The electric could charge for a 50 mile range, the hydrogen could kick in for extended trips.

In this case, quite a small part of driving will be on hydrogen. So it doesn't really make that much sense to go hydrogen, fuel cells etc when you can just add a small gasoline-powered generator, like the BMW i3 range extender. 20 kW would be more than enough, even 10 kW would be acceptable (enough to sustain an average speed ~100 km/h, the battery will buffer accellerations and uphills).

Even bytes get lonely for a little bit.
