A lot of attention has been given to the looming rise of self-driving cars lately, to the extent that the method of their propulsion has been obscured as a result.

But if the future is driverless, then it is also electric.

A realistic option

Electric vehicles (EVs) have been a tantalising promise for decades now and can trace their origins back to the start of the 20th century, but it's only in recent years that they've moved beyond urban novelty to become a genuinely realistic option for regular mixed use.

This transition has been facilitated by the popularity of hybrid vehicles, led by the genuinely successful Toyota Prius and the Australian made Camry that shares its technology.

The growing number of hybrids on the road has helped motorists get used to the ideas of batteries holding fuel, rather than tanks.

And the sex appeal of high-end models like the Tesla Model S and BMW i3 has banished the geeky image that burdened earlier EVs, clearing the way for a new generation of affordable examples.
