Dingbatt: $US88 ($NZ132) for 600 kms! My current car costs about that to fill and can do just under 1200km on a tank. And of that $NZ132 about 40 bucks is government fuel excise.
So by the time a fuel cell vehicle pays RUCs that is a pretty expensive per km rate to scratch a green itch. BEVs and even PHEVs make better sense.
My biggest concern would be buying an 'orphan' technology that isn't properly supported and as a consequence has no resale value. Especially if you are talking nearly $100000. At least CNG and LPG vehicles last century could be converted back to petrol.
Yeah, this isn't the VHS vs Beta war that you want to be on the wrong side of
