Re: EV the future ?

It is reported that EV sales are ever increasing say over Diesels but I can get a Petrol or Diesel but not Electric so where are they all coming from, or is it just sales without buyers actually taking ownership? :-k

Re: EV the future ?

Well it must be my part of the country - I stopped at an Hyundai dealer to have look at an AWD IONIC 5 Electric which are circa £42K - £53K they haven`t got one not even a petrol version and they are quoting possibly 12 months delivery but not sure! :roll:

What a joke! :lol:

Last night driving along the Ring Road in Coventry a Lexus IS500 F Sport passed me and the driver booted it going under a bridge Jesus I don`t kn...

Re: EV the future ?

I have a driveway but we've been told we're not allowed charge points in our village (had my head in an engine bay when the neighbours told me so can't remember why 😂 something about being a protected area i think) and am sure we're not the only one so no idea what the plan there is supposed to be ...

Re: EV the future ?

A third of UK homeowners don’t have a driveway or garage to install a home charge point, on-street chargers make up a quarter of the UK charging network but the majority are in London, in Coventry that figure rises to 50% of homes that do not have off street parking and the council have just announc...

Re: EV the future ?

Considering that in just over 7 years time you will supposedly not be able to buy any new ICE car do we think within that timescale EV prices will become more acceptable and a much improved efficient infrastructure to provide for EV`s will be in place.

Re: EV the future ?

I wonder if these smart chargers will be tamper proof/unhackable. :-k

I have read somewhere there could possibly be a curfew certain times when you will not be able to charge your car.
They really are not making a good case in the future to go electric from what I can see. #-o

Can you ever have enough green?!!!!

Even in the Middle Ages "Green" was revered by nobility nearly as much as "Gold" - even if it was only Percy!
