Cool video, but to say that a zero emissions car is invisible to the environment is not accurate... it takes over 1,000 gallons of oil just to make the tires for it let alone the rest of the car. I'm not being a hater, just calling out one of their claims. Neat production.

Those figures are bit old already, but a car with a life expectance of 10 years and 100,000km produced around 2/3 of its emissions already during its production (a hybrid car is even worse). Only 1/3 come from driving that thing. If we can save at least this 1/3, we have a winner.

Just as an addendum...

I love it when advertisements are interesting instead of overdone and annoying.

Way to contribute to the thread about a cool advertisement in the digital video forum.
