Here is a cute electric car I spotted in London.
Apparantly does 150 kms on a single charge over night and costs about $1 a week in extra power bills. If has a great name too... named after my Kiwi mate Richard Gee.
Like a lot of good ideas, the governement is getting in the way. The manufacturer can't get a safety clearance becuase it won't pass a safety crash test for cars that can do 160 khm per hour - true!
So sales have stopped. I think the same problem is confronting an electric car here in Perth Western Australia.
