A new pathway to reach totally carbon-free hydrogen fuel
Scientific American
As plug-in electric vehicle sales continue to putt along, automakers are increasingly pinning their hopes on hydrogen fuel cells as the clean vehicle technology of the future. Fuel cell vehicles (FCVs) produce zero tailpipe emissions. On a life-cycle basis, FCVs running on hydrogen derived from steam-reforming natural gas — currently the most affordable way of making hydrogen — produce less than half the greenhouse gas emissions of a gasoline-powered car.

Audi says it has 'mastered' hydrogen fuel cells and is ready to launch them
The Verge
At the LA Auto Show, Audi unveiled the A7 Sportback h-tron quattro, a modified version of its swoopy four-door coupe that swaps out the traditional drivetrain for a hydrogen fuel cell and electric motors at the front and rear. It'll go over 300 miles between refuelings, which take three minutes — a far cry from the hours that it can take to fully recharge a battery-powered electric vehicle.

Honda partners with FirstElement Fuel to build 'at least 12' hydrogen stations in California
Digital Trends
Toyota has invested millions of dollars into expanding the hydrogen fuel infrastructure in the U.S., but the Japanese brand isn't alone. Honda, who just announced its own FCV Concept in Japan, is partnering with FirstElement Fuel to build several hydrogen stations across the state of California. The automaker has pledged $13.8 million in financial assistance to the Newport Beach-based company, which in combination with state grants, could result in an additional 12 stations popping up across the Golden State.

Volkswagen is ready for a hydrogen-powered future with Passat and Golf SportWagen HyMotion
CNet
The future of the automobile is electric, but the question remains: Exactly where will those electrons come from? More and more cars are pulling that juice from batteries, but hydrogen is potentially an even better source. When the stuff is run through a simple fuel cell the electricity flows, just like a battery, with the big difference being you can fully recharge in just minutes. And, the only emission is water.

The fuel cell vehicles of the LA Auto Show
Ars Technica
The commercially viable hydrogen fuel cell vehicle has long been the white whale for automakers. Using hydrogen as a fuel means a car could produce nothing but electricity and water. Hydrogen fuel cells also offer greater energy density than battery-powered cars, and they can be refilled faster than their battery-only brethren. But (there's always a but), fuel-cell vehicles lack supporting infrastructure; there are only nine hydrogen-filling stations in the state of California currently.
