    Testing time for the Electric Car.

    According to the Times Online, the government are set to trial out the new electric cars, families are being looked for to willingly exchange their petrol or diesel to test out the new electric vehicle. The main risk involved in this is the car running out of power during a journey and taking several hours to recharge. Even the most advance electric cars have a range of less than 40 miles before they need to be recharged.However, in return for this risk, they will have an amazing saving as the running cost will only be about 2p a mile, discounts on the congestion charge and the satisfaction of knowing that they are doing their bit to save the planet.Electric cars will appeal more to families with two cars. One car they will use as their main car to get to and from work, and the other, electric vehicle for school runs, shopping runs and a local run around.If these trials are a success the government believe that by 2030 almost half of Britain's cars could be running without fossil fuels, that is, if the government acted decisively and will ensure drivers that by 2015 they will have access to recharging points and that the whole cost of owning an electric car was comparable with conventional ones.
