How likely are you to get an FCEV?

As it stands, products like the Hyundai Nexo and Toyota Mirai, the latter which has been with us for the better part of when the general public started hearing about FCEV's, helps to show how "dirty" some "green" cars can be. Relying on just hydrogen and emitting water as its byproduct creates a unique opportunity for those of us wanting to be as carbon friendly. Even just ditching your 25mpg gasoline engine for some entry-level hybrid vehicle is a step up, but so far going hydrogen is full tilt. As more FCEV's come to market, how likely are you to get one in regards to drastically reducing your carbon footprint? I know not everyone is coming here 100% decided on an FCEV and quite possibly some will go PHEV, BEV, etc.

Adoptions rates of even newer FCV are going to be dependant on a couple of factors. First by how much governments plan on increasing the fuel infrastructure and secondly how automakers plan on pricing their new models. Imo its a big ask at $60k, which seems to be the entry level price for models old or new.

Costs of components should go down as companies continue to develop the tech. The cost of a battery in an electric vehicle has dropped by like 60% over the past couple years and that was the main factor contributing to the high starting MSRP.

Great to see this feedback so far. I think the big challenge is getting folks away from their comfort zone of mild-hybrid vehicles flooding the market right now.

It doesn't help that Toyota makes great products that do well as CPO!

Hydrogen tech can and should continue to develop in the public transportation sector. I see it being far more relevant and practical on people movers like buses and trams and they can use those platforms to explore new design ideas and applications.
