    BMW has revealed that it will produce a new range of cars from 2013 and that these city-biased electric vehicles will feature carbon contruction to offset the added weight of electric vehicles.

    BMW has been trialling their battery technology in cars such as the MINI E, which they don’t intend to go into mass production, but this range of cars is likely to be where they will feature.

    This Monday we will attend a press conference in Munich where we will learn more on this technology and we will blog from the event.

      Will BMW and all the other motor manufacturers be building the nuclear power stations required to fuel these electric cars? Rumour has it that Britain alone will need 10 new such new stations and finding the funding for them. As a result charging the electric car up could cost more that the fuel we now put into out fossil fuel cars. Plus even the best of batteries do not last for ever, while the materials to make them are a precious resource. It has also been worked out that a small diesel -powered car is a better option. Just a thought.
