I recall at Cobo Hall how GM had a short test track set up indoors. They were giving rides in what was claimed the first in show test drive.
Several years later I got to drive my first Volt. This time it was out in the cold Cleveland winter. It was quiet accept for all the snow hitting the inner fenders.
Then I was presented with an opportunity to drive the Hydrogen powered Chevy.
At that time I never imagined how far and fast this tech is moving.
I too discovered the torque in the hydrogen car. I asked permission from the GM rep and he said have at it.
I really don’t have issues with electric cars other than the lack of sound and smell of mechanical performance. Let’s face it Geddy Lee would never write Red Barchetta about a Tesla.
I've thrown in the Austin to Chicago route as an example. I can easily beat the Tesla to Chicago with time to take a long nap or spend a quarter of the day at an all you can eat buffet and still beat them there. When I had to do that route and used the Austin to Chicago route, they were like why would you do that? Simple I had to, I could do it and a flight would have cost way more than it cost me to fill up in the roughly 17 hours of driving. I still averaged 25+mpg in my Supra, 22+ if there were some "high-speed testing" involved. :^)
