Whilst the debate continues as to whether the future for the car is electric or hydrogen Toyota have announced that their new family sized electric car to challenge the Nissan Leaf will make full use of many of the apps that are available via Microsoft as a result of a joint venture. The idea is to make the new cars ‘information terminals’ with new apps that go way beyond silly games. Cars will be linked to servers around the world wirelessly with the ability to offer Sat Nav, web access, phone connectivity and in car entertainment without the need for dedicated hardware.

There will even be an app that will check the car’s battery condition and enable the car to be set to charge remotely. Whilst all this sounds impressive Nissan have already linked up with Apple so most of this is already available in the Leaf – so nah nah nah nah nah!

I must say this sounds exciting and I’m sure that the gadget geeks will now be turned back on by the idea of electric cars. But the real question is how much extra power do all these gadgets take out of the limited use batteries? But it sounds interesting. By Graham Hill
