BBC News: "Electric cars will be eligible for subsidies"

I would be grateful for a reminder on where all this cheap, clean electricity will be coming from. Also, remind me how efficient current (no pun) electricity generating stations are, including transmission losses.
When one of these things can get non stop (for refuelling) to Scotland and perform like a decent turbo diesel, then I'll think about it.
I'm a sceptic as to how 'green' these cars are given it is all new technology and needs investing in.
So far none of them handle decently, go fast or far enough and all look like Noddy cars.
I'm sure they are the way forward but I'm prepared to wait.

It Was on the news last night...apparently the gov. will subsidise the cost of these "cars" to the tune of approx £5,000. Unfortunatley the price of one of the "cars" (a basic model I think) was £23,000 that includes the £5,000 off... buy one...I think fecking NOT!!!
