In the mid 1960s I was an apprentice at AEI, Trafford Park, they had a development electric Mini Countryman. It uses to park outside the electrical traction engineering offices and the back was full of lead acid batteries.

Itís a great shame that the technology hasnít taken off until now, especially, with the first battery powered car invented in 1835!
