From a unit of green energy you can either power a single hydrogen combustion car; or 20 battery vehicles. Hydrogen is simply too inefficient and impractical to make it ever into mainstream.

AS

Some people think they know everything even when they haven't lived in the environment they are talking about

there are users up there putting those cars to test and documenting it.

from https://www.carscoops.com/2023/02/tesla-model-s-sets-cold-weather-distance-record-in-norwegian-test/amp/ :

„The Model S's range dropped just 16% in cold-weather testing, as compared to the Toyota bZ4X, whose range dropped by 35%“

Yeah, I would stay away from Toyota.

And comparing an E-cycle to a car, are you seriou?

you are the one who is advocating a hydrogen car for Africa. So your are the Joker. Once a significant fraction of population there can afford a car you can be sure than sufficient electric infrastructure will be there; in the meantime you will have e-cycles or e-scooters (latter transition is happening in China and Indonesia).

You can promote Hydrogens all you want; once subsidies run dry Japan will realize with a bitter hangover that they are 10 years behind the Chinese.

Now you live in Africa!

You have the choice and EV car or a hydrogen car.

are you saying Africa does not have a sun and roofs to put on solar panels ?

Just Google Solar E-Cycles.

Or you live is northern Canada or Russian, it is -40°C and 500km between towns again no power lines.

How many millions cars does Toyota sell in there ? You can come up with edge cases but they won’t matter in the mass market. On top of that Norway has 80% ev adoption rate to further ridicule your argument !

Japan and Germany will be the only countries betting on the inefficient hydrogen vehicles - a bet they will loose.

Hydrogen is meantime here to stay and growing exponentially. 

still dreaming ? Just look at the sales numbers of battery vehicles vs hydrogen.

Given that the legitimate government of China escaped to Taiwan many decades ago I would say that „China ist a part of Taiwan“
