Today on my nice 1.2 mile leisurely walk to work, i saw for the first time the Tesla model S, I was lucky enough to spot it and then catch up with it at a red light where i had a nice nose, and my god is it beautiful!
Not only did i see the Model S, just up the road the Nissan Leaf passed me by, albeit less beautiful my morning was uplifted with thoughts that the electric car is becoming more popular and feasible for modern life.
I get to work (at a ‘sustainability exchange’ where you would think people would have knowledge of green transport innovation) and tell everyone about my electric experiences, but no one had even heard of Tesla, let alone the Model S, my heart dropped, but i remain positive!
The BBC have recently written an article: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-29034483 about the development of supercharging, enabling you to charge your battery to 80% in 20-30 minutes, thats fast enough for even the most impatient people!
I have always wanted an electric car, i seriously looked in to the buying the Renault Zoe earlier this year, but to my dismay my bank account wouldn’t stretch to not only buy the car at 16k but have an additional monthly payment for battery hire of anything between £80-£150, depending on milage.
Theres lots of electric cars on the market, the majority of which look amazing!
One day, some day i will have an electric car! =]
