Much has been written about hydrogen powered vehicles or cars, and aircrafts. I think there hasn't been a car builder or manufacturer that isn’t involved in the study and production of hybrid cars.
Honda for one, with its FCX Clarity-Fuel Cell car. It is running in the U.S. and Japan and is now being supported with Honda's development of its new generation home solar hydrogen fueling station. It is certified under EPA-Environmental Protection Agency in the U.S. and the California Air Resources Board (CARB).
