Are car makers celling out?
The article by Rachel Burgess on company executives’ agendas on fuel cell technology (News, 17 January) was both interesting and disturbing in equal measure.
It would seem their priority is to bombard us with largely pointless high technology, whether we want it or not. Fuel cells will only happen if forced by legislation, not by demand.
Should the listed topics that executives think most important become reality, the concept of car ownership will decline to such an extent that ordinary customers will lose interest and the industry will collapse just like the horse-and-cart industry collapsed a century ago.
