Let me see if I understand this correctly. While your EV is charging you entertain yourself watching videos of men changing batteries?I don’t think the battery swap thing is a great idea. Certainly not in this country. I’ve seen a few Bjorn Nyland vids where he tests the Nio ones and I’d much rather charge than that. Again it seems like a solution to appease people who don’t understand that you need to change how you refuel your car: once you switch to EV you’ll be amazed at what your concerns are. And it ain’t how long you are at a charger
I have proposed a plan for streets like yours. It's already been implemented in parts of London.The focus should have been on making diesel and/or petrol use cleaner without cooking the books (a la the emissions testing scandals)
EV's don't add up logistically pound for pound and our public transport infrastructure can't make up the difference anytime soon either.
I don't see how the 2030 deadline doesn't move, at least not for commercial vehicles.
There is a scheme at my new job for EV leasing that I cant take up as I live in a street house in Redcar. No drive, no garage and no charging points.certainly no guarantee I can park outside my own house even if I could fit a charger.
Infrastructure just isn't there for most people. I've not seen anyone propose a plan for streets like mine.
That looks like a lot but it really isn't. Look how much more densely packed the below map is. This is pubs in England.I have proposed a plan for streets like yours. It's already been implemented in parts of London.
So here's the thing: being able to charge at home makes EV a no brainer. But you don't have to have a home charger. I don't I get on fine. No way you should be making old, destructive technology cleaner when we now have an alternative.
Oh and the "infrastructure isn't there" argument? Yes it could be better, but here is a zapmap screenshot showing public chargers in England:

It could be more, I agree. It's still a lot though. And it's just a counterpoint to the other trope of "the infrastructure isn't there"
