BMW Hydrogen 7The New York Times Test drove the BMW Hydrogen 7 and ran into a few snags while trying to enjoy the ride from Port Authority of New Jersey and New York. Port Authority told the reporter that they were not allowed to drive through the Holland, Lincoln tunnels, or the George Washington Bridge.

As The Times put it, “Historically speaking, it’s fair to say that the last hydrogen-dependent German flagship that docked in New Jersey left a lasting impression.”

The chances of a hydrogen car exploding are exactly the same as any vehicle with a typical internal combustion engine, but that doesn’t mean BMW and other automakers won’t have to combat negative perceptions from the public as hydrogen cars inch toward viability.
