    Default Everyone got their savings handy? Urban EV

    Honda are opening orders for the Urban EV beginning early next year; y'know, this cute little thing

    Hopefully this also means the roadster's not too far behind

    I really hope they keep the styling fairly true to the prototype, I think it looks awesome.

    Likewise, but I have a resigned feeling that a few mods will be made to it. Chief among them being the addition of a bumper of some description, stronger/thicker A-pillars, cheaper wheels, less interesting headlights.

    If it's true what they reckon, that in 7 years time two thirds of Honda's European car sales will be electrified! Then the future's looking stylish.

    It's not just Honda. If I remember correctly Toyota are dropping most diesel models and moving more heavily into electric and hybrid. Nissan are already headed that way quite strongly. Polestar (Volvo's performance brand) released a lease-only hybrid model in Geneva and said they will only do pure EV after that. I think even Mazda is coming out with an electrically-driven but rotary-charged hybrid soon, etc.

    I blame VW for the death of Diesel. The global backlash is all conquering. It's pushing EV to the forefront which is good thing IF we can get some infrastructure.

    Late last month a German court ruled that cities can now legally ban Euro 4 diesel vehicles. So it won't be long till they do. Then eventually all diesel will be banned for domestic uses.

    I wish they'd also rule that EV charge points should be located in all parking spaces.
