Nicht Schparky autos!

No one in their right mind would stand up and declare themselves an enemy of the environment - in essence, an unpopular opinion bound to be considered an invitation to early departure from this earthly coil via an untimely synchronised encounter with a thousand bicycles. This has not stopped a couple of Germans from speaking up on the subject of electric cars.  Neither declares themselves for or against but clearly point out that government goals are not even registering on the scales. Shades of the Chevy Volt!

Read all about it in der Spiegel - we think that until Teslas cost about the same as a compact Ford and can go half as far without a recharge - the electric car is about as popular as it was a hundred years ago.
