Transport Secretary Grant Shapps has spoke out to reassure motorists that the government is not wanting to “demonise” drivers following the Prime Mini

every week it appears there are new headlines about cars /vans etc
the whole thing is ill thought out and unrealistic
we as an established garage are unable to recruit let alone train anybody to work in our business
the collage schemes are 20 years out of date
the mechanics we have are telling us that they do not want to work on electric cars
the charging network in our area is not present
instead of trying to push electric,why do we as a country not develop synthectic fuels that will keep the present vehicles on the road thus being much more cost effective and green ?????
does any one have an answerJuly 16, 2021 at 8:36 am #214921DougalGuest
So if after the ban begins you buy and register a new petrol vehicle in a country where they are still available are you able a week later to import it as a used vehicle?July 16, 2021 at 10:12 am #214922Neil SkuseGuest
Going to need a massive investment in infrastructure and training for this to be realistic-then what do you do with all the toxic battery’s and vehicles at end of life.
For me Petrol-Diesel running correctly can produce very limited emission’s. The big issue is the human being not keeping his vehicle maintained correctly.July 16, 2021 at 5:22 pm #214924JoshGuest
