Every dwelling has an electricity supply entry point,it would be possible to fit an outdoor charging point into the outside wall of a lot of multiple occupancy buildings.
The main problem would be parking while charging in some areas.

I saw my second Tesla today. A white model S going along the Embankment in London. I pulled up behind it driving a bed red Routemaster bus.

Teslas really are getting quite prolific now, that's the second one I've seen in just three years!

Working in and around Manchester, Liverpool, Leeds I spot at least one Model "S" each day, and maybe a couple of Model "X" each week, so not quite as common as a Fiat 500 just yet.

Although that is set to change with the much lower priced Model "3" come next year.

Anyone considering buying a BEV in the next year or two, will be mad not to have gone for the Tesla Model "3" based on the the battery tech alone.

Although the Kia Niro BEV makes for a very good second choice for those that can't wait for the Tesla.

The Kia will give 301 mile range, and will be at least £5k less than the 310 mile Tesla, so the Kia is a very worthy compromise.

Both the Kia and Tesla are available with a smaller 200 mile battery pack, so further savings can be had, although I think the auto makers should not give a battery pack size option, and just produce the longest range version that they can.

I don't know where you are getting your figures from, but they have just installed a hydrogen station in Abergaveny, and that didn't cost millions. And there are several in London.
Is this more of your anti-fossil fuel tirade?

And this car is on the road and the second one currently under construction
https://www.riversimple.com/the-design-of-the-rasa/
All developed and built in Mid Wales!



They could replace or supplement existing fuel stations,after all some sell lpg.
Plug ins difficult for those do not have parking by their houses,can't have cables across the pavements!
Coud be annoying if yu are stuck in your expensive BEV at motorway service waiting for a slot on charge point!

LPG storage tanks aren't designed to stand the very high pressure required for Hydrogen storage tanks.
The problem of cable access across pavements could be overcome by the installation of drainage channel ducts with removable covers.

There is no law forbidding running cables across pavements provided they are adequately protect physically and visually.

Easy, just get one of those rubber trunking matts and just hope no one else has parked outside your terraced property. Always have a spare 100 meters or so of cable and trunking.

I really donít know why some of you keep putting sensible, common sense problems in the way! It is simple in some peopleís world.

Some councils are providing charging bays in streets of terraced houses that are only available for charging EVs.
During my working life my approach to a problem was to identify the problem and then look for a solution,that attitude doesn't appear to be prevalent among the ICE enthusiasts.
The attitude of some appears to be,in the words of private Frazer,"we're doomed I say we're doomed"

Always worth a watch is "Who Killed The Electric Car" I thought what happened to GM's EV1, which was the first BEV to go into mass production back in 1996, with it's Lead Acid and later NiMH battery pack, giving 100 mile range.

Nearly all of the EV1 cars produced, some 2,237 units were recalled 4 years later and crushed!

Even if money was no object, I personally would even think about buying a BEV until they had been mass-market for at least 10 years, but that's just me. I tend to be like that with most new technologies. Let someone else do the product-testing and quality-control, then if they are any good and all the bugs have been ironed out, I'll think about getting one. Good job everyone's not like me eh?
