Originally, looking for a +2 to convert. About 10 years ago, the +2 is more scarce in N. America.
Range is the problem. With existing batteries, rebuilt Chev Bolt or Tesla batteries. Looks like I should be able to get to shopping 80 km 55 miles away. Hook into a charger, and return.
It doesn’t seem there is/will be any big breakthrough in battery technology.
My 80ish year old just retired computer programmer father finally turned in his p3 computer from the 80’s. Citing computers haven’t made any huge leaps, they are simply a bit faster.
As I wait for batteries to vastly improve before I make the plunge, I havent seen any new breakthroughs.
And it actually looks like I will be going for the good old graphite composite, rather than the lithium. But we will see.
Born, and brought home from the hospital (no seat belt (wtf)) in a baby!

Honda and Hyundai have cars with this, but the problem right now is generating the Hydrogen in the first place and then finding somewhere to store it. I'm sure the horse and cart will be making a come back soon.....

What was missing – until recently – was the technology to extract the hydrogen back out of the ammonia at the other end of the export equation. However the establishment of a pilot plant to test technology that can refine a 100% pure stream of hydrogen from gasified ammonia using a metal membrane is under way.
