The problem with Leccy
Is that it needs a big lead.
This is ok if you are a motoring journalist and live in the Cotswolds and have a big garage with a power outlet.
Those of us who work in IT and rent affordable slums do not have this luxury. Half the time I cannot get parked near the door, and assuming I did, would have to keep the front door / window open to run a power lead out, whilst some burglar sneaks in and steals my Xbox360 (only for them to get suspended community service and counselling, but if I were to defend by property, nuLabour would throw me in jail and throw away the key cf: Tony Martin, but that's another rant for another day).
Even assuming that you get a power lead out, you will have the feral youths pulling the plug out so you're left with no charge in the morning, or someone is guaranteed to trip over it, sprain an ankle, and sue you via ClaimsDirect such that you can't afford the monthly payments for your leccymobile.
The alternative of filling up at a filling station is also useless, as I don't have 8 hours to fill it up every 90 miles.
The real alternative is in Hydrogen power / Nuclear Fusion.
