Where are they getting the hydrogen? Nuclear reactor?

Vancouver had quite a few buses powered by Ballard hydrogen fuel cell systems a decade ago. When the subsidies were cut they were mothballed as too expensive to run.

And then there is the issue of where the hydrogen comes from. Or how to store and transport it.

The OP is a feel good story that leaves out all those pesky details and glosses over others. 500 mile range per day? What problems are hidden in that innocuous statement?

How are they going to dispose of the old lithium batteries?

I would hope they'd get recycled. We recycle lead acid batteries.

But, the Tesla factory in Neveda needs all the lithium in the World? Sounds like the governments of the World are colluding to drive up the price of commodities which profits Wall Street, Banks, and World financial institutes.

The governments of the world do not all possess lithium. Very few of them do. The US has a substantial supply.
