Big and brash Boris announced in 2009 that London would be the ‘Electric vehicle capital of Europe.’ The aim was to have 25,000 charging points by 2015 which I’m sure caused many manufacturers to sit up and take note believing that the UK was the electrical way forward. Unfortunately that ambitious target has had to be cut somewhat, by 23,700 in fact. Yep, the new figure for installation by 2013 is now down to 1,300. This is a further drop since this time last year when the figure was set at 7,500. Looks to me that by the time we get to 2013 the figure would be down to 3. In the meantime we see the likes of Rolls, Ferrari and Porsche all pitching in with electric cars. Should be interesting in the middle of London with abandoned exotica parked up all over the place unable to find a charging point and no power left. Got strong views on electric cars? Then let us all know. By Graham Hill
