making and storing hydrogen, for one

hydrogen is a dead end and just provides you with a different intermediate fuel used to generate electricity, so instead of having on board batteries you now have a difficult to handle, expensive to produce fuel on board, plus a fuel cell

also please don't post fake stupid hype vaporware render poo poo

That's a render. Let me know when they build even a visual prototype.

edit: to be clear you are talking about some completely made up nominal price of a thing that exists right now in zeroes and ones only

it's not data! it's marketing wank! the hydrogen version if it exists of this thing if it exists could be 150% more! it could be 5% more! nobody knows! right now they've priced at a 50% more because that's a nice number that sounds good! i guarantee zero cost engineering has gone in to either of those numbers!

It's true in the US as well, EVs are ideal for urban applications but it's very difficult to get the infrastructure installed due to ownership models, parking variability, etc.
