Originally intended to reduce urban pollution, but yes, they are very much a dead-end in the development of the passenger car
Mercedes promote the very limited electric mileage of their cars with two power sources as being for stately arrival and departure kerbside. Ferrari for boosting ultimate performance when augmenting the ICE
Increasingly, electric cars look like a dead end too, as a stepping stone away from oil to to hydrogen power. A ban on new oil powered vehicles by 2030 without any real new subsidies towards electric purchases or infrastructure was telling.
A goodly portion of UK / Earth PLC in general is already set up for converting the transport network to hydrogen, whereas electric is, well, not so much. EV discussions are all about wringing compromises to fit into real world situations. Hydrogen needs no serious compromises for consumers in advanced economies.
