Wizzy electric car
If you're even slightly green-minded and live in London, the chances are you've heard of the G-Wiz already. Though it looks like it just rolled out of Noddy's Toy Town, the concept of the £7k car is very cool (and very cheap). It's got an electric engine which keeps going for the frankly amazing equivalent of 600mpg, it parks for free in Westminster bays and is exempt from London's Congestion Charge. Provided you supply the juice from a sustainable source, it's also completely green to run. Having borrowed one for a few days we reckon the car's a winner for a town runabout. The only real bummer - and it's a big one if you're big - is the cramped interior. We're only 5ft 9 inches tall and our head was scraping the roof. It's not much cop for out-of-town driving, either, being limited to a max speed of 40mph. Take a test drive and check it out for yourself.
