What about your comment of charging at off peak times? Kind of shoots that off peak charging theory. $12 per day x 6 days a week x 10 employees= over $3000 per month. That is one less person. Now I am a small business imagine a company that has 5,000 employees on site per day needing to charge. Do you know what the expense would be just to wire up and have enough capacity to charge that many cars? You are talking hundreds of thousands of dollars just for the infrastructure that you say is in place.
We will have a network of fueling locations that will start in College Station, followed by DFW area, then working our way in all directions from there at 100 to 150 mile radius.
Executives from General Motors Corp. and Toyota Motor cast doubts yesterday about the viability of hydrogen fuel cells for mass-market production in the near term, reports The Wall Street Journal. The executives said electric cars will be a better way to cut emissions and improve fuel efficiency. Speaking at the Geneva auto show, GM Vice Chairman Bob Lutz told reporters that advances in lithium-ion batteries will enable electric cars to drive up to 300 miles without recharging, making them more attractive to the mass market. He added that fuel cells are too expensive for mainstream use.from:
"If we get lithium-ion to 300 miles, then you need to ask yourself, Why do you need fuel cells?" Lutz was quoted as saying. "We are nowhere [near] where we need to be on the costs curve" for fuel-cell vehicles.
Separately Toyota President Katsuaki Watanabe echoed the sentiment, saying that costs for fuel cells remain high and the infrastructure needed to distribute hydrogen is not in place.
