I don't think anyone is suggesting using liquid hydrogen for cars. The gaseous form would make more sense but there are definitely problems that need to be solved for it to work specifically in small vehicles. Hydrogen has much more credibility in larger applications.

Uh, plenty of people are suggesting exactly this.

nothing like driving around crazy people crashing into things with odorless energy sources 10x more flammable than gasoline.

If there are people who think liquid hydrogen in passenger vehicles is viable, I would love to read about it. I've only read about the gaseous form being used due to the storage constraints of hydrogen.

Please, if you have more information I would like to know more.

BMW is trying liquid hydrogen in a test car.

I'm sure they will test many ways in which to use hydrogen but I have yet to see people seriously advocate for a liquid hydrogen passenger vehicle. It would solve A LOT of problems is those Germans figured out how to store it efficiently in a vehicle that size.
