Maybe the requisite sustainability revolution is coming much faster than previously thought. A British car, resembling something James Bond would have driven, will do 0-60 mph in four seconds and… is electric. It’s called the Lighting GT, produced by the Lightning Car Company, and has batteries with a lifespan of twelve years. And apparently, those same batteries take just ten minutes to recharge. (Via Inhabitat.) About to be made available to the general public. Wonder what the drawbacks might be – very expensive, manufacturing-intensive, resource-scarce battery technology? More relative deprivation? Sustainability only for the super rich?
A lightning revolution is upon us
