The fastest road car in the world is electric! in General Automotive Talk (Trucks and Cars) Posted June 5 · Edited June 5 by Force Everyone thinks of the Hindenburg catastrophy when you talk about Hydrogen and yes it is very flammable and tends to explode...but that goes for gasoline too when the gasoline vapor is mixed in perfect proportion with Oxygen so gasoline is not so safe as many thinks, it's easier to handle but it's not safe by any means. So I think Hydrogen is the future volatile or not, it's the most common element in the universe but here on Earth it's tied up in our water, and even Jules Verne said "water will be the coal of the future" back in 1874 and I believe the man was right, and if you give it time there must be safe ways developed to handle and store the gas even for the common man and research is done as we speak as there are more of us who have the same thoughts. I see the Hydrogen as a "battery in gas form" and it can be produced in advance when the electricity is cheap and with environmently safe energy like hydro electric, wind or solar power if you want to, the water itself we have unlimited source of and you can use fresh or salt water to produce the gas, and it will return back to water when it's used, a renewable source of energy that can be used over and over and we will not ever run out of it as long as we have water on our planet. It's more convenient to renew as it will be like fueling up your car today so after a few minutes of filling up you can continue to drive as far as you did before, that will not happen with any charge battery car ever regardless of wich type of batteries you use because it takes time to charge them. As for the battery powered electric cars we see today, the car manufacturers makes what's in demand and right now as most politicians focus almost exclusively on electric cars on batteries that's what they produce because they are in the business of selling cars, if the customers ask for something else they will develop and produce that as they will continue to stay in business. Yes we see many Teslas and other charge battery electric cars now but I think the limitations and inconveniences of the system with batteries you have to charge and all that comes with that will be replaced with something else more convenient and easier to use very soon, because the cost of building up all the infrastructure needed if everyone changes over the battery powered electric cars will be huge and it will for sure take time, a lot of time.
