Hyundai's fuel-cell vehicle could be a massive success
The Motley Fool
Hyundai isn't the only manufacturer in the race for FCEVs. Toyota Motors, Daimler's Mercedes-Benz, BMW, and a number of other car companies have spent billions in fuel-cell technology, and are all competing to see who can be the first to market with a consumer-friendly FCEV. And for good reason. FCEVs have a driving range similar to gasoline-powered vehicles and can be refueled in minutes, and hydrogen is the most abundant element in the universe.

So it's hard to tell what the final version will look like.
