I'm getting pretty tired of manufacturers building and promoting electric and hybrid cars. They do it because they know it will be profitable but it's about time we get some hydrogen cars and hydrogen filling stations to go along with them.
inb4 Honda FCX Clarity. That thing is pretty great but it's only available to Southern Californians

Personally I'd like to buy a hydrogen powered Volvo C30.

Hydrogen deteriorates you're engine way faster than fossil fuels, you're also basically sitting on a bomb.

You don't put hydrogen into an engine. Hydrogen goes from the fuel tank into and electricity generator which uses a hydrolysis reaction to produce water and electricity. Water vapor leaves the car through the tailpipe and the electricity is used to power electric motors.

BMW built an internal combustion hydrogen engine...
BTW, hydrogen is only a VECTOR: this means that it is intrinsically less efficient than the energy source that you used to generate it, for you cannot simply drill H from rock or collect it in the air or in the water.

Anyway, electricity production plants based on petroleum are FAR more efficient than any automotive combustion engine.

You can get hydrogen from seawater, which there is no shortage of.

By what means? By using electricity to achieve electrolysis? I got a news for you: that is far less efficient than use that power to directly drive a motor!

I said somewhere else in these comments that I have very little expertise in this area. I'm sure someone knows the answer to that question but I don't.

I have no expertise at all in this area. If I did I would build one. Besides Honda has already built one:
