lol sure they won't grandad.

You know when gas central heating was introduced and the clear air act was brought in there was just as much nonsense then. 'There isn't enough capacity to give everyone a gas connection' 'coal is better' 'I'll never switch away from coal' etc. etc.

You will look just as silly in 10 years.

I'm not watching that video, but your title is incorrect.

Honda are no longer going ahead with a proposed plan to work with GM on a shared 'affordable EV platform', NOT That they are pulling stopping EV production altogether.

Can you expand on "EV's will never work in the UK" please.

That is quite an extraordinary statement which requires some serious evidence to support it.

Feel fre to post here all relevant material to support your claim, thanks.

Not sure you understood what the previous poster asked. Or maybe you can’t back up your claim.

And what does that have to do with your previous statements? Both my daughters have EV's and my wife has a hybrid. They have zero issues running their cars here in the UK using them every day of the week for work and pleasure.

Mind you now look at the mess we're in because the Government back then though Norh Sea gas would last for ever. We're buying in gas and electricity from abroad as we haven't invested in alternative energy enough.

47k miles in our Kona EV over the past 4½ years….at a total fuel cost of around £4.5k

Why have you posted such a ludicrous thread?
Do you need some help?

I don’t think he did: surely was just responding to the ludicrous OP statement of “At last someone with sense, EV's will never work in the UK.”

The point being that clearly EVs can and do work very well for many people in the UK.

I imagine the OP will quietly disappear, to return later with another disparaging thread based on fantasy!

Context - replying to first post, you've been here long enough to figure this surely?
