Anyone seen one of these yet. Notice the CA address on the Brochure Electric lotus
Not realy new technology. Just brought upto date. When I worked for "Scottish Power" In the early 80s I was given one of 4 "Bedford CF" vans (Brittish equivalent of Ford Transit) which was electric. It had a range of 50 miles which was fine for city center work (Glasgow) It had a top speed of 50mph, and best of all in the UK it is exempt from road tax. Here only vehicals with internal combustion engines pay yearly road tax.
I am still not sure we are assessing the pollution from electric plants correctly. It is certainly not something you can quantify in a "xx% of a gas truck way". A doubt a "california compliant" truck will put out as much pollution as an old coal fired or bunker oil electric plant, by any way of measuring it. I am still looking at an electric car but I can't get the money to work out. I do use my glf cart for anything I can. That is virtually free to me. If they had cart paths up to the shopping centers nearby my car use would really drop off.
