Soon electric won’t seem so eccentric

One of the major reasons people are sceptical of the benefits of electric cars is a fear that this type of vehicle will leave them short.

It’s understandable – I mean, who would want to run out of juice just as they’re on a deserted road in the wilds of Rannoch Moor and a louring sky is closing in?

But slowly, ever since the first generation Prius appeared through to the latest Nissan Leaf, people are being converted to greener motoring.

Just last week it was reported that the founder of the charity Zero Carbon World had managed to drive the 894 mile length of Britain in an electric Tesla car, using only public car battery charging points to keep him going.

Good news is that the car managed to negotiate even the most challenging of terrains and conditions without so much as a hiccup, often reaching speeds of 70mph.

Maybe one day we will all be electric and the petrol pump will be a thing of the past.
