Horrible electric cars

Motor shows aren't all glamorous Lambos and funky concepts, y'know

Horrible electric cars

Wow, there are a lot of hideous electric cars on the various stands here in Paris.

Proving that its not just us Brits who get horrible little electric things that you'd never want to drive, around just about every corner is another tiny manufacturer - and we use the word in its loosest sense - with a couple of rubbishy, tacky electric cars adorning its show stand.

We've rounded up a few in the pictures on the side here. To be honest, we couldn't tell you what they're called. Or who makes them. Or exactly how many miles they'll manage before you have to knock on the door of a stranger and ask if they'd mind terribly if you could run an extension cord out of their window to charge your car.

This is because we really don't care. In truth, some of them may not even be electric. But they probably are. They look electric. And yes, we know - hidden somewhere amongst them may be an undiscovered gem, a car that'll transform the future of motoring and mean that we can drive to our hearts' content for the next few decades while producing nothing more harmful than fresh air and smiles on the faces of children. But we doubt it.

Anyhow. Have a look through them. And laugh. And be glad that you don't own one.

Now share it...
