Yep, smoke and mirrors. Easiest way to reduce the number if civil servants needed would be to simplfy the tax system, oh, and cut out all the tax exemptions and loopholes. In my opinion, this would also make it far harder to fiddle taxes, but that's another long debate.Hmm... now that sounds a lot like crony capitalism!
Losing votes to the minority EV holders isn't a big risk.Drawing up plans, or feasibility studies, is nothing new. Implementation of such plans is for the politicians to decide on, and that seldom happens if they risk losing votes.
Why do I have to prove something that you keep saying is fact.?Prove the gullibility if you can, you keep repeating this so time to produce your evidence.
More gaslighting shite. Put up or shut up, if you can.Why do I have to prove something that you keep saying is fact.?
Like the other thread, you, and others purport hearsay as fact,
I don't have to prove anything, you have to prove your claims as fact,
Did Amber Heard teach you nothing,?
True , oil is not going to disappear overnight, if ever. The oil companies spent a lot of money buying technology and sitting on it. They have developed some things, eg Shell used to make solar panels, but I suspect they have stifled a lot of potential competition to oil.Petrol etc will NEVER EVER be banned.. Seen any oil companies sweating lately?? Thought not.. If they thought electric anything would take over they would simply buy the companies producing this shit and close them down. Money rules the world, and the oil companies [thank god] have more than most..
those early EVs were pretty useless, but if you only drive to the shops and back it's all you need.number plates nicked... police are looking for a bloke called Reg.
Just looked on Autotrader. 10 year old Nissan Leaf, about £5k. range - 25-40 miles. And that will drop with increased use making it pretty much worthless anytime soon. Will stick to my 15 year old BMW - puts a smile on my face every time I drive it.
The first Leaf only had a range of 80 or so miles at best to begin with. Then most early Leafs were used incorrectly by legacy thinking on batteries. Owners would charge them up to 100% after each use thinking this was best practice, as it would have been if you were dealing with good old lead acid. Unfortunately this pretty much guarantees a degraded battery capacity with lithium.those early EVs were pretty useless, but if you only drive to the shops and back it's all you need.
for me it isn't currently, but mostly because I don't need another vehicle, and live in a terraced house. The wifes little Nissan does hardly any miles, and when we do eventually get rid of that, that's when I would consider buying an EV or hybrid. That won't be for about 5-10 years, by which time we will hopefully have far better batteries, and far more high speed charging points at supermarkets and the like.still not convinced its £30k well spent
I agree with you, and as in your case, running a nicely kept 15 year old car is perfectly acceptable in my book. It will be a while yet before older, lower cost, decent range EVs work thier way down to cater for a broader demographic of affordability. This is fine for now and I think the ban on new ICE sales from 2030 allows for this to happen.still not convinced its £30k well spent

Those I I do very much take issue with though are the significant number of people who are still buying £40k to £50k and upward new cars every 3 years, by whatever funding method, yet still choosing the dirty none EV option, as in this higher priced segment there are now lots of long range, and frankly superior to drive in all aspects, electrics available.
tesla are the new twat drivers choice, replacing BMW, range rover etc.status symbol Chelsea tractors you mean
Oddly enough I have recently installed a pair of 7kW charging pillars at a block of holiday flats in Salcombe, it would seem the Range Rover drivers are considering chucking those in favour of EVs, probably Teslas, as these seem to be a popular replacement for Range Rovers.
