It’s the moment every eco friendly petrol head has been waiting for: the invention of an electric car that does 0 to 60mph in four seconds (that’s quicker than a Ferrari) and reaches speeds of up to 140mph. And after addressing the speed criticisms normally directed at the electric car this car also addresses the issues of recharging (fully charged in an hour) and that of using fossil fuels for the electricity – this car is powered entirely by wind. And the cherry on the cake?  This car has been developed in Britain, quickly and relatively cheaply.
This is fantastic news! Its shows that the love of speed, design and a love for the environment do not have to be mutually exclusive things…Jeremy! If we are clever we can have our cake and eat it. Furthermore these green innovations can help boost our struggling economy and create new jobs. This is what can be achieved by addressing the issues we face head on instead of finding all the flaws whilst offering no other solutions.
