Hybrid Cars

Hybrid Cars using
Fuel Cells for their energy source

1. Would you consider buying one of these in the future? Why or Why Not?

2. Why do you think there are not more of these vehicles in use?

I have all of the information on these cars but would like another opinion on these two questions please. Include any references. Thanks.

Solution Summary

Success of hybrid car with fuel cells depends upon the development of hydrogen economy. A hydrogen economy, infact, is a hypothetical economy in which energy is stored and transported as hydrogen (H2), particularly as an energy carrier for mobile applications (vehicles, aircraft). While the primary purpose is to eliminate the use of carbon and carbon dioxide, a secondary goal is to provide an energy carrier to replace dwindling supplies of petroleum.
