China, Japan and South Korea have set ambitious targets to put millions of hydrogen-powered vehicles on their roads by the end of the next decade at a cost of billions of dollars. Critics argue FCVs may never amount to more than a niche technology.

More than most of its breed, which is to say the full-on full-sized full-fat Sports Utility Vehicle, the Mercedes-Benz GLE proves an important point.

Now this looks very much like a genuine Le Mans racer from half a century ago, doesn’t it? A car that the famous racing team of the day Ecurie Ecosse, might have competed in, based on engineering by their long-time partner firm Jaguar.
