Sure you`ve heard Boris had announced that new Petrol, Diesel and Hybrids will not be allowed to be sold in UK in 15 years :cry:

Cant help this mean in reality manufacturer will move to electric 5 years ahead of this date.......manufacturing lead times, factory set up etc.....

Just wonder how this will effect supply of petrol etc.....

Just think of all those flat battery cars in the slow lane of the smart motorways ..... miles from a charge point :roll:

Can anyone seriously believe that we will have the infrastructure in place to facilitate this ??!!!

All the time petrol and diesel is available you can shove your electric cars as far as ......

Meanwhile back on planet Earth .....

Last time I checked there are at least 35 million vehicles on the roads in this country... private cars, commercial vehicles, buses, taxis motorbikes etc... it's going to take a gargantuan effort to provide enough charging infrastructure for a similar amount of electric vehicles.

My first vehicle was pedal powered. By 2035 my last vehicle may be electrically powered but I suspect it will be a mobility scooter. Younger people are already preparing themselves for 2035 by donning lycra and getting fit. Wasn't it Moulton who created a fold up bike. Just right should the battery fail on a motorway and the brake and hazard lights don't work.
I think i'll enrol for a Meldrew training course soon. :lol:
During my career I was trained to "set targets which were achievable." But that was many years ago! What do us oldies know?

There won't be no need for charging infrastructure in the way people think . This will absolutely happen . I have a mate who is very high up at dunton reasearch centre who has been working on self charging . So basically it will work like this : There will be two banks of battery's in a car and let's say the car has a 250 mile range . The car will run on one bank of battterys and before that bank of battery's has gone flat the charging system will have the ability to fully charge the other bank of battterys . A safe battery pack wth a acceptable lifespan and electro magnification amongst the problems . Sitting in a small power station may not be the best thing for health ... ken

Boris Johnson will be an unpleasant memory in 15 years time.

Ignore the fool.

Sounds like a perpetual motion machine to me.

Well, that all sound fine, but more of a "DREAM". What about existing car owners? They will go for another 10 years, unless the goverment demands scrappage, but there again, another "DREAM"
