FIRSTLY - to EXPLODE THREE PERSISTENT electric vehicle MYTHS:
MYTH 1) - that EV's are by definition LOW-RANGE. 60-70 miles is the usual
myth-conception or myth-information...
MYTH 2) - that EV's are all by definition worthy-but-nerdy little
city-shoppers (cf. TH!NK, Nissan Hypermini, Sparrow) for dyed-in-the-anorak
MYTH 3) - that hybrid-electric and fuel-cell vehicles are the best 'future
car' option. Sure - just not from the consumer's perspective!! The
hybrid-electric compromise is little more than a means of protecting the OIL
and 'ICE' food-chain, supply-chain, government petrol-tax revenues - ie. the
'status quo'. As for the fuel- cell option - drivers will similarly almost
certainly continue to be at the mercy of both oil-turned-hydrogen
fuel-suppliers(...hello Shell, BP,Texaco...) and the taxman...whoopie!
In short - the higher the range of PURE electric vehicles is allowed to get
- the greater the threat to this familiar coalition of vested interests.
See: EV's Are Still The Gold Standard in Electrifying Times and Driving The Future:
long-range(200-300 mpc) pure EV's are cleanest option...and
achievable. Die-hard EV-sceptics can all singalong to the Stonecutters' Song!
more generally - EVUK will showcase any COOL ELECTRIC WHEELS or ZERO
EMISSION INITIATIVES and ideas from around the planet that Smash the
Stereotypes and Break the Mould and fill the media's EV- VOID ...everything
from America's electrified/stealth cycle-cops to Ferrari-kickin' Arizona
desert electric drag-racing...or 'e-scootin, eco-cruisin' Oscar-winners like
That's it - please help us TURN UP THE VOLTAGE & TURN UP THE VOLUME!!
- before we all choke to bloody death!!!
(Ed: "bloody" - a bit strong, ain't it? Carlucci: NO, it's graphic but
literal: 25,000 deaths a year and many more chronic illnesses in the UK due
to traffic pollution can be very BLOODY indeed...it's WAKEUP-CALL time...)
Why not print out and hand out our EV 'Essential Facts' flyer?
