Sunday 8:00 PM on BBC TwoBetween Seasons
That was probably the most boring and pointless episode of TG I've seen.
Touring Cars: great idea, but dull film.
Tom Jones: meh..
V8 granny thing: I'm sorry, but I'm older than 8, so that left me cold.
TG Stuntman: pretty much as above if I'm honest.
I gave last week's a 10 - this week's looks like a 5 - a 6 if I'm generous.
Well i dont think it was that bad to be honest. Tom Jones and the awards were bad, but the cars were pretty good.
Especially when Jeremy said that its snowing in hell, i cried how much i laughed...
|A totally biased and completely inaccurate show if you ask me. |
James May said the Honda does not have batteries, yet even Honda's prodcut spec sheet says it has a large 288V lithium Ion pack.
There were questions about the sources of electricity for the Tesla, but no mention of the sources of hydrogen. one leader of hydrogen production published a figure saying Hit takes 70kWh to make and compress 1kg of H2. That drives the FCX Clarity 72 miles, but the Tesla can go 300miles on the same amount of electricity
The FCX clarity segment showed Jay Leno talking about the FCX as if it were better than the Tesla, but do you know he is a big Tesla fan too ? http://tinyurl.com/44lkom no mention of that in the show either.
The charge times of 16 hours were the worst case scenario, some Tesla owners are recharging in 3.5 hours.
No mention that the clarity is lease only, $600/mth and only 200 will be made. Nor that the fuel cell costs over $200,000 and needs replacing every 10k miles, or that the hydrogen fuel tank costs the same as the tesla's battery pack
The Tesla only managed 55 miles pushed to the max, but so does the Bugatti Veyron (2.1mpg X 26.7 Imp Gals)
Surely the show was nothing but a Honda sponsored PR stunt ?
