did anyone else watch this? pretty crap i thought, how naieve can some people be... a university deidicating hundreds of thousands into improving the every day performance of petrol cars. "if we improve aerodynamics and add more emmissions control with better valve seating, we can increase by a litre per million k's and its only cost us $200,000 to find that out"... (not an actual quote ovcourse...)

I did watch this show, yeah. I was highly disappointed.

While it was great that there was a brief mention of the Tesla, they didn't actually hint at any real world solutions for the masses.
