Some years ago there was a film report on the BBC’s very popular TV motoring programme ‘Top Gear ‘. The focus of the film was Honda’s new hydrogen fuel cell powered car: the FCX Clarity. James May drove the car along a series of Southern Californian roads and by the end he was mightily impressed, with claims made that it “was the most important car for 100 years.” This is in stark contrast to the programme’s opinion on hybrid and all-electric vehicles such as the Toyota Prius and the Tesla Roadster. The hybrid they referred to as the ‘Pious’ because of its’ holier than thou owners, primarily celebrities. When it came to the Roadster most people remember it best for featuring in a road test, albeit it where it had to be pushed into the garage because its batteries had run dead after 55 miles of strenuous track action. Not the PR Tesla would’ve hoped for, demonstrated by their willingness to sue the BBC.
