Photo #41945

This is a Peugeot Ion electric car. I took it for a short test drive, very fast acceleration in the 0 to 20 mph range. Drives like an automatic except much quieter and you know that when changing gear to e.g. reverse there's no mechanical change going on. Plug it into the mains at home / work / wherever will let you to recharge.

According to the salesmen I spoke to there is no "car tax"* to pay, but there's no insurance benefit to driving electric.

This photo was taken at an electric vehicle (bicycles, motorbikes and cars) try out event at a pharmaceutical manufacturer at Cambridge's Science park.

The event was organised by: www.travelplanplus.org.uk/news/
