    GM had one in the mid 90's called the EV1 and could do 0-60 in about 8 seconds.

    Never trust a gov't hand-out!
    They'll get the money back somehow with interest added.

    Considering all the money they get from fuel tax VAT & VED, how are they going to pay for the NHS etc if we starting using electric cars?

    I see a new tax on the horizon

    they reckon the new hybrid electric cars will be £20k to £25k

    and your electric bill going up 3k a year.

    I'd quite happily spend 3K a year on electric for my car, instead of the 3K + I spend on petrol doing 30K a year, and also know that there was no pollution from my car - only from far more efficient power plants.
