Electric spin...

Had a ride in this sharp little mover this week - the Mitsubishi i MiEV - the first plug-in electric vehicle to hit the shores of the UK. Lots of fun, quick acceleration, sharp braking (which helps charge the battery), almost silent too. And according to makers, it only results in 30% of the carbon emissions of its conventional equivalent. Range is about 100miles.

Very nice, but the range is a little for tight me as it stands as I do little city driving - a 150 mile range would give me much more confidence that I could get where I'm going and back again on a single trip.
