With the advent of mass electric car transport very nearly upon us, it's good to hear that Mitsibushi have lowered the price of their smart new i MiEV by an incredible £10 000.
The electric cars that are about to be brought onto the market are bound to be game-changers. In a world where oil can be volatile in price and is said to have already peaked, it's pretty much a certainty that while we won't be waving bye bye to our fossil friends any time in the immediate future, the electric car will continue to develop.
With some electricity suppliers now generating more renewables than ever before, the case for the electric car has really never been stronger.
It's probably been predicted in some quarters that the car's days were nearing an end - but its future now looks assured. Maybe one day in the far future cars will run on water. Might stop us complaining about the rain!
