How about an electric car

There are an increasing number of electric cars to choose from like the gwiz which is cheap to buy and incredibly cheap to run, but it's really a town runabout at best with a range of up to 48 miles on a full charge (typically 30 - 40 miles in normal road conditions.)

At the other end of the spectrum are cars like the Tesla, a full high performance sports car with 0 - 60 in 3.9 seconds and 244 miles per charge. Sounds like a dream car and it is when you see the price.

So of the average family motorist it might be a few years before practical electric motoring becomes a reality
