Maybe if it didn't look like the bastard lovechild of the Civic and the new Pilot...

and it's only going to be leased (not purchased) in Cali. Any leased vehicle is like renting a house over owning one, a waste of resources.

By the way, that EST 77 city is lbs of H IIRC. They usually hold less than 10 lbs and how much does a pound of H cost?

just gotta make sure the bottles are empty before they get crushed...lol
its not a bottle, its a holding tank chilled to -250 degrees F to keep the hydrogen gas in a liquid state so it can be injected into the engine.

^ Makes me wonder what happens in an accident. -260F could cause some serious injury to flesh in an accident.

then consider the firemen/emt/etc that have to try and pull people out of these things when they crash.

^ Good point. I know a lot of wrecker services threw a fit over the Prius (and other hybrids) because of possible electrocution/acid leakage.

$600/month for a 3 year lease. That's RENT for 3 months. For $21600 I could buy a car and drive it for 10 years.

Yeah, imagine a hybrid and hydrogen collision. Whats a few hundred volts and explosive fuel amongst friends.

I'm sure they have the "cell" set up a lot like a race car with a metal tank and a inner liner, but uh, hydrogen is nasty stuff. I've played with browns gas generators and just the fumes alone can make you hack and gag pretty easy.

play your cards right at clearance time and you can get two cars for that 21k.
