So how is the hydrogen produced in the first place? Electrolysis of water purely from renewable sources? How efficient is that really?
Also from an engineering arrangement point of view it reminds me somewhat of the Howard Hughes steam car, with condensers in the bodywork. In a prang the occupants would be scolded to death. The principle of using hydrogen as a fuel is basic, but if it really was practical, efficient and SAFE, it would have been done decades ago.
