I haven't driven a car since I passed my driving test when I was 17. This was mainly because I have always lived in cities and have never needed one (or been able to afford one) but this was always backed up but my deep discomfort at the wasteful nature of this form of transport.
At the same time of course, as someone with a design background I can obviously appreciate the beauty of the engineering, speed and styling of a great looking motor. So now that I am finally at a stage where the purchase of a car is becoming pretty essential I am simply at a loss of what to do.
I mean look at the options for the green minded car purchaser; a Prius? please no, just looks too much like a Mondeo, the g-Whizz? hmm, not much space for a growing family in there. Smart car? same problem and no hybrid version yet...
I keep hearing rumors of lot's of sexy hybrid cars just round the corner but haven't seen much evidence yet, although 2007 may well be a different story hopefully.
So as I undertake my search over the next couple of months I will keep things up to date here. I'm guessing the market for sexy looking hybrid cars has to be pretty sizeable so come on auto-makers - do your bit!
