Toneman this is how Elon Musk got Tesla to where it is today. His plan was simple and he was 100% focused on implementing it. Clear end point, calculate what has to be done to get there and make it happen. Our Govt will be prioritising distractions like impact on grouse shooting while Germany just gets on with it.

Totally agree Builder Pete. Mercedes, BMW and Audi are letting Tesla get ahead in the technology/price battle on battery and autonomous driving while they pursue a rather pointless dead end on hybrid cars.

Stepping stone but not a flawed one - it just takes pressure off putting the hydrogen infrastructure in faster and these polluting cars will be around for another 30 years in large numbers if they keep on making them till 2035...https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-54170207
Thanks Bellers. Now they just need to get those orders flying off the shelves! This is the link to write to Alok Sharma Business Energy and Industrial Strategy to ask questions about UK hydrogen strategy, what initiatives for fuel cells are getting govt support like in Germany, France etc, public sector purchasing moving off fossil to fuel cell alternatives etc plus support to UK industry in hydrogen enterprises. Let's get a few letters going to see what sort of answers they come up with. https://www.writetothem.com/

Govt support and subsidies need to be taken off fossil and put into fuel cell subsidies like Germany is doing. Start with public sector vehicle fleet purchasing including local govt. Not rocket science.
