A big Brumby forward in a little electric car

scott fardy and electric car

The ACT Electric Vehicle Council are letting us all know they’ve got Brumbys hard man Scott Fardy getting around in a i-MIEV:

Local Brumbies player, Scott Fardy will lead a charge with a difference this month as he takes to the streets of Canberra in a 100% electric Mitsubishi i-MiEV.

It’s all thanks to Rock Development Group and the ACT Electric Vehicle Council (the Council) to help support and promote electric vehicles as a viable transport alternative for the ACT.

Scott Fardy said “When I travelled to Japan in 2009 I couldn’t believe how many electric vehicles were on the road. I’m so excited that I get to cruise the streets of my home town in one for a month.”

Scott will share his electric vehicle experience via the social media platform Twitter using the handle @scottfardy and hashtag #EVsrock. “I thought this would be a really fun and interactive way to share my adventures with everyone and I really hope to hear from lots of other Twitter users who see me cruising around town.”

What’s Your opinion?

Having driven one, they are surprisingly roomy and perform quite well. I’m a big boy (well over 6 ft and 110kg) and had no problems at all.

I would love to see him getting in and out of the car. Some of the bruises on his head won’t be from rugby.

And stop emitting such large clouds of smug.

They also need to not look stupid, and not make the drivers look like hyper-douches.

As much as I like the idea of a car I don’t have to put redonkulous amounts of fuel into, it is a lot of money ($48k) for not a lot of car. Plus it would need to get its absolute max range in order to get me to work and home again and even then it would be sketchy, and that without using the radio, air-con, windows, lights, wipers or heating.

Electric cars need to get a lot better and a lot cheaper before the masses will even consider them.
