I never really thought about this before, but a plugin Li-ion hybrid for short trips supplemented by fuel cell recharging and quick refills makes a lot of sense. This could possibly get around the hydrogen station chicken/egg problem by just building stations near major highways first to help the long haul travelers first. I have little knowledge about how much complexity a fuel cell adds to the hybrid car, but it seems like it must be less than a gas motor for a hybrid.
