Although the arguments will continue to rage, do not lose sight of the fact that oil companies will continue to profit from any fuel that keeps ICE going, together with its resultant pollution of the air we breathe. They are skilled at promotng false information and misleading facts. Check the science!
When class manufacturers like Audi get involved you can be sure EV is getting much better amd more exciting. The performance aspects of this model Are worth taking in sweet savoured sips. The video says it all.
Whilst over here in the UK, we are only just beginning to embark on the transfer to EV, a company called WAYMO has launched the first driverless service in Arizona, where you can order a car to come and collect you and take you and your family to your chosen destination.

In an independent break down of every aspect of the Tesla Model3 only the chassis came in for criticism, engineers saying it was expensively constructed. Other key features like the ekectric motor and batteries were groundbreaking.
There is no doubt that many people will be very reluctant to give up their beloved fossil fuel car, although, and for sure, one day, petrolheads will revere and indulge their favourite models with the same deep sense of pleasure now enjoyed by steam enthusiasts. But even the most ardent combustion lover cannot enjoy the depreciation and costs of motoring these days. Sharing car cost with electric vehicles is a great idea, and above all, helps reduce the number of cars on our roads, and those that are, increasingly then won’t be stuffing noxious fumes down our throats.
This week, the UK Government announced reductions in capital grants for Ecars. Clearly they believe the industry can now stand with less support and we think they are right.

Volkswagon have announced that they will price their new Ecars in line with their diesel range
And how about this electric whizz for getting around… a Stator self balancing electric scooter
