Electric vehicles “here to stay”, garages told

The UK’s vehicle servicing and repair sector has been told to “be ready” for electric vehicles as the list of mainstream vehicle manufacturers making a pledge to ‘go all-electric’ continues to grow.

Both Ford and Jaguar Land Rover set out plans last week to electrify their entire model line-ups.

Steve Nash, chief executive officer at the IMI said: “The move to EVs isn’t a flash in the pan.

“It’s here to stay and we all need to be ready.

“This week, Jaguar Land Rover set out its plans to electrify its entire line-up. Land Rover will have its first electric vehicle by 2024 and by 2030, 60 per cent of Land Rovers sold will be EVs, whilst the Jaguar brand could be 100 per cent electric by as early as 2025.

“The company is also investing in hydrogen technology.

“That’s enormous news for the UK automotive sector.

“It’s time to grab the bull by the horns and make the move.”

Ford’s first all-electric cars are expected to start rolling off the production line in 2023, using VW’s modular electric drive platform, and has confirmed that its entire range and will only sell electric cars from 2030.

Jaguar Land Rover said its Jaguar brand will be go all-electric by 2025.

    Errr errrrr being being errr round 100 errr years. Ok so why
    After 100 years do we need electric cars?

    4) errr errrr urrrm no, no eerr mention of why the imi are errr umm or
    Pushing the government for errrrr electric urrrrrm carrrs.

    5) if you errr look on eeer “companies house” at err filing history
    Where it says “directors Renumeration” err over errum
    £200k for imi directors and £400k profit after err tax

    6) no errr mention of where that tom Denton (who has blocked me on twitter – unprofessionally). Gets his information from?! ok err we all err know

    Ha ha. If you own a Hyundai Kona Electric or Hyundai Ioniq, do not charge your EV batteries above 90% capacity, and contact Hyundai local office.
