I'm not against progress, but current EV's aren't progress, they're a step backwards in terms of usability. They're also not green - all they do is shift the point of pollution away from the vehicle to the factories where the batteries are produced and the chemicals mined and processed. Fair enough if we were told the object of the exercise is to reduce air pollution in cities, but we're being told its to 'save the planet' which is insulting nonsense.
If they come up with an electric bike which matches my current machines, and at a sensible price, then I might buy one. However, an electric bike that can cruise at 65-70mph and do around 300 miles before recharging, which only takes a couple of minutes, is a dream in some boffins head at the moment and unlikely to happen in my lifetime...
