As far as I know, petrol and diesel cars are not banned from 2030, only the sale of them so you could in theory buy one and run it. However, things could change by then.
That’s my understanding. No sales after a given date.
I think sales will go downhill rapidly after around 2025. After all who will want to buy something that’s effectively going to be banned. Who will want to end up with an out of date product that very few will buy from them as the years tick by.
Jags Ipace and numerous others no doubt prove the EV is viable. 300 mile real world range and short charge times.... We can hope and expect that prices will get realistic...
Im not going to claim I understand the technological aspects of these new generation cars but I’m happy to go with the flow... If of course I’m still here and driving. 🤪🤪🤪
For when the one great scorer comes to mark against your name he marks not that you won or lost but how you played the game.
I think the main issue at least at the moment is charging infrastructure (as well as of course price). Friends of ours got the Kia Niro all electric as they are mainly going locally. They were planning a trip to Devon with family once lockdown is over and he was looking at driving the E Niro there. He followed someone on youtube that tried it and had to have 4 stage backup plans in case charging points are not working -at times plan C was used as lots of charging station are not working. That not how you promote electric cars I think. I suggested to them to use their old Getz to get there.
That's the thing isn't it. 2030 is the headline date right now. What will actually happen in 9 years time is anyone's guess.
It'll be interesting to see how it all pans out. Millions and billions of ICE vehicles aren't suddenly going to become obsolete (lorries don't run on batteries yet), oil companies ain't going to suddenly stop producing oil (just as well for the treasury!!) and charge points ain't suddenly going to appear on every street corner.
I'm all for moving on, but watch 2030 become 2035, become 2040 as subsequent governments realise; a)it was easy to give a date, b)implementing said date is actually quite tricky...hmmm, there's a surprise
