VW Exec says no hydrogen cars in the near future.

Autocar.co.uk Matt Burt reports that VW Group’s commissioner for electric drive systems, Rudolf Krebs, isn’t convinced that hydrogen will be fully marketable until 2020. Krebs was at the LA Auto Show and re-emphasized Volkswagen’s drive to be a leader in electric and hybrid cars by 2018. Burt reports in his article Krebs stated, “We have a huge hydrogen car programme ongoing,” said Krebs. “We have a lot of cars that are being tested with a fuel cell stack, but we have to make clear that hydrogen vehicles in bigger numbers will not happen before 2020. There is no infrastructure available and the technology is extremely expensive and not as reliable as conventional vehicles.”
