Electric cars: Quentin Willson on greener vehicles

Help

Motoring journalist Quentin Willson said the image of electric cars as "slow and boring" was wrong and claimed they could run for 100 miles on £1.

He owns two of the cars, but a report by MPs said the public are yet to be won over by the technology.
