Hyundai to cut price of hydrogen fuel car
Hydrogen Fuel News
South Korean automaker Hyundai is looking to become more competitive with its new fuel cell vehicle, the ix35, and has announced that will be lowering the price of this vehicle. Hyundai's decision may be based on the growing demand for affordable fuel cell vehicles, as well as the fact that Toyota has released a relatively inexpensive vehicle powered by hydrogen fuel. Hyundai plans to reduce the cost of the ix35 by 43 per cent, which may help it compete with other vehicles that are available in the market.

Is this the car of our future?
Huffington Post
Why do I think hydrogen fuel cars are the future rather than regular electric cars such as the Tesla, et al? Several reasons. First and foremost, you'll be able to refill your hydrogen tank in just five minutes at one of 20 hydrogen filling stations in and around original Mirai sale cities, scheduled to grow to 45 stations by the end of 2016. A filled slightly less than 5 kilogram hydrogen tank will run you around $30-$40 a fill, but both Toyota and Hyundai are supplying free fills for the first three years of ownership.
