Once the prices drop, there will obviously be the demand, and more charging points will appear in the city, then the air quality will benefit, roll on.

Dear Friends,
Do not forget: electric cars will help clear the air and reduce greenhouse gases, if the power source from where we charge the batteries, is renewable.
Obviuosly,if we use oil or coal for power generation, we will not have climate benefits of electric cars!

I didn't see them on the list but the Phoenix Motorcars SUT or SUV and the Obvio 828 or 012 seem interesting.

The first Geo Metro I drove, a 2-door hatchback, got 55 mpg if I didn't go over 55 mph. I drove it 156000 miles at an over-all cost of 4.6 cents per mile, including purchase, gas, oil, tires and repairs. I have had others that got 52 mpg, 47 mpg, but nothing else comes close to the 4.6 cents per mile except my bicycle! --and horses, if they are mostly grazing and I ride a lot!

i wonder when they'll realise that Edison was right and a low-cost low-toxicity Nickel-Iron battery would be a far better choice than overpriced lithium systems? I agree that the bicycle - or even an electric-assist bicycle - will outperform electric or hybrid cars no matter what...

I think the old bicycle or newer trike has more efficiency
