In these days the media have echoed the submission of the plan of action on the part of Mr Zapatero Prime Minister and Minister of Industry Miguel Sebastian to promote the implementation of the electric car at this government. Spanish governments shift public money to spend all they want in these matters but the reality is different. With current technology, the electric car has no future except for people who are willing to buy one of these vehicles only and exclusively for use by the city. The electric car will be an option when we have a range of energy equal to or above the engine fuel. These vehicles appear to only have a range of 130 kilometers. The battery should be charged at the same time or less than what it took to fill the fuel tank. Who will be willing to wait two hours or overnight to recharge the batteries?.
Solved the problem of time repostage, should have the same access to recharge or better than what we have, with service stations. The electric car should not have fewer limitations in speed, power and comfort of vehicles we currently have. Who or those behind this technology is not developed enough to enjoy the environmental benefits of electric car? The image that politicians want to sell us is to be committed to a sustainable economy, but if this technology was developed (not to be stagnant) the goose that lays golden eggs from the oil industry and this would end Who interested? Why not drive the hybrid car? We can alternate fuel and electric power to maintain the same driving performance. Imagine a smoke-free cities and noise? When we were in road fuel would use the engine and electric mode population. In no way would charge the batteries fuel for use in town.
