Germans pledge a million electric cars by 2020
Germany look set to lead the way over the next decade when it comes to the electric car revolution. The Bundesgovernment have teamed up with the Deutsche automotive industry and announced that they aim to flood one million electric cars on to the market by 2020.
Top Gear reckon that will mean that in 2020 itself, roughly one in four new cars sold that year will be electric, giving them a decade to seriously change the mindset of their motorists.
Although Nissan recently announced plans to manufacture their electric LEAF car (pictured) here in the UK, we seem to be ambivalent about this new future of motoring. Reckon you’ll be tootling around in a plug-in motor by 2020? Or what?
