Nice dream, but I think that is all it is at this time. They had electric cars and trucks over 100 years ago. I was quite bored by 5 minutes into the video. The truck might do what they say, but they are going to have to be a lot of them made first, and then there's the support network necessary, before it can be real. There are going to have to be a LOT of refill depots. And then there are the environmental concerns from manufacturing, storing, transporting, refilling the hydrogen. The hydrogen tanks have to be thick walled, which means heavy. They seemed to have ignored all of those issues. Hydrogen has been proposed before, and vehicles developed, but we still don't see any hydrogen vehicles on the road.

The rest of the video answers all of your questions and though I'm also usually sceptical about such claims and not a gambling man, I would lay a bet that this technology is for real and trucks will soon be rolling of the production line.

Our local Cracker Barrel restaurant has three charging stations in the parking lot. What gripes me is that gas vehicles park in those spaces.

I had developed an electric car that only cost $500 but it was $40,000 for the extension cord. Never got the first order.

A fire chief on one city said if we go to hydrogen powered vehicles, we have better be prepared to have top quality burn units in hospitals. I recall a science teacher in junior high using soap and hydrogen to demonstrate the explosive nature of hydrogen. He would pop the bubbles with a glowing splinter. Wasn't the Hindenburg filled with hydrogen?

I for one am optimistic in light of all of the high tech times that we are living in. Weather the concept is successful or not, that guy gave a heck of selling job in my opinion, thanks for putting the video on the forum for us to see, I for one really liked it Harry and I hope that the company is successful.

I sort of wonder if the oil companies have not made them a offer to buy them out if you know what I mean, will have to wait and see what happens.

If they couldn't attract my interest in the first five minutes, I don't see them attracting it in the rest of the video. I just don't see it happening like they say, and mostly because they don't seem to have done their homework. I'll believe it when I see it.

Makes perfect sense, Hydrogen vehicles are coming from other manufactures (Honda for one), more are coming. California has some Hydrogen infrastructure in place and more being built, the East coast as well (his example discusses LA to SLC). We need to reduce our dependency on oil, this is one way to do it.

Is it snow yet?
