Nova

I caught this episode and it was very interesting. Here's the link about Cars of the Future

post #2 of 3

Just finished watching it.  Good show.  It had some of my favorite people - the Car Talk guys and Joseph Romm.  I've read a couple of books by Romm, and listen to the Car Talk podcast every week.

 

The show was a bit out of date.  For example, they only had a prototype Tesla and there was no projected production date for the Chevy Volt (now it's 2010).  They didn't talk about biofuels at all, which I thought was a little unfortunate.  I thought it was a little odd they separated the UC Davis plug-in hybrid and Chevy Volt, putting the Tesla in between.

 

For the most part it was interesting though.  Let's give Eli credit for mentioning it 4 months ago, too!

With so many posts, and that i'm hardly on here,  I did not notice someone else already mentioned it. Great minds think alike. Right on~

 

Yes, though a bit out of date & missing some info, I still found it interesting. I saw it about 2 weeks ago, maybe 3, obviously a re-run. I"m always 1 step behind. Goodness.
