Sir, Tyler Brûlé (Life & Arts, May 27) imagines “a Mitteleuropean energy group that allowed you to pull up at elegantly designed [petrol] stations for the best coffee, a sprawling print offer, plenty of cakes and a host of places to recharge and fill up”. How much better to imagine an elegantly designed station for electric cars. It takes half an hour or so to charge your electric car — just enough time for a nice cup of coffee with the Life & Arts section.
