I like the car, just hate the powertrain.

A drivable unicorn is still a unicorn.

I can drive a unicorn compressed air car for a lower cost per mile than hydrogen.

I guess in my mind its fuel source isn't practical, for me there are exactly zero hydrogen stations here and likely won't be for decades

Now since CNG and hydrogen use the same systems and components, why don't they make the car dual fuel?

It would require nothing additional since a hydrogen motor Is nothing more than an oversized ICE with injection?
