@flyingscot, we are all still coming to embrace the electric cars either by law or by choice.

I often wonder if electric cars wil truly take off.  For example Nissan make the Leaf in the UK and instead of selling 50k per year as originally planned they are only running at 7k.  That is why the new "street" price is now £13k versus list of £30k.

@prabhakar - Maybe I'm old school, but I think I would have a difficult time giving up some of those things!

You walk somewhere so you get a good feel for the thrill. Then you drive there to compare...

With many benefits that the cars of the future will bring us, some of the interesting things that we will loose are -

- The thrill of driving on highways

- The felling that the whole power is in your hands

- Outsmarting other drivers on the road by your traffic negotiating skills

- The joy of maintain you own car on Sundays with grease on all your dress

 

So whether you are in the office , at home or in a car makes not much difference.

So where do you go for the change of scene?
