Hydrogen fuel cells were once touted as the path to zero-emission motoring, but advances in battery technology made hybrids and battery-powered electric vehicles more practical.

Honda recently informed the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that it would recall about 50,000 of its 2012 Civics because the vehicles might suddenly lose power.
In a report filed early Wednesday on the safety agency’s Web site, the automaker said the driver’s side driveshaft could become loose while the vehicle was in motion.
