Electric cars are the future of automobiles, says a Vancouver advocate — but good luck finding one today.

About 60 Edmonton and St. Albert residents met at Grant MacEwan University Wednesday for a talk on electric cars organized by the Solar Energy Society of Alberta.

Electric cars were the leading technology at the start of the auto age, says John Stonier, director of the Vancouver Electric Vehicle Association, but were surpassed by the superior range and price of gasoline. Now, they’re making a comeback, with Nissan, GM, Subaru, BMW, Volvo, Mercedes and others all selling or releasing full or hybrid-electric cars in the next two years.
