Audi to unveil 310-mile electric SUV to rival Tesla Model X

Audi’s move into Tesla’s airspace makes the front page of today’s FT;   any doubters who cling on to the hope that internal combustion will always be with us will have to accept that the game is over.  When a manufacturer as important as VW starts delivering electric cars which are both practical -  a 310 mile range removes the range anxiety problem -  and desirable,  the momentum will be unstoppable. Technology used first in expensive Audi’s will be used in larger numbers in cheaper VWs and Seats.

The article also mentions the plans Aston Martin has for an all electric four door version of its next Rapide.  When this hits the roads, the journey made by electric cars from pig-ugly freakmobiles driven by self righteous eco-loons to hugely desirable supercars will be complete. Before you order yours,  make sure that your business has enough solar on the roof to keep it charged for free.  We can help….
