Re: Petrol & diesel vehicles ban.

I know someone who did a bit of consulting for this lot. Seems promising, refill in minutes at a filling station just like you do now. It's quiet and clean so what's not to like? It might come to nothing but it shows where there's a will there's a way and that there are alternatives.

Cheers

Dave

No more so than riding two abreast, jumping red lights, weaving, ignoring cycle lanes and hogging the centre of the road; all skills acquired by the experienced cyclist to manage traffic .

Yep, there are alternatives but it's going to take some doing weaning people off the petrol/diesel tit.

Interesting idea if it works, and is powerful enough.

And the point that technology advances in ways we can't forecast, using those examples, obviously whooshed over your head like the morning flight to London (hope this helps refill your sarcasm reservoir, which is probably co-located with your bile repository...).

It's an inventive way of keeping you awake at the wheel old timer although it probably makes you dribble a bit more.

Re: Petrol & diesel vehicles ban.

I reckon we're going to see a VHS v Betamax style competition in the market and someone's going to wind up losing a lot of money which customers will ultimately pay for.

Whatever options there are, installing the required infrastructure is going to be a massive task and those involved will want to be sure they have some realistic prospect of a return on their money. With all the usual governmental dithering and regulatory burdens (e.g. health & safety, planning etc.) to be considered I can see this turning into a costly debacle. It takes a whole lot longer to implement ideas than to come up with them and there's a real risk that by the time it's done the technology installed is obsolete.

but vhs and betamax were overtaken and replaced by stealing movies off the internet

will there be the theft of fuel/power option from these charging points
