FURTHER NOTES ON
Just after the last post on electric vehicles, I came across a small article in the Guardian (they might not have wanted to do a large article, you know, with all those car ads in their paper) about the first e-motorbike to go 150mph. Mission One, a California company, has just been put on sale by Mission Motors, for delivery in 2010. Mission Motors' founder, Forrest North, is a former Tesla engineer. His bike is to take part in this summer's TTXGP, a motor race in the Isle of Man that bills itself as the world's first clean emissions grand prix. Story by Adam Vaughan.
