Electric cars are cool...

Style icon Dr Who reckoned Fez's were cool.

Now radio DJ Mark Goodier has said his kids reckon their new Nissan Leaf electric car is cool too.

But what's really bought a smile to Mark's face is the fact that it's not costing him anything to re-charge his electric car thanks to a solar panel installation on the roof of his garage.

According to the Sunday Mail (Glasgow), it's the first solar powered vehicle in the UK.

The DJ even reckons there's enough energy left over from charging his family car, to export back to the Grid, making his overall cost savings around £25,000.

The Leaf (as driven by Mark) has a range of around 100 miles on a full charge and a top speed of 90mph.
