What Happened To Hydrogen-Powered Cars? By JEREMY SHERE Posted May 28, 2010 What Happened To Hydrogen-Powered Cars? | A Moment of Science - Indiana Public Media I just heard Glenn Beck extol the virtues of Hydrogen Cars and then attribute it's demise to Government chicanery involving the financial 'Bailout.' I was screaming at the radio that Hydrogen Cars are impractical until some way is found to more efficiently, more economically separate the hydrogen from the (typically) oxygen to form electricity. Will someone please spread the news to everyone that Hydrogen Cars cost more to fuel than gasoline powered cars because of the cost of creating usable hydrogen. That makes these cars impractical. Until an improved process makes it more efficient Hydrogen Propulsion will remain, as the article says, "a long range solution."
