LizzLizz makes a great point, and has perfectly introduced my favourite piece of good news for the day (HT to Jack for bringing it to my attention).
Tesla Motors are putting superchargers all over the place! Verge has a great article with the details, but the short version is that it’s going to be possible to cross America or Europe in one of their cars by the end of 2015, even if you can’t charge the car at private powerpoints (e.g staying in hotels that don’t allow car charging). Add this to their release of all their patents earlier this year and the electric car’s become a far more likely part of our future.
