General Motors and Toyota officials are expressing doubts about how soon people will be driving hydrogen-powered cars. Speaking at an auto show in Geneva, GM Vice Chairman Bob Lutz indicated that fuel cells are still too expensive to be practical for most consumers. Lutz also said advances in battery technology are diminishing the need for hydrogen-producing fuel cells.
