I think it takes 3-3.5X as much electricity to make hydrogen equivalent to just using the electricity to power an EV directly. By that measure, a kilogram of hydrogen is about equivalent to 100kWh of electricity.

I wish I owned a practical hydrogen powered car -- I could park it next to my unicorn!
