Id rather do a VW based beach buggy should be cheaper and lighter for an EV.

I _love_ the way that journos get away with showing their biases with impunity... If you have read it already you will have noticed two statements about this vehicle which 'prove' that EVs are really just more of the same:

"In smoke-belching, coal-fired Australia, though, we won't be able to sleep that soundly as the Bugster recharges its bank of batteries overnight, ready for another day of saving the planet while hopefully not carving it up.

[ignoring green offset power, people in Tassie, or those of us with our own PVs, for a start; or that the cost/km may be 10% - a tenth - of the ICE driven beach buggy]

"It also places a question mark over any "saving the planet" claims when you take consider the industrially intensive methods needed to make those batteries.

[SO, lead-acid batteries have taken no toll on the earth? And how come they wont pick them up in my green waste?]

In this forum topic of Media, its interesting to wonder what it will take to get all these journos to re-think their views about being more carbon-neutral...

Doesnt help when Oil companies are now on defense mode dropping oil prices worldwide to supposedly help the world our of a possible recession when in fact is to get people back to driving into work rather than catch public transport, ride or walk to work. Also doesnt help when Top Gear Australia is so lame and retarded with their opinion of EVs.
