Default electric cars

like in many countries, the goverment in portugal is a mess in all aspects, they protect and think in their circle and so on...
i knew that they were promoting solar and wind energie, witch is more positive and green than oil.
they are promoting the use of the electric car, to start this year, we still have to pay for the energie, but itīs a start.
for a small country like portugal, with all the dificulties we have here, itīs a good turn in energie and transport solution.
hope that many will fallow. no more smoke.

I really think Hawaii should be doing this as well. Thanks for the article.

sorry try again

A MUST SEE VIDEO - WHO KILLED THE ELECTRIC CAR. Go to Wideeyedcinema.com and search it, it may still be on google videos. How George Bush took off the road these amazing electric cars that people owned for about 1 year. They were beautiful to look at and wre a dream to drive. They (TPTB) came and collected these cars from the owners and trashed them. UNBELIEVEABLE.

I'm glad that a smaller country is making this attempt.

The U.S is too full of skeptics and people who'd rather not give up their gas-guzzlers.

hereīs the car they are thinking about, the next step is the users to get free batteries, charge their car on solar energie at home and adding fotovoltaic panels on the top of the car.
there we go
