James May is getting rid of his favourite car

864 535 Näkymät

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.

  • Without sufficient refueling stations even a hydrogen powered Ferrari is next to useless. James - ask Mazda to put you on their list when the new rotary engine returns (I think it will be a PHEV with the engine being rotary). At least thats an interesting engine to get to know and the recharge times will be short

  • Sadly most of your hydrogen fuel comes from fossil fuel and chemical plants - hence the lack of refueling stations (unless you choose to live next to a chemical plant where hydrogen access is the least of your air quality worries). Hopefully we will see these at major port fuel stations for large semi trucks crossing the English channel and other large watery bits that trucks cross. Pity Toyota does not make large semi trucks just those "get your tesco food delivered by truck" ones

  • Well, this didn’t last long! I clearly recall the video when he revealed this car and said only time will tell which is the winning strategy - batteries or hydrogen. So I guess the case is closed. Just didn’t expect him to declare the winner so soon.

  • the Australian government is trying to push hydrogen cars on it people, because if they are tied to a fuel source that they have to go to a service station for then they can tax them and if you have a 10-20 kw solar panel system on your roof they can't tax that but charge you for the kilometers you drive. they get more by taxing the fuel and if they start taxing the km's people may realise this and reduce going out spending money

  • still dont understand why everyone pushes lion battery cars as the solution when its not the best solution. hydrogen means gasstation fueling drive in minutes. electic li-on cars means parked hours charging. hydrogen cars dont have chemical waste every few years when you replace battries either. we can make hydrogen in the nights when powercosumption is less and the grid can use it to make hydrogen

  • Not enough hydrogen pumps, not enough hydrogen???? All seems rather odd when the government has pointed out all new gas Central Heating boilers must be able to be run on hydrogen. For this to happen large cost effective hydrogen production must be in the horizon. It seems that battery charging and batteries are now protected, when in fact they jumped to batteries as an easy option to satisfy the green lobby. Or is it that they don’t want people to get around on long journeys????

  • 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...

    skierbazskierbaz2 kuukautta sitten
    • > 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.
