Electric and hybrid engines are primarily known for their economy and green credentials, but in truth they aren’t the first things that spring to mind when someone mentions supercars. Perhaps that’s all about to change. If you’re going to build an electric supercar, then it certainly helps to have your own private racing team and a great set of contacts. Lord Drayson has both. He used to be a minister in the UK government until 2010, and now he’s devoting all his efforts to making his electric car go really, really fast.
With fuel prices and concerns from the environment reaching a peak, many motorists are looking for ways to enjoy cheaper, less damaging forms of transport. While cycling, walking and public transport are all very honourable solutions to this problem, for many busy commuters and families, these options are just not practical. Thankfully, Honda seem to have come up with a genuinely workable alternative.
Driving your car with an eco-friendly attitude has never been more important than it is today. Not only does driving your car the smart way help towards reducing harm to the planet, but it will also help you save cash. Smarter driving means using less expensive fuel, which can contribute to global warming when it’s burned in an engine.
