If the cost of a fuel cell-powered car like the Honda FCX or Chevy Sequel is too steep for you budget but you want to go with hydrogen, you can try the Hydrocell bike. The bike was developed by a British company called Valeswood Technology Development uses a metal hydride storage tank integrated with an alkaline fuel cell stack.
The bike holds 40 liters of hydrogen which is enough to propel the bike about sixty miles. Apparently the bike is now available for order for about $1,400 although the Valeswood site doesn't have any detailed information. If it works, I'd probably be more inclined to by one of these than pay a similar amount for the Mercedes bike.
