Electric cars will sell alongside mobile phones at Best Buy UK

Best Buy UK says its new consumer electronics stores will sell much more than mobile phones, multimedia equipment and domestic appliances. Its new shops will have a 'GreenTech' area that'll offer electric cars, motorcycles, scooters and bicycles alongside energy-saving products. The electric Tesla Roadster will be on show at the new Thurrock store, while the Citroën C1 ev'ie city car will be available in all Best Buy stores to test drive and order.

Best Buy's first UK store is set to open next week at 7am on Friday 30th April at Thurrock in Essex. Stores in Hedge End (Southampton), Merry Hill (West Midlands), Aintree and Croydon are also due to open this year.
