Quote from: JBR on October 01, 2023, 04:10:59 PMI wonder how long it will be before ALL owners of EVs sell them off for as much as they can get for them.Another fine idea of the government, scuttled by practicalities and common sense.Well, they've put off 2030 until 2035 in their desperation. I wonder what they'll do next.Gas-powered cars? Elastic band-powered cars? Pedal cars?

There is a lot in it for those providing a home for the wind turbines and those operating them. Certainly enough to use a portion of it to persuade our politicians what a great idea they are.

They are double the weight of a normal car and being mostly small wheel based, the burden of distribution has the same effect as Stiletto heels on soft flooring. Also if they catch fire (which happens not infrequently) they burn intensely and are most difficult to extinguish. Some Green newbies who bought with their hearts and not their heads are learning first hand the frightening cost of battery replacement as a capital item. They are worth bugger all secondhand too as most stateside vehicles cover much higher average mileages than the UK, so their faults on short range and re-charging have been exposed far faster. They eat tyres and suspension springs too.Many States are considering higher excise duties as they wreck roads, bridges, multi-story car parks etc, as well as their owners pockets. Personally I think they have all the crossed appeal of several hundred flash lights powering as oversized bathroom accessories.Unfortunately you have Grant 'Herr flick' Schapps and Caroline 'Greeny' Nokes with about 259 other vegan wets masquerading as Tories who seem obsessed with the damn things ...
