The car above is, despite the awful American design, symptomatic of what is to come. It offers a decent range, is well priced and could do an awful lot for electric vehicles.
At some point it feels inevitable that electric cars will take over. Yes, we have the passion for real cars, but cars are not like mechanical watches and holding on to the past will be an expensive hobby that makes little sense.
You need 4 wheels, power and the ability to control a car (until self-driving models arrive) and the need for an engine and fossil fuel will make no sense in the shortest of times.
We are in 2017 and we believe that we are at the cutting edge. We marvel at the internet, phones, tablets and automated homes, but we are nowhere.
I suspect that within a decade electric cars will be at least 50% of the vehicles on the road. We will be controlling almost everything in the home by voice and charging devices will feel archaic.
We look back all of the time and pat ourselves on the back. Just maybe we need to look forward and realise that 99% of what will change the way we live is just around the corner.
