I agree with JMartin and I hope they will be successful but I am affraid they will not be able to reach their production and delivery target and this will precipitate their fall. Now that they want to compete with regular automotive industry, their new customers won't forgive them so easily. Moreover they will have to achieve high quality target in order to avoid recall.
Oh sorry they 1/2 million actually.
Tesla has trouble delivering less than 100 000 cars in 2016 and promised to produce 300 000 in 2017 when Model 3 was announced. Find the mistake.
I forgot to mention: hydrogen is indeed an energy carrier (and a very good one) and that is the reason why you can create an hydrogen economy that lead to be independent in term of energy.
@ECI: Japan will produce electricity from nuclear and renewable and then produce hydrogen by electrolysis. You may like it or not, it is their plan and they are going very fast in this direction. That is the only way for them to be independent. @DaveD: I am not trolling for H2, I also think batteries will have an important place in the future. Both technology can and will exist together. I am sorry if I hurt your feeling with my comments on Tesla. What you say about US may be true however there is a world around it. In EU and JP, the problematic in term of natural ressources gives an advantages to H2. The higher density of population will make easier to create an H2 station network than can serve everyone. In the same time, the major part of the population live in appartement and park their car in the street. Many of them use public transport and use their car only for long trip. Again an advantage to hydrogen. The market of pure EV is growing fast in EU, but mainly for short range and (very) compact car.
It is incredible how this website is trolled by Tesla fan and how obvious is their lack of technical knowledge. I can see many people fighting to defend H2 and FC in an objective way while other respond with belief and false ideas. For the last ones, I will expose a few facts (without talking about science and technology): -All the major car manufacturer (Toyota, GM, Volkswagen, Renault-Nissan, etc) are doing research both on FC and battery: they are doing this because they think both market can work. Tesla is basically one of the only "manufacturer" that thinks differently. Tesla has never mass produced neither made any benefits. Tesla is led by one excentric billionnaire with a lot of money to spend while other manufacturers have a clear vision and rational thinking. -The governement (US, EU, Japan) are putting incentive in both FC and battery research: there is no plot for H2 energy...Even if it was the case for automotive, FC are still the only alternative for other applications. -H2 is being produced, stored, transported by Gas industry for decades. There is no miracle or secret. To come back to the case of Japan, they are pushing on FC to be independant in term of energy. EU would be wrong not to do the same. US is another story. Taking into account only details like consummer point of view, theoretical future price or efficiency of electrolyser (etc..) would be a great mistake to solve the wolrd energy issue.
