The trouble with BEVs is not necessarily the cars themselves, it's the infrastructure necessary to run them. It's all very well places putting in charging points, but where is the electricity to come from, when the National Grid is practically at breaking point now?

Unless the government decides to build a whole raft of new power stations, and declares that as it's in the national interest no objections will be listened to, I don't think BEVs will be more than a niche market for decades.

Where's your evidence that the National Grid is at breaking point?

Wobbly Box, you need to watch the film "Who Killed The Electric Car" Bob Lutz of GM features in that, he was a real dinosaur until the penny dropped!

Yep daveyjp, I don't think there will be a problem with electric supply as BEV's increase in numbers, especially as electricity storage solutions are now being put into place.

Colin, Tesla alone are churning out 8,000 BEV's each and every month, that's hardly a niche market, and from just one of many auto makers.

Trust me as we go past 2020, BEV's will be all over the place like a rash!.
