E-cars ideal for city driving

Charging stations for Electric cars are being introduced in Warsaw. Antoni Szumanowski, an expert on new drive systems at the Warsaw University of Technology, writes in the conservative daily Rzeczpospolita that electric cars have a lot going for them despite their inconveniences: "Of course they don't produce CO2 emissions. But the energy loaded in the battery has to be produced. And the power stations in which the energy is produced burn oil among other things, and emit CO2 [but less CO2 than cars]. ... Users must change their habits, and car manufacturers are slow in getting them to do that. We must drive slower and travel shorter distances. We must plan our way exactly before setting out. All of that means electric cars are the ideal solution for city driving."
