Daimler ends hydrogen car development because it’s too costly

Tierr@_de_N@die: VW explains, just besides the graphic, that "Everything speaks in favor of the battery, and practically nothing speaks in favor of hydrogen". Nevertheless, there seems still to be room for this promising technology, specially for big trucks. 

Daimler’s Mercedes-Benz is killing its program to develop passenger cars powered by hydrogen fuel cells. The company has been working on fuel-cell vehicles for more than 30 years — chasing the dream of a zero-emissions car that has a long driving range, three-minute fill-ups, and emits only water vapor. In the end, the company conceded that building hydrogen cars was too costly, about double the expense of an equivalent battery-electric vehicle.
