When will I be able to get an electric car?
Guru’s designs on a shiny new Tesla are well known, not least because he’s too lazy to drive himself anywhere, but the infrastructure isn’t perfect yet, as T3 found in its big 1,700-mile trip last issue – though admittedly, it was only really a problem in the Scottish highlands. That said, Tesla’s charging system is better than the other options, which is a factor if you’re looking at a cheaper option. The landscape will be ready soon, or it had better be, given that people the world over are pushing hard for a ban on new fossil-fuelled cars. Give it a decade and we’ll have the infrastructure, battery technology and variety of choice that’ll make all-electric cars a no-brainer.
