Re: Ban on new petrol and diesel cars in UK from 2030 under PM's green plan

Looking around at a Volvo garage I was in,the hybrids were on average around 20 K more expensive so financially no reason to go for it.

If I want to go fully electric then they have to chop down half a Forest and then dig up the mountain side to get at the Lithium and then figure out how to safely dispose of the battery when my car reaches end of life.I like forests and mountains so thatís not an option for me.

I read somewhere that just to manufacture an electric car has a greater CO2 output than a standard car manufacture.

I donít see the electric car we have today as the long term solution. Letís see if hydrogen or some other technology will gives us a proper solution.
