    In the medium to long term (5 to 10) Price of Hydrogen internal combustion engines (ICE) and the production cost of Hydrogen is likely to tumble with massive investment in creating green hydrogen locally at an affordable price point, so will see the development of commercial long haul trucks and military trucks.
