    Your reference to the new Mercedes reminded me of the Lightning GT which has similar specs. It’s web site is still promising deliveries in 2010 and a price in the 120k pounds range. It’s also 4 wheel drive using PML Flightlink (now Protean Electric) in-wheel motors. Porsche built approx. 300 electric hub-motor cars over 100 years ago!! Michelin’s Active Wheel combining an in-wheel active suspension would seem to be the ultimate development of the concept.

    It would seem to me that a company like Michelin could supply their motors to independent companies to produce all kinds of vehicles. The dynamic characteristics would be mostly a function of the software controlling the wheels. The car itself would become a passenger/cargo/battery container produced by specialist companies like the Venturi Volage. The automobile modularized. (Definitely EVOLVED :>)

    Just some thoughts you might consider in future podcasts.

  • I saw those Fifth Gear i-MiEV clips posted on our site. What was it with the cops? Booked for driving a bit slow? Another wind-up.

    Anyway, I’m amazed about Jonny Smith being involved in this stunt – I’ve seen him at green vehicle events and he was there off his own back. (See too)

    By the way, there are Tesla drivers who live up mountains in Colorado…

  • …not only that, but Tesla do want to sell you an EV in the Rockies as they have a showroom in Boulder 🙂

    Oh, heeeeeeeere’s Jonny:

    P.S – Couldn’t disagree with you more on the Tesla thing. If they don’t have a sustainable business model, we all might as well pack up and go home.

    P.P.S – wot no Ampera?

    So many great comments! We’ll certainly put these all on the show this week. David, I stand corrected on Tesla. I heard this morning they raised over $200 million with the IPO!

    But I’m still not buying shares as it’s a conflict of interests for me 🙁
