Having worked on an electric hydrogen fuel cell semi I can tell you the advantages are for the corporations. The electric model allows the consumer to become mostly self contained, whereas the hydrogen model is just the petroleum model with great energy efficiency.
That is to say you put solar panels or wind turbines on your property and your vehicle is charged at home for the maintenance on those devices.
Hydrogen mostly require you to go to a filling station. That said, corporations have money and hydrogen is better than petrol. I personally have two electric cars and am saving money for solar. Use a Tesla PowerWall and you might be self sufficient.
