Just saw a quick ad for tonights show which is doing a story about EV's
Kearon in his EV Capri gets a staring role by the looks.

EV's in magazines

I've been a bit slack with this topic but in the latest UK CAR
magazine (Dec 09) they have a 32 page supplement on EV's, it is issue one of 'green car' magazine so may be a regular thing. This issue has a drive test of an Audi R8 e-tron, the writer is very impressed.

I hope to be able to get there but I will need to start being nice to She who must be obeyed so I can get a leave pass.
