Smoke me a Kipper I'll be back for breakfast - Ace Rimmer

Good article, it seems they still have a way to go with battery technology but I think "where there is a will there is also a way". 

The future is closer than ever  :thumbsup:

  It sound very good but over here the electric car hasn't gotten very far,  in a world where we lower production to create a demand so we can increase prices it's all to crazy for me.

US Electric Car Sales Up 59% In January 2017

Oh it's happening Carl, as people see the real benefits to their pockets and lungs of electric cars more and more are switching. [/off-topic]


Snowcrash

Found some actual 2016 figures.

USA 17,539k cars sold, 80k EV, 64K PHEV sold with 570k EV + PHEV registered.
UK 2,690k cars sold, 10k EV, 26k PHEV sold with 91k EV + PHEV registered.

PHEV = plug-in hybrid electric vehicle

Looks like USA is embracing the EV better than the UK. .46% to .37%
