Is the infrastructure going to be in place to support 100% electric cars?
Yes, I realise that. But a car lasts, what, 10-15 years if lucky? Without being able to buy anything other than electric (and probably not being able to buy the fuel easily by then either), what happens after?at cutover date, there will not be 100% electric cars
Unless for some reason people have already decided to scrap all their petrol ones.
The whole infrastructure needs to be in place BEFORE stopping making these cars imo.
Stops car exhaust fumes..not ideal but seems a forward step..until we have re cycle issues with LithiumI love my i10. I bet it will last another 10 years. Maybe I should buy another 2 and bubble wrap them?
Or bubble wrap something bigger, then have fun bombing about the place in a brand new petrol car when everybody else is driving their remote control cars.
But seriously, is electric even greener here? Pal in Switzerland has an electric car, but Swiss energy is all hydro or nuclear. We still burn carbon and methane....
Fekin champion.does 0-60 is 3.2 and a top speed of over 160mph.
Electric cars are fit for purpose now and increasingly cheaper to own. Tesla Model 3 performance is around 50k and does 0-60 is 3.2 and a top speed of over 160mph. With a range not dissimilar to a petrol car of similar performance. (300+ miles).
If you look at the developments of power cell tech over the last 20 years. We should be seeing cars with 1/3 as many cells needed for the same range and performance.
Ditto. £50k is a stupid amount of money for most. I actually would be ashamed if I spent that kind of money on a car, even if I had it.Unless I get a lot of numbers on the Euromillions, that amount will always be unachievable for me, even if I wanted spend that much
Unless I get a lot of numbers on the Euromillions, that amount will always be unachievable for me, even if I wanted spend that much. Add that to the reports today on R2, that residuals are very strong now, the secondhand electric car market will not offer any comfort to many people either.......
