“Brain Power” ca 1994

This is a fun little snippet, if for no other reason than to hear them say “…good ol’ fossil fuel”.  The folks at the Chicago Auto Show have posted a ton of vintage promo videos on their YouTube channel.  If you get caught by your boss, you didn’t get this from us.  Blame Jalopnik.  Yeah.  That’s the ticket.

    Toyota and BEVs—funny Toyota was working on BEVs then and now suddenly they attack them. Wondering if the staff at Toyota knows what a lithium ion battery is?

      Well, the people installing them in Plug-In Prius cars probably do.

    Nice post, Ted.

    btw, the html header says ’10 years ago’ instead of 20.

    Seems like Hydrogen Cars were ‘ just around the corner ‘ back then as well.
