From 2040 all sales of new petrol and diesel cars will cease in the UK.

What do you think of this?

Yep but what about in another 10years time 2050 when the batteries need replacing what's going to happen to them
Reminds me of nuclear power and how cleaner it was than coal but how wrong that was
But I don't think it will make a difference to me to old lol

With any luck, EDF and the Chinese will have built Hinkley Point and Sizewell nukes by then - and dealt with all the snagging issues - and electricity will be so expensive an electric car will be a luxury for the rich only (oh, and politicians of course). Can anyone really believe a word any UK government says in the past 40 years or so? What is going to happen with planes and ships?
