Charged on a free full charge yesterday, arrived at Keswick today & whacked it on at the site when we arrived, free of charge..
£220 a month for a Hyundai Kona on the NHS scheme everything included, basically just need to charge it.
Saving us around £150 a month at least compared to a couple of months ago,
Absolutely amazing to drive too, just lucky the Mrs works for who she does.

Hello Steve
 
Wishful thinking I'm afraid.
Even the government is predicting that 50% of cars on the road by 2030 will still be ICE. Don't forget that hybrids are being allowed until 2035. It'll be 2050 at earliest when petrol stations might become rare.

Many industry leaders are expressing similar concerns to myself. If these challenges can be overcome, then great if not then 2nd hand petrol cars will keep their value

There just been an interview on 5live about the aviation industry and currently there’s is no alternative.
there’s a few eco aware on here and I wonder wonder when their last flight was and when do they expect their last flight to be.

You ll get used to it. I was like you. Not stopping etc. Got VW ID4. Best car I have ever driven. Love pulling in to charge the car in and spend me time on my own reading a book or on my phone. Those 40 minutes helps me to say have a break as I’m always on the go.
I don't want to stop off every 2 hours for 45 mins to charge when I'm on a long trip, it's just not practical.
As herbal mentioned above, he did 1 stop on a trip to Cornwall. With an EV, it would add 2 or 3 hours onto the journey using the affordable 150 mile range cars

I've explained several times, the price gap between a EV & ICE cars won't come close to being offset by fuel savings unless you do a serious amount of milage. For myself & millions of others the whole set up is very cost prohibited.

After 2030 it'll entirely depend on uptake of vehicles. The government are hoping the private sector fill the gap, but the private sector won't do it until the demand is there, and the public won't buy into until the infrastructure is there. Its catch 22. It wouldn't surprise me if 50% of road cars were stil petrol come 2030
