Helen Mirren in a fuel cell Equinox – Click above to watch video after the jump

The last time we heard anything about actress Helen Mirren and a car, she was tackling the Top Gear test track in that show's reasonably priced car. Last week, she and her husband director Taylor Hackford were in front of the camera again, this time to talk about something not so reasonably priced. The couple have been participating in General Motors' Project Driveway and field testing a fuel cell-powered Chevrolet Equinox.

We're not sure how long Mirren and Hackford spent with the hydrogen crossover, but they do seem to be very impressed with it. Like most others that experience it, they found the hydrogen electric vehicle to be utterly benign in its behavior. It drives pretty much like any other vehicle, except that it's quieter. You can check out their impressions in the video after the jump.
