Using hydrogen as a vehicle fuel would require retrofitting an existing internal-combustion engine. A hydrogen-capable fuel tank, fittings, and delivery system would need to be installed. An entire industry employing many people will be created.
When Arnold Schwar-zenegger was California’s governor, there was a TV news program with him showcasing a hydrogen refilling station. I never saw any more about it after that. I wonder if Shell, BP or Exxon Mobil had any influence in the disappearance of that endeavor.
Hydrogen is making a comeback in California. Much research is being done to encourage expansion of the program, taking the stress off of the electrical production system.

You also need a combustion chamber capable of containing small hydrogen explosions. But, it is an excellent alternative to fossil fuel combustion engines,
