Servicing on a BEV, is a fraction of that for a fossil car, no oil to be changed and brake disc pads will no doubt last the life of the car due to regen.
You would think that but for the Tesla the cost of servicing is a lot higher then even for my Lexus Hybrid which had both a large petrol engine and electric system .. for what if there is less to service?

They are quite spacious,been in several taxis.They make sense for a taxi as being hybrid they don't have to be off the road while recharging.I believe they do a plug in BEV too.
Don't float my boat
If more and more people go electric cannot see free road tax lasting.
On subject of electric vehicles,I am surprised trolley buses are not being brought back. Modern electric motors more efficient, plus it would be cheaper to put the overhead cabling in than trams,which need rails and overhead cables.
In my opinion bin HS2 and spend the money on improving commuter lines,trams etc.

Yep good old Elon can ship them over here for storage.
Then after a while can stick up a sign that everyone is welcome at the discount car supermarket.
You could pick yourself up a bargain Francais, it might just pull that diddy trailer.
It's a no brainer.

As well is two words!
How does a sage know everything about everything? or does he? or does he just think he does?
