Toyota pokes fun at Elon Musk by showing that the Mirai can run on BS: video

Japanese carmaker demonstrates that their fuel cell vehicle can run on hydrogen derived from cow manure 

 

Fuel cell vehicles have their share of detractors, but few are as high profile as Tesla CEO and founder Elon Musk. During a talk in 2013, Musk stated that fuel cell vehicles were, quite simply, bulls**t – and nothing more than a marketing gimmick.

So Toyota, manufacturer of the Mirai, have taken Musk to task, hiring US filmmaker Morgan Spurlock (Supersize Me) to direct a series of short videos demonstrating the benefits of renewable hydrogen. The first, which you can see above, shows engineer Scott Blanchet following the refinement of cow manure into hydrogen – demonstrating that the Mirai can, very literally, run on bulls**t.
