This new Mitsubishi i MiEV Sport Air electric car concept has a touch of arty 1950s design in it, which is neat. Of course all these proposed electric cars have huge hurdles to overcome when they start rolling off the line in earnest. Like where are we all going to plug them in? Forget about traffic jams and parking wars, we’re more likely to see a surge in plug rage in the future, as frantic commuters scrap with each other over the last available power socket at the supermarket. It’s a problem waiting to occur, you watch.
Anyhoo, this puppy is apparently destined to hit the showrooms next year (yeah right!) and will have a range of 100 miles on a 7 hour charge.
