Where the **** am I going to plug an electric car in where I live?
I live on a dual carriage way and can only park outside my house at certain times of day. I would have to run a cable out of the house and across the pavement and the little scrotes that infest the area would have great fun unplugging every electric car they saw and the little scrotes bigger brother, mums, dads etc who have cars would probably plug theirs in instead and charge them at my expense.
You would then have to deal with the person who 'tripped over' the power lead and was suing you for a broken neck, stress, trauma, depression and the fact they're an idiot.
I would say on balance that more than 50% of the population (I'm talking the UK here) live in properties where it is not feasible to charge an electric car at home (IMHO you need a drive at least or a garage to be able to charge at home reliably and safely).
The future to me is either the hybrid type which uses an engine to recharge the battery or hydrogen if they can ever get it working properly.
Plug in rechargeable cars are a useful stepping stone and have pushed battery technology forward but they are not the future.
