NOT AVAILABLE IN $6-a-gallon EUROPE!!

Real, long-range EV's available/'test-able' in the US - of course unheard of in the UK/Europe:

: Solectria Sunrise* - 373 miles per charge. ('mpc') (cost - 3.50)
: GM EV1 - 225 mpc.
: Nissan Altra EV - 120 mpc..
: The Xebra Roadster EV - 100 mpc.
: Ford Ranger EV - 100 mpc.
: DaimlerChrysler Epic Minivan - 100 mpc.This is the electric version of Tony Blair's 'Grand' people-carrier.
: Tzero - 100 mpc. Smacks the phat a!se (US=a!s) of a Ferrari in San Francisco.
: Toyota Rav4 - 125 mpc.

* The Sunrise is So good - no major carmaker will touch it ... BMW/Rover/Alchemy what's the story? What do we owe OPEC (BP, Shell...)? See "EV Campaign"

SCANDALOUS! - NONE OF THE ABOVE AVAILABLE IN $6-a-GALLON EUROPE!!

Please - Ford, Nissan et al: don't just force-feed Europeans with WORTHY but NERDY little eco-shoppers designed to deter mainstream car-buyers!! "TH!NK VAR!ETY, TH!NK CHO!CE!!"

How's about an electric MCC Smart Roadster, "Smart Tridion", PT Cruiser, Ford StreetKa (e-StreetKa?) or an EV'en better Beetle? See Dynasty's "IT" dreamcar.

NEW! But things are looking up - see News for update on the 'e-Ka model' unveiled by Ford...

Please note: Whilst we welcome your feedback and comments, we'd like to stress that the role of EVUK is primarily to raise public awareness and to increase pressure from the public for change: sadly, "real", advanced, long-range EV's have only been made available - and publicized - in the USA and Japan (with the exception of Jersey, UK). So please don't ask us where to buy them in the UK - instead, why not join the campaign by visiting Britain's leading - EVUK-linked - EV Discussion(& Media Watch) Group Electric Cars UK?)

Thought For The Day/Decade
Fuel cell hard-sell and filling station dependency..

Americans, unlike Europeans, have every reason not to question the growing fuel cell hype. This side of the pond, however, you can bet your bottom Euro that every vested interest in sight - taxman, oil-turned-hydrogen fuel-supplier(ie. BP, Texaco, Shell etc.) , 'ICE'-maker and 'ICE' retailer(see 'Glossary') - will frantically connive and collude to keep the price of hydrogen fuel pegged at least as high as that of petrol.

Indeed Exxon, Toyota and GM have since 1998 been openly conspiring - sorry "collaborating" - to ensure that we actually continue to use petrol(!) to power our fuel cell cars. So - there'll be no ulterior motives there then. Europe's drivers have two clear eco -nomical escape routes from this filling-station tyranny:

1) charge-at-home battery EV's like the e-Ka, Altra, Sunrise (see DIY clean electricity Hotlinks) AND....

2) fuel cell vehicles powered by 'home brew', DIY hydrogen - ideally stored as liquid for real range. (Attempts will no doubt be made to ban this option on "safety" grounds).Don't expect the media here to dwell on these fuel cell 'negatives': they will no doubt simply continue to dance to whatever tune the carmakers and car advertisers want them to twirl to....
See also The Economist (24th March): 'The Fuel Cell's Bumpy Ride'
