Are You Ready to Become Electric?

Open a newspaper, turn on the television news, even just look around you, and you might well wonder what happened to making the world a better place.  With environmental concerns being pooh-poohed by supposedly intelligent people left, right and centre; and those who can still afford a throw away lifestyle doing their utmost to maintain it, regardless of the long-term cost, those of us who still think this stuff matters might well feel on the edge of despair.  But it is still possible to make a difference, it really is.

With one of the biggest critics of environmental concern being that buffoon Jeremy Clarkson, I am delighted that one of the world's most renowned car manufacturers has just launched it's new electric car range, and stunning they are too!  BMW electric cars combine everything you would expect from this leader in its field in terms of specification, with sleek good looks and exceptional functionality as standard.


Designed for city life and driven by a locally emission-free electric motor, these cars are 100% exempt from the London Congestion Charge.  Not only are their ecological credentials impeccable, but they achieve breathtaking acceleration at low speeds or from a standstill, and boast an impressive real-world range of 80-100 miles thanks to the high-voltage lithium ion battery.  This car is just perfect for city living, and almost makes me want to move back to the rat race just so I could drive one!  How cool does this look in the midst of downtown?


I'm not sure whether we would be able to use an electric car where we live, although I know there are new charging points cropping up here and there.  One way to find out if an electric car would fit your lifestyle and locality is to take the BMW i Test, just click through the link above to find it.  There you will be asked a series of questions to determine whether you are ready to become electric.  I hope one of these gorgeous machines suits your lifestyle!


I was fascinated to read that electric cars were very popular during the late 19th and early 20th centuries, if only we'd stuck with that idea then rather than going over to the dreadful combustion engine!

  1. I noticed a charging point somewhere last week - I can't for the life of me think where it was but I remember being very surprised!
