Hollywood actor and comedian Will Ferrell has been given the keys to a BMW Hydrogen 7 for everyday use. Ferrell is the first person afforded the use of the BMW Hydrogen 7 luxury sedan to use on an ongoing basis.
The decision to hand over the keys to Ferrell is part of the newly initiated BMW Hydrogen 7 Pioneer Program. Under this program, prominent figures in the entertainment industry and business and political leaders will be given one of these luxury hydrogen cars for everyday use.
The purpose of the Pioneer Program is to promote public awareness that hydrogen cars, such as the BMW Hydrogen 7, are not only concept cars and prototypes but production vehicles as well. The Pioneer Program states that hydrogen cars are here now, and not just a promise or a dream that may just happen at some far off date in the fuzzy future.
Will Ferrell is the first of several Americans who will receive the BMW Hydrogen 7 in the coming months for everyday use. In the past, others who have been loaned the hydrogen car for the short-term include Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, Richard Gere and Sharon Stone, Peter Ligouri and Davis Guggenheim.
From Saturday Night Live and “More Cowbell” to Talladega Nights and “Hydrogen Car Guy,” Will Ferrell has come a long way over the last half dozen years and now he’s going to help us all drive into a cleaner and greener future.
