And guess where all that electricity is coming from?

26 new coal plants are planned in the next few years in Germany alone.

Oh well, I guess we'll just have to keep buying those carbon credits to offset our vacations :laugh:

I've been saying this for awhile, bring on the hydrogen filling stations. Stand alone EV is going to place alot of pressure on utility companies, and hybrids still need gasoline.

The exhaust of a fuel cell vehicle is water vapor. If the filling station are made available I'd be buying fuel cell vehicle and bypassing stand alone EV & hybrid.

A fuel cell car is no different than an electric except it's more expensive. It still takes electricity to produce the hydrogen. In both cases, you need Site C or you need coal powered plants to produce the energy.

That can be said for all current vehicles. Big difference is filling up time.... fuel cell vs EV, none of the alternatives is as quick as gasoline or diesel.
