Well, today’s the day. It might even go down in history. The first mass market electric car has hit or shores.
Be excited, be very excited – this is the start of an automotive revolution. No question about that. We may once have predicted or fantasised a 2011 where we all went about on jetpacks or personal hovercraft, but realistically the electric car is more useful than either of those.
One day it may be that cars run on water but for the time being zero tailgate emission electric cars are gonna rule.
Scottish power gas (I mean electricity and north sea gas, not petrol obvs) companies who offer their customers smart meters or monitors are likely to see some changes in household energy use as the car gets plugged in at night. It will be a whole new world.
