Jay Leno Takes You On A Tour Of The BMW Hydrogen7

A while back, we had Tom Hanks promoting the benefits of his electric Scion while driving it and now comedian Jay Leno has followed suit with a in-depth look at his BMW Hydrogen7. Leno received the car (along with a host of other high-profile individuals, like Will Ferrell) as part of a test program with BMW to try out the new technology.

As you’ll see below, Jay is pretty jazzed about the vehicle’s ability to switch between hydrogen and standard petrol on the fly. He gushes about never having to worry about looking for a hydrogen re-filling station in an emergency since gasoline is still an option. He’s also pretty bold in predicting that a hydrogen infrastructure should come pretty quickly; something I personally believe will take a lot longer with prices for both the car, hydrogen, and technology in general still beyond the rest of us.

It’s a great look, however, at something available right now — and flex-fuel friendly. I do think Leno went a bit far at the end by stereotyping the green movement saying, “We’re going to go get a tofu salad, save some animals, and put on our earth shoes.” Great. Nothing like turning people off to green ideas by wrapping them up in sentences like that.
