Published on February 24th, 2018 | by Elemental Excelerator

It’s no secret that Silicon Valley drives the tech world. From smart cars to smart homes, California continues to boast the world’s latest high-tech innovations and developments.

In itself that is a very high cost compared to a standard Chinese BYD K9 electric bus at about $500,000, but what strikes me more is the chosen headline in the country's respected national news media: "The future is here: the country's first hydrogen buses are coming."...
