  1. Climate Change is real. It will be the defining issue of our lives.
    Go electric. No emissions.

  2. Batteries, range and charging points get better every year. 90% or more charging is done at home…
    TESLA has offered to let other manufacturers use its Super Charger network if they pay their fair share. So far no one has taken them up on their offer. That is a missed opportunity for Nissan. The more available charge points the better. Soon all new vehicles will come with bigger batteries and a minimum 200 mile range.

  3. If you ask me if i would drive and own a hybrid car, i would answer that depends of what car we talking about. Prius = hell no Golf GTE = Yes BMW I8 = yes please.

  4. EVs, PHEVs, and Hybrids are great for heavy stop and go driving, where a regular gasoline engine would waste fuel, while stopping at a red light. Nowadays some newer cars come with auto start/stop system with a switch to activate or deactivate the system to shut the engine off at red lights and restart after releasing the brake pedal. These systems are great for areas with higher gas prices, such as California and New York.

  5. as long as america lives there will be no hybrid shit or anything else but fuel….its gonna take ww3 or another 100 years to move away from stupid stinky gas….

  6. Meh.

    Not a big fan of hybrids mainly because of the battery.

    If I have to decide what hybrid I love, it would be the McLaren P1. Though to be more realistic,I liked the Infiniti Q50S Hybrid.

  7. Why am I watching infomercials, what's next "What is Fracking,brought to you by BP oil" 

  8. Electric motors are better than internal combustions engines in every single measurable way. We just have shitty batteries but ones they figure out how to store hidrogen safely we can ditch internal combustion engine for good.

  9. Brought to you by Toyota? Come on guys. Was this a 5 min advertisement for the Prius? I'm finding the quality of your productions suffering as of late. You need to work harder at avoiding any appearance of biasness in your reports.

  10. Until electric cars become lighter, store longer charges and charge fast. Not to mention cost less, they still won't make over the market.

  11. I clicked on this video thinking

    "Gee I wonder who's sponsoring this episode, most likely a car company."


  12. i know this is sponcered by a gas car, but i want a hidrogen fuel call – electric hybrid….. plug-in + homemade H2 from solar panels… please….. pretty please

  13. Electric car almost arrived… and then war happened. Hmm… Electric cars are near again… and so is the war. Meh… coincidence.

  14. No mention of the diesel/electric hybrid powered German tanks in WWI???  A full 100 years before a commercially available diesel-electric drivetrain passenger car was sold????  A nitpick, I know, but worth mentioning.

  15. In manufacturing the prius, more damage is done to the environment then what the car saves. In 1984 Honda was able to achieve 52mpg with the crx, that's more than the Prius, and many other hybrids can claim. And producing those cars did nothing to the environment compared to the Prius.
