2040

New petrol and diesel cars banned in UK from 2040

This will have huge implications going far beyond clean air, I wonder if the experts have calculated the demand on on the national grid, we will certainly need more power production to accommodate this, the network infrastructure will need upgrading including down to street level.

Interesting times ahead.

Re: 2040

We live in a pedestrian area , no vehicle access at all , charge my car , motorbike etc

Not a chance.

Those houses with three or more cars on their driveway , national grid will be borked.

As for tower blocks ?

Re: 2040

They are only proposing a ban on new fossil fuel powered cars. It gives plenty of time to upgrade the infrastructure, particularly if they take the US model and make the cheating, polluting manufacturers pay for charging stations.

Re: 2040

Listening to news this morning, the justification seemed to be based upon effect on health and early death rates from car emissions. An "expert" was questioning the maths, but, lets assume they are motivated by the welfare of the population; it begs the question, why not ban cigarettes in the same way and using the same rationale?

Re: 2040

Charging stations , where will you have to drive to and park for hours to charge , rapid charge kills battery packs , how many 1 ton battery packs will the AA carry to start flat car packs.

Whatever you do don't use air con or the blown air element heater systems , with your lights on in a traffic jam.

I know fusion power pellets and a water boiler.

Re: 2040

So what will happen to petrol/diesel stations and their employees? This will go back a long way into the employment chain.

Hypothetically I suppose every house will be fitted with a charging point (?), somewhere within their property. However, if you have to park your car say 50 yards from your house, how do you connect up? Use the point in the house you are parked outside of?

All I can say is that by this time (2040) I envisage that I will be too old to drive and therefore not affected. Oh, wait a minute - I still have to use a bus. Will these still be in existence? I have a vision of the local bus station full of buses that cannot be used because they are still "charging" their batteries (or whatever they will use).

I think this proposed legislation is a bit cloud cuckoo land. Too much effect which has not been taken into consideration.

There will not be charging stations as such

Already under trial are roadways which as you pass over without stopping auto recharge your batteries

About the same hassle as driving onto a petrol station forecourt only without having to stop and fill it up

Well to be fair the test track is in Germany but my great Uncle and decorated war hero who lives near the facility keeps me posted on these matters

Wired-up roads will soon charge your electric car ? while you're driving
Mate , in the UK we cannot even electrify the rail network , let alone the roads , diesel trains , still our future.

Rail electrification plans scrapped by government - BBC News
