Electric Cars

One of the things that gets me excited about the future is the advances in electric cars. The technology has been around a long time (see “Who Killed the Electric Car”, a sobering doco about how electric cars were mothballed by the automotive industry and big oil in the 90s), but the pressure of high oil prices and green demand are accelerating developments. This strip was inspired by the Tesla Roadster, a sports car which goes from 0 to 60 mph in 3.9 seconds. Fast electric sports cars won’t save the planet, but the technology will demonstrate what is possible and further reduce the stigma of electric cars. They aren’t just for delivering milk anymore.
