2 years, 45 Mirais, 2.2M km. 15 months to reach 1st million. Started with 20 Mirais in Hamburg, then expanded to 45 and added Munich and Stuttgart.
Probably, but I don't know, nor do I know if Germany has a RFS for H2 such as California does. I do know that Germany has been developing H2 production facilities using excess wind for electrolysis - Linde has a demo plant in Mainz using (wind) power to gas, and there may be others. This article describes some of the work, the politics, and the issues that will have to be dealt with:

Renewable hydrogen ‘already cost competitive’, say researchers
Whether or how long it will take to be competitive outside of niches is anybody's guess (the article gives theirs).
