New technology in the industry so we bring Gary -- -- Louis and editor at fox car report dot com talk more about that.
And and one other thing for you as well we've talked about throughout the hour in terms these patriotic brands because there -- cars on that list but GM and Honda hydrogen.
Cars you've driven these hydrogen cars avenue in -- you're testing of everything that's out there.
Career or talking hydrogen cars -- basically talking electric cars that generate their electricity right that I have a big battery pack they've got a fuel cell they carry -- hydrogen.
That combines with oxygen to create.
Election is that it's very high tech stuff these satellites that bordered on for the past fifty years it's been the fuel of the future now maybe -- finally -- to the point where it can happen are we doubt the good knock or the rub against always has been -- we have the infrastructure in place can we move forward.
More kind of stock.
Page that's at some point because you're right the future has been coming for a long time where we structure is the issue technologies -- but right now -- only about ten hydrogen fueling stations in the country there's a 150000.
Gas station so what has to happen other government has to start help in building these things or one of these companies has to do with themselves like we've seen -- do with a charging stations.
They build their own infrastructure they're saying we're gonna wait for governments that are review -- -- but if you do that you want to demand to be there -- -- -- your sister -- to bet that bet that it's there if your private company willing to put up the private capital and -- particular neck.
-- -- the cars and then the infrastructure rebuilding infrastructure hope people by the -- always go to started when I was in China a few years ago at the auto show that the Beijing auto show and one of the big car company.
It made the calls gone but somebody was talking about this in China and -- the thing that's gonna.

Hasn't necessarily happened but something like that maybe is what the industry needs to get customers in China actually are taking to.
Electric cars as much as the government there -- -- you know the when he GM and -- teaming up.
Ford Nissan overseas also -- teaming up on all hydrogen cars and Toyota says that could have put on the road in 2015 Hungary has won on the road.
In California very small fleet of Honda clarity is right at least one of those -- 600 dollars a month.
But there's only a couple of stations there where he can field of General Motors is the working.
Didn't -- least it would be viable -- these -- a lot of different organizations and some individuals these hydrogen powered back equinox is I've driven one it -- trying to get its electric car it.
Fills up in about five minutes which is the big advantage over these big battery packs that take hours and hours to recharge.
Okay we've been showing throughout the hour this list.
This out today of the most patriotic France -- out of course ahead of the fourth of July but there auto makers on the list include.
Including G which is number one of the most patriotic friend in America kind of interest and what do we make of that being those patriotic rare look it's indelibly linked with the US role in world.
Or -- it's got seventy years of brand equity behind it.
And that is absolutely not going away you know as far as the brand is concerned right now it actually does build all of its cars in America it's one of the few brands that does that they're not Canada they're not messing up.
The cars sold here are built here but in these global markets they just know -- As the American -- you know Ford they make cars and sell cars in Europe so there sort of European brand to.
General Motors has the Opel brand in -- Chevrolet is not really a global brand yet Jeep is about as American as it gets even more so than dodge again not a brand with -- -- global presence but she's always going to be number one good when you think about agitated Jeep Wrangler that's an American car lots of people associate -- -- it probably goes back to the to the war against Gary good to see is always.
