PBS Predicts the Car of the Future - With Tom and Ray

Follow Marty

While we think the car of the future will continue to be powered by gas, diesel and ethanol, a whole range of alternative fuel options are being studied in board rooms and laboratories around the world. And now, the Public Broadcasting System (PBS--yes, the home of Antiques Roadshow) is exploring the future of the car in a new special narrated by John Lithgow. The special, which airs on April 22, will delve deep into the worlds of hydrogen, electric, and ethanol-powered cars with the “Car Talk” brothers, Tom and Ray Magliozzi. PBS promises a light-hearted look at the topic--and yet we’re betting there won’t be any wicked fireballs or any guest spots by Vin Diesel. Set your TiVo for April 22, at 8 p.m. ET, or cruise over to the NOVA site at for more information.
