Not at all, we have gone form an electric car that can charge from 8 hours last year to an e.v that can charge in 30 mins from any public charge point, the E.S.B are upgrading their chargers to allow this to be possible, but currently the non upgraded chargers will charge in an hour. In the case of the Renault Zoe that is!
Show me an ice car that has had such a major development in just 1 year ?
|It's astonishing how fast electric vahicles are progressing, if only ice cars developed so fast, we could have had very fuel efficient cars decades ago!|

The modern petrol is light years ahead of what compared to 20/30 years ago. Look at FIATs twinair or VW`s TFSI engines. Trying running a old carb engine and see what it was like before modern fuel injection and ECU`s. I`m sure some of more technical posters could come up some more examples.
