We all should know the videos of tiny electric vehicles bursting into flames. Question: would you like to stand close to one of those when they blow up? I guess not. But those are small vehicles with comparatively small batteries. Translate that to a 40-ton truck. Imagine how big those batteries are and what it is like when they blow up. Oh, we know how that is as electric buses blowing up is something we know. Do you want to be in one? Would you want to be on the sidewalk when such a truck blows? Those things are bombs and hydrogen is even worse. Good luck.
“Under pressure to cut emissions, truck manufacturers are choosing between batteries and hydrogen fuel cells. Wagering incorrectly could cost them billions of dollars.”
