BMW Saves the Planet

The BMW loves trees and the picture proves it

Wanna drive round in style and protect mother earth at the same time. You're probably thinking Toyota Prius, ok well that's not exactly style now is it. BMW to the rescue. The eco-friendly Hydrogen 7 car from BMW scored really low on the recent emission tests and could be set to be the choice of style conscious environmentalists. In case you didn't know, the car will be the first hydrogen-drive luxury performance car for enthusiasts who like to hug trees - even Jeremy Clarkson can earn some green points with one of these. The BMW Hydrogen 7 still has to make it on to the forecourts in numbers but the specs look good so who knows - 12 cylinder engine capable of running on gasoline or hydrogen and producing 260 hp. The car will accelerate from 0 to 62.1 mpg in 9.5 seconds which kicks the ass of the Prius. The hydrogen tank has a capacity of approximately 17.6 lb of liquid hydrogen, giving the Hydrogen 7 a cruising range in hydrogen mode upwards of 125 miles.  After that petrol kicks in for the remaining 300 miles. The driver is the one who decides which fuel to use, with a smooth transition between both operating modes, since the engine power and torque remain identical regardless of the fuel used. 

Good luck finding a hydrogen station in your area but with the price of fuel these days, we say bring on the gas. If you want to know how you'll look at the gas station filling her up, check out this guy.

Aparently, the only downside to using hydrogen is baldness - the gas causes hair to recede into a swept back style. Hey you can't save the planet and have everything your own way now can you.
