Petrol is for chumps

gwiz.gifWhen it comes to cars suitable for London, I’ll never get over my first love: the G-Wiz, with its cheeky Bangalore style. For �7000 I could be topping out at 40mph and filling up with juice at my nearest FREE electrical outlet. Not to mention swanning around my free parking in Central London and scoffing at congestion charges and road tax.

But I saw my first Prius the other day, and I admit that it turned my head. Sure, it may be �17,000 and require the occasional visit to the petrol station, but it’s a proper car: Room for five, motorway speeds and a range that will take me outside the M25.

Of course, no amount of electricity will get you where you want to go in London during rush hour. I guess I’ll stick with pedal power.
