A few automakers are putting their money where their mouth is, but the rest lags behind.

Under the joint venture Fuel Cell System Manufacturing, Honda and General Motors will each invest $42.5 million, hire 100 workers, and in 2020 begin producing the cells they developed at a GM factory in Michigan.

Loop Energy eFlow fuel cells were debuted this month in the form of a 56-kilowatt range-extender (REX) power module for heavy-duty electric trucks. Loop was formed in 2000, but only turned toward commercializing its fuel cells four years ago.

The Mirai cars will be added to Brunel, a London-based ride-hailing business.

BMW will have fuel-cell cars ready for when the fundamentals are in place.

Canton, Ohio—home of the Pro Football Hall of Fame—is taking a big step forward with a hydrogen-powered 10-bus fleet.
