Honda will lease you a fuel cell 2020 Clarity for $379 a month. That is a little cheaper than the $389 a month for the 2020 Toyota Mirai. Both come with a fuel card for $15,000 worth of hydrogen.

I would wait the for the 2021 Mirai though. WAY better looking than the outgoing 2020 model and RWD.

Carbon-based capacitors are not unheard of, even though they're more suitable for quick charge and discharge cycles.

Also suitable for what you can make out of materials from a patch of ground. And a kiln.

Even though I wouldn't expect the average Joe to make an EV battery pack out of dirt from the backyard, I can't deny it would be impressive if someone did it.
