That's already very far from the truth, you can guarantee that at least 40% of the energy used in running an EV will be from renewables. That's not something you can say about diesel or petrol.

I'd say it's simply a matter of math, for most people it will be vastly cheaper to run and own than ICE.

Got any math to back that up? If you're having to use the rapid chargers they can be more ...

So there is a case that the initial EVs that are now appearing as second hand cars are worst examples of EVs? Because this will make me hold my on turning to EV for even longer.

Why do you want an ...

So I've been thinking, since I can only afford second hand cars, that I will have to wait until the second hand EV market is affordable to me..

But a relative recently bought a second hand EV and f ...

Has anyone actually looked into the proposed/actual law?

I've seen the odd comment that anyone who builds off road parking/garage etc must include charging infrastructure but I can't find any actua ...

Why wouldn't 2x3Kw be enough? 12 hours of charging is 36kwh which is in excess of 100 miles range surely?

change is driven by what works for 95% of people though. It's not a matter of right or wrong fair on unfair.

It's not 95% though is it? It'll be the wealthy 50% if it's anything like fast broadband ...
