Signs for 2011

Electric car infrastructure has been appearing in London over the last 12 months, with charging stations now in several inner-city locations and in the car park of at least one major shopping mall. One particular enticement, besides the electricity, is free parking, something many Londoners would kill for.

It wasn’t until just before Christmas that I actually spotted a car using one of the charging poles. Today, not far from Shell Centre I saw a second one. Perhaps it’s a sign for 2011 as a number of manufacturers expect to have electric cars on the showroom floor.

Happy New Year to the readers of this blog.
