Nissan LEAF EV
19 June 2012
Electric cars are everywhere in the minds of legislators, auto makers and the auto media. With governments increasing pressure and incentives to shift in the direction of EVs, virtually every carmaker is working on at least one.
Yet in most countries, consumers are yet to play ball. Buyers remain sceptical towards newness and are not about to ditch their petrol and oil bangers en masse any time soon -- especially in countries like here and the US, where they don’t need a mortgage on a tank of fuel. For most of us, electric motors are still for milk vans, golf carts and classy kiddie toys.
