A new electric car manufacturer "Electric Cars" (trademark applied for) has developed an electric car that runs on nuclear batteries. Spokesperson Ophelia Bumgardner commented, "This car avoids the inconvenience of looking for a recharge socket".
The nuclear battery has an isotope that generates Beta particles which are harnessed to drive an electric circuit. The isotope has a 50,000 year half life, so cars will keep running long after the owner has grown too old, or too radioactive, to drive the car.
"These kinds of batteries are used by NASA on Mars and Moon missions where there is no chance of the space mission coming back to Earth."
This is the first time that such batteries have been successfully installed into an electric car, another British First. Previous Hollywood ladies man commented, "I wish this car was out when I was a gushing ladies man, would have saved me a small fortune on childcare payouts."
There is already wide interest in the new car design - Electric Cars have already received orders from Afghan/Pakistan border areas, plus several hundred advance orders for spare batteries from customers in Iran.
