It soon really will be electric avenue

Did you know that in Singapore a HondaCivic costs well over $100,000, and it’s been this way for decades, Hong Kong has similar car prices. They both still have traffic jams, and it’s common for middle class people to have two cars. To add insult to injury, it is not practical to keep a car for 10 years.  Therefore the cost of electric cars or fuel cell vehicles should not be seen as impractical. The Telsa pictured above can go 100 Km on    $2 of electricity. A traditional car getting 9L/100Km would cost $12 for the same trip.  A commute of 40,000 Km per year would save the electric driver $4,000 a year on fuel alone, never mind that the propulsion system of electric vehicles should be virtually maintenance free.  Evaluating an electric choice will soon be a part of the car buying decision.
