    If that is the shape of things to come, we are in for some really interesting times. I am starting to believe that however much one would love their classics, something like this can sway the most hardcore classic fanatic towards the new age electric car. Well done, peugeot. It was about time. Renault? Citroen?

    If we can have sensible power outputs combined with long battery life, then that would be brilliant. But they probably first want to make a point that an electric powerplant is a better drive than an internal combustion engine.

    I think the next twenty years could be a fascinating time, as long as people keep their hands off their nukes.

    who needs "nukes"...we here in "thicktoria" are controlled and surrounded by sheep who are scared of their own shadows... 0-100 in 3.49 seconds... these people are nuts...dont they realize only cops are capable of driving at such "insane" speeds....

    It is all about marketing, not speeding. Track racing and supercars are to provide brand identity and a dream. Those that aspire to own these things end up buying a family hatchback with baby seats.

    The way the weather events are turning cars might have to become more like sleds/boats as well. 'They' don't seem to be considering this, ie flash flooding and severe storms (or are they?).

    Most Europeans would be happy with a Snowmobile at the moment.

    Don't want to appear picky, but where would I put my shopping?
