    Greg Blencoe doesn't disappoint with his usual pro-Toyota rubbish in the comments too.

    He's not so much pro-Toyota as pro-hydrogen. So, since Toyota says they will have a fuel cell car for sale in 5 years, he's all about them. I suspect if, in 5 years their tune has changed to 5 more years, he will still be all about them. In a Tesla, Leaf, Fluence, Focus EV, Volt, iMiEV, Smith Electric Vehicles, Modec, Better Place, Coulomb, (I could go on and on) world he says batteries aren't ready, too expensive and heavy without enough range. Meanwhile, hydrogen is here now (Honda Clarity), affordable, carbon-free with infrastructure springing up everywhere.

    It's funny though how he often mentions Toyota by name and not so much Honda or the MB F-Cell. I wonder who pays him?
