    You can get any of these:
    There are nearly 800 G-Wizes on London streets already. It just got an AC upgrade, and will get lithium-ion battery upgrade next year. That, for £7K

    So who will be first to fill the oh-so-significant niche between luxury roadster, and a NEV that refuses to cooperate on highways ? The one that will be the next Henry Ford ...

    I saw that. Sounds like London has a lot of incentives for small electric cars in the city.

    NEV's are limited to driving at speeds ~ 40 MPH. They have limited range and seating. The next Henry Ford and we hope Tesla fills that role, will occur with the introduction of the White Star and 3rd gen vehicles. Filling the niche however requires > 200 miles per charge (I consider 500 the holy grail), quick charging, room for 5 and speeds of at least 90 MPH. If it sells for $40k US and is advertised well, the demand will exceed supply for years.
