Electric revolution falters

A bold 2010 prediction from Fairfax Media:
The first modern mass-produced electric car [the Mitsubishi i-MiEV] is in the vanguard of a silent revolution.
Less than two years on:
In Australia last year just 49 electric vehicles were sold, accounting for 0.0049 per cent of the new-car market, according to Federal Chamber of Automotive Industries. The Mitsubishi i-MiEV was the biggest selling electric car, but still managed just 30 sales.
Yep, that's one silent revolution.

Whaddya expect - the snippet suggests the thing was associated with that other success - the Vanguard.
