Presidents, princes, tycoons and actors are the latest recipients of the BMW Hydrogen 7 luxury car. April has been a very busy month for rolling out the BMW Hydrogen 7 as it has made its way to a couple of different continents and made it into the hands of a variety of notables.
On April 1 (and this is no joke), Prince Albert II (not in a can), the supreme head of Monaco, received the keys to the luxury zero emissions vehicle (ZEV). Handing over the keys to the BMW Hydrogen 7 was part of Monaco’s first ever environmental exhibition.
In the middle of April, J. D. Power, the founder and CEO of the huge corporation by the same name was also given the keys to test the vehicle for three weeks as part of the BMW Hydrogen 7 Pioneer Program. Handing the keys to J. D. “Dave” Power is a natural pairing since his global company is one of the largest customer satisfaction survey enterprises around, who specialize in researching consumer attitudes towards new car quality and long-term durability.
Last week, BMW CEO Dr. Norbert Reithofer presented the keys of the BMW Hydrogen 7 to President of the European Parliament Hans-Gert Pöttering. The President can partake of Germany’s eight hydrogen fueling stations during his test of the vehicle.
And, actor Jason Bateman, the star of Arrested Development has also gotten his hands on a BMW Hydrogen 7. Like Jay Leno, Will Ferrell and Ed Norton before him, Bateman is the latest candidate in the entertainment industry to be cruising red carpets in this ZEV.
But, now that the month of April is coming to a close, we’ll just have to see if May will continue the BMW “Stars in Cars” program. Most likely, the answer is two thumbs up.
