Is this just PA treating himself to another toy, or would the Lexus really make a positive difference to the environment?
The conversion adds security and a LOT of weight. That's the reason the vehicle needs 445 HP. To his credit, PA prefers this to a Mercedes-Benz (or whatever) that is not electric. From my reading about this vehicle, the electric will kick in on the highway (not as much power is required), and the V8 kicks in when needed (acceleration).
Ah, I love reading about Albert's commitment to the environment, he doesn't just talk, he does, and it shows in his actions! Reminds me of Prince Charles in this way, I admire them both in this aspect. :)
