A Great Environmental Statement, If You Don’t Have to Actually Drive Anywhere

Top Gear‘s Jeremy Clarkson reviews Honda’s hybrid, not as the salvation of Mother Earth, but as, you know, a car:

It’s terrible. Biblically terrible. Possibly the worst new car
money can buy. It’s the first car I’ve ever considered crashing into a tree,
on purpose, so I didn’t have to drive it any more.

Normally, Hondas feel as though they have been screwed together
by eye surgeons. This one, however, feels as if it’s been made from steel so
thin, you could read through it. And the seats, finished in pleblon, are
designed specifically, it seems, to ruin your skeleton. This is
hairy-shirted eco-ism at its very worst.

If you want to demonstrate your environmental sensitivity, but don’t actually want to go anywhere, you’ve found your car!
