    Re: The proposed ban on the sale of new petrol/diesel cars in 2030.

    I love running my hybrid Beta coupe... it has a 12v battery and a really efficient 1600 engine that does 47.8mpg on a run , she is 41 yrs young, now tax exempt and saving the planet as I have been running it for 23 years as a daily and have no desire to buy a 'modern' , how many 'moderns' have been binned in the last 23 yrs? a criminal waste of resources & energy.

    That Kevin Czinger bloke has the right idea, how hard can it be to make a Busso run on hydrogen?

    I believe the main problem with hydrogen is the conversion process is hugely inefficient in both directions (creating it and converting it back to electricity) so you really need cheap/free electricity to make it viable. I also don't think fuel cells can generate the power required to run a powerful electric motor so we aren't going to see hydrogen sports cars for a while (fuel cell / super capacitor combo maybe)
    But I may be biased - I have a Tesla 3

    Tesla have looked at Cobalt mining and Lithium production and determined that Cobalt mining is a nightmare and Lithium production is very inefficient.
    So Cobalt is no longer being used in their latest batteries.
    They have an entirely new method for producing Lithium that is very green.
    The batteries are designed to be recycled.
    The peoples Tesla is a couple of years away.
    Urban car ownership will decline considerably when RoboTaxis roam the streets. They will be like Uber but without a driver. The cost will be a fraction of the current Uber cost.
    In terms of driver enjoyment. I absolutely love my Tesla. It overtakes like my Hayabusa.
