Major players in the industry think that EVs are a stopgap measure at best. Volkswagen declared that nobody wants EVs, except governments. In Japan, Toyota and Honda are talking louder and louder about hydrogen. There must be something better than plugins: A revolutionary technology that powers the car from a renewable energy source in an environmentally responsible fashion.

BMW just found what the world needs.

BMW’s CEO Norbert Reithofer said today that automakers, especially German automakers, need to look beyond electricity as the only renewable energy source. He thinks it’s foolish to focus on a single technology, reports Associated Press via Canada’s CTV.

Ok, ok, what is it? You’ve heard it here first:

Reithofer said Germany’s leading automakers “have to come up with something new.”

No kidding, really? You bet. Reithofer predicted that future cars will be based on “a new concept, new construction.”

It’s that simple. German ingenuity at its best.
