    Overall, at least we got the coverage. The only issue I had with it was that they spent a lot of time presenting the negatives of relying on public charging infrastructure, but no time on the positives of the experience IF you have your own charging point at home/office. The second half (commercial trials and experience) was far more balanced.

    I hope that some top decision makers in our government watched this report, and give full support to make charging stations soon. Maybe just uses Tesla Supercharger technology, because this patent is now open and proved beneficial and effective.

    Personally, I may not need those public Superchargers; but taxi, shuttle bus, trucks, really need to have convenient and fast charging stations, then they are all willing to use EV in near future. These cars are making a lot more road side air pollutions than other private cars.

    I am so often seeing some van/truck/bus exhaust black smoke from their tailpipe; I really wanted to stop them and ask the to check their cars, but doing so i will cause big travel congestion.

    I'm kind-of-hoping certain politicians didn't see Noel's bit (Fast Car and all that). Not really representative, but fun nevertheless.

    You can report them online, but best to have photographic evidence:

    Environmental Protection Interactive Centre : Smoky Diesel Vehicles Complaint Form

    Or, if you are really keen you can become an accredited volunteer spotter:

    The patent is now opened? Has this been officially announced yet?

    I managed to download the 1st half of the program (after trying couple hours with different software) from tvb.com. Maybe I can show them the video in owners' meeting. I think the first half is a good intro for people who have no idea about what EV is or EV development in HK.
