People are always saying that hydrogen fueled cars are better than battery powered cars, but this is not the case. Hydrogen only has as much potential as petrol when batteries have so much more. For example, Nanobatteries, these batteries are pretty much millions to trillions of capacitors made of graphene. Since graphene is so thin (1 nanometer thick) you can make trillions of parallel plates, and it takes three million sheets of graphene to make a surface one mm thick. Now imagine parallel plates of graphene as thick as the battery Tesla has now. Also, there is wireless charging which is at its infancy now, but in 20 years with nanobatteries and wireless charging you can have a car that can charge while you drive, and a car that can go thousands of miles without charging.
