The Toyota Mirai swiftly became the favourite car in James May's garage, with the hydrogen-powered car making for one of the most tranquil motoring experiences out there. But after a year or so of ownership, May has decided to switch things up.

  • How could an electric Camry become your favourite car?

  • Maybe it's just me with a Sunday hangover but I just read a headline elsewhere "Tesla Model Y vs Ford Mustang Mach-E comparison gets the Top Gear treatment" and wondered if that meant lying about both cars breaking down... just as a joke of course. I never saw the infamous episode but just freshly considered that I know it well (Clarkson pause) from everywhere else. Which raises the question what is the carbon footprint of that joke? James May, it's not quantified what you owe the world but you do owe - this little dalliance with the oil cartel's great white hope FCEV isn't lowering the balance.

  • I just cannot see why we haven't gone this way full tilt. Hydrogen is defo the best solution to the fossil fuel demise. It is completely clean, and can give the range of a petrol or diesel without problem. We should have gone this way wholesale, batteries are not the better option IMO. If we invested in loads of solar in areas of the world where it would work constantly, and used all the power to create H2, it would be completely clean. I just don't see batteries being a viable option long term as they die off after cycles and are costly AF to replace, and are heavy so planes etc?? But built in obsolescence is the key to making money for car companies etc.... just like you mobile phone eh...

    skierbazskierbaz27 dögum síðan
    • > It is completely clean, and can give the range of a petrol or diesel without problem. Nope. H2 is made out of steam reformed methane today. With the Mirai you are basically driving a natural gas car. Real "green" H2 needs huge amounts of electricity, and is still today not economically justifiable. The typical range of the Mirai is not bigger than of a modern BEV. > they die off after cycles and are costly AF to replace A fuell cell also needs to replaced after 2000-3000 hours of operation. They are expensive because they contain, in contrast to batteries, very rare elements. There is a reasons why a full cell car is much more expensive than a BEV.

  • I recently had a friend who wanted to get an EV but, didn't want a model S because he said he wanted a more luxurious car than a Tesla and so he leased the Porshe Taycan Turbo and immediately regretted it, not because it wasn't a fast or nice car but, the range comparatively he was getting was only about 200 miles despite being advertised as closer to 300 mi. Also the Porshe or VW Group's Electrify America Charge network only has 500 charging stations total in North America and a total of only 2,200 chargers across America compared to Tesla's Supercharger Network of 1,101 Stations currently in America alone with an average of 9 chargers per station and a Total of 2,564 stations Worldwide, with an available 23,277 superchargers total, that doesn't include the 23,963 "Destination Chargers" Tesla has implemented worldwide at places like hotels, restaurants and shopping centers where a Tesla can plug in to charge over a period of a few hours at the lower rate of 22KW while the driver shops or eats. That also doesn't include third party stations which the Teslas can also use but the Porshe has to pretty much rely on. My friend was so disappointed and rightfully so that he traded the Taycan in for a Panamera. Until more Companies build out bigger charging networks, I don't see how owning any EV other than a Tesla is practical.
