For that much money i would much rather get Tesla. And it looks a lot better that this ugly thing
Tesla have a PTO?
Fill the house with bees.
Gov't and oil giants have been, and are, killing electric car, not lack of technology and its limitations.
The (somewhat less ugly) Honda FCX Clarity came out, what 5 -6 years ago? It hasn't changed the world yet, so I can't see something less appealing to the masses (visually) starting the change.

So what is so ugly about it?
Different front end that is required to meet all those nee safety rules?
At least it isnt a jelly bean looking thing like all new cars are.

i saw these things up close and personal, they were all covered in this crazy looking black n' white paint scheme,
the front end looked mean as fvck cruising down the hwy... very smooth lines on the rest of the car... i'd buy one
Wasn't one of the issues with Ballard fuel cells the energy costs (electricity) of producing the hydrogen?
You could build really small cars around that powerplant if you didn't mind sitting on a bomb. (Hydrogen tanks).
... comes with 3 yrs of fuel... I wonder where you have to go to get it?
actually this is probably the reason its only available in California, for now
Research at the University of California Irvine's Advanced Power and Energy Program (APEP) has found that 68 stations, located at the proper sites, could handle a FCV population of at least 10,000 vehicles. Those stations are on their way to becoming a reality. By the end of 2015, 3 of California's 9 active hydrogen stations and 17 newly-constructed stations are scheduled to be opened to the general public, with 28 additional stations set to come online by the end of 2016, bringing the near-term total to 48 stations.
Nineteen of those 48 stations will be built by FirstElement Fuels, supported by a $7.3 million loan from Toyota. The company has also announced additional efforts to develop infrastructure in the country's Northeast region. In 2016, Air Liquide, in collaboration with Toyota, is targeting construction of 12 stations in five states – New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Rhode Island.
I heard some conspiracy theorist guy ranting about that not so long ago. Said that Ford or somebody, made an electric car back in the 60's which was roughly comparable to the performance of today's electrics. Rumor goes that some oil company, or government official got involved, and mothballed the program. Maybe true, maybe untrue.
Of course if you're young, and out drinking, whoring, and toking till all hours on a Saturday nite, forget about it.
