Mayor Johnson, who has gone on record saying that his next car will be electric, was attending a preview of the IQ2 Green Festival on Climate Change conference and exhibition, open to the public on Sunday 25th January at the Royal Geographical Society in London. The event will bring together acknowledged experts in the area of climate change to raise the awareness and stimulate debate in this important area.

With a 0 to 60 mph acceleration time of 3.9 seconds and top speed of 125 mph, the Roadster delivers super car performance with far more energy efficiency than compact hybrids.
