BBC Top Gear’s presenter James May is to buy an electric car: the BMW i3.

In an interview featured on the Radio 4 programme ‘You & Yours’ on 26th May, he spoke of his opinion that electric cars are a practical, realistic consideration for the first time.

“We’ve known for a long time that the electric motor is the ideal way to propel an electric car,” May said. “We’re discovering that there’s a different sort of pleasure in motoring in an electric car because of the smoothness, the silence.”

“I like the sensation of driving electric cars. They are slightly magical. They feel futuristic. They’re very quiet, obviously, and they’re very smooth” he added.

He sees the current, early stage of EV industry as important in shaping how the car will evolve. He has decided to buy an electric car and enthused about the BMWi3: “I think it’s funky. It’s quite roomy inside. I want to be part of the experiment that shapes the future of the car.”

The government’s £5,000 cash incentive to buy EVs has been extended until 2017. Talk to EValu8 about how you can be part of the EV community too.
