I think he is seriously looking at Hydrogen like JLR. Don't want to name drop, but I see him now and again (out shooting), so if I get the chance I'll ask him his plans.

I think the infrastructure for Hydrogen would be easier than electric and no whacking great heavy batteries to get rid of after a few years which i don't think would be entirely "environmentally friendly", to use the latest buzzwords!

Saying that, I nearly bought an electric FFRR but didn't think it viable for me re battery charge. All LR cars from 1984

I know one of his direct reports, but I have to say he stays VERY tight lipped so I cannot get any goss whatsoever and not for the want of trying. Never met the big man himself. So see what you can find out. I'd love it if the line about "we're abandoning our electric vehicle project" was smoke and mirrors for doing something radical with hydrogen. D i s r u p t.

But I do not need a Dyson car. What I really need is a Dyson beard trimmer. Seriously, that is a segment crying out for some innovation. PLEASE ask him about that first! Thumbs Up I know they'd charge £299 for it, but sign me up. L405 P400e Autobiography (MY2020)... Silicon Silver / Espresso

JLR are fully onboard with electric, as is every big manufacturer - governments have made the choice of electric.

As I understand,producing Hydrogen requires a lot of electricity

Hydrogen really needs to be made using renewable electricity sources for it to stack up environmentally.
