    It sounds like you are using the fuel cell to run the motor directly. I am not an expert on fuel cells but it may be difficult to match the energy demand of the motor during acceleration with the output characteristics of the fuel cell. The energy management system in a hybrid also charges the battery using dynamic braking. I don't think you can capture the vehicle's kinetic energy during braking with fuel cell. Perhaps you should look at combining a fuel cell with a battery in a purely electric vehicle and forget about the internal combustion engine.
