop plane, so look for air transportation to be the first adopter, as the price of petroleum plane fuel is driving many air-based companies into bankruptcy.
