In London on holiday and was reminded that Europeans are much more energy conscious than U.S. types. Of note, have seen a number of BMW i3s toodling around. Hybrids abound, was in a Prius hybrid car for hire. Of particular note is that new iconic black cabs will only be issued in electric drive with an 80 mile range topped off by 1.5 liter motor to recharge batteries to give it a 400 mile range. This is along the lines of the BMW but a London black cab is massive in comparison. Still comments from drivers about lack of public charging stations, use of aluminum instead of steel, etc.

Very interesting glimpse at what could be in the US.
