However, BMW refused to declassify any of the technical characteristics of "green" crossover. We only know that the series hydrogen car will go in 2022, its refill will leave less than 4 minutes, and the range should be quite impressive. Its mass production is scheduled to start by mid-decade, given sufficient demand and adequate infrastructure.
