Like the car. Like the idea of the hydrodgen. Don't like the $600 a month payment. Besides, I don't lease cars.
Since this is just a science project I’m guessing you would not be willing to shell out the $500,000 plus price tag for one of these beauties. Would you? This is similar to the EV1 era only these hydrogen cars are way more expensive and harder to fill. All of these cars will be recalled at the end of the testing period. Maybe someone will be smart and smuggle a few over the boarder out of reach from the long arm of the law. These are going to be worth a fortune in 20 years. Museums will pay dearly for this car.
I hope people are not distracted from the fact that this technology, that is supported by government funding, is far from ready for commercial deployment. I am quite sure the quick-charge BEV will out perform the hydrogen car in terms of cost, reliability, efficiency, and driving performance. How about we either fund both technologies equally or don't hamper the BEV? Governments and interested corporations are afraid that the BEV will be hard to make money on. No liquid fuel to tax, too simple for maintenance revenues, etc. The BEV is a scary beast. I admit it. However, I hope governments don't use their power to hold back this obvious technology choice. Let's keep it fair!
