Right now they just have a concept. I don't see much that tells me that that concept is heading towards production either so...

I guess they have a base to do it if they want to.

I also imagine that the Land Rover division doesn't help much. An all SUV brand probably doesn't get great fuel mileage.

fortunately for RR all it takes is them to start using a hybrid powertrain and they are set.
even right now some people are willing to put up with the mileage it gets since everyone knows they are some of the best SUV's money can buy.

SUV's are quantified in a seperate bucket. LR has concessions accordingly. OR, Jaguar is an all car company, so smash the two together and you have your typical company.

I'm not sure how regulators view them however...

I heard that hybrids are becoming less desirable because petrol engines are efficient enough that the cost savings from hybrids comparatively aren't very high. I wonder how that is going to play out in the long run.

It certainly would appear to be more energy efficient and green than most other options out there. It's hard to say at the early stage like this if it is going to proliferate though. What would need to happen for it to catch on?

What an idea.... where are the hydrogen fueling stations?
They need infrastructure to support, I have never in my life seen a hydrogen fueling station
Very true. There is no infrastructure that I know of. I guess they'd have to build it, but its hard to do that when they aren't sure if hydrogen will become popular or not.

At least with hybrids and EVs there are multiple companies developing technology and creating supply, with the hydrogen fuel cell technology it seems to only be Toyota. They are going to have to get other companies on board if they want to create an infrastructure.
