What do you see as the problem?
I expect that before 2030 there will be an induction charging system installed under roads so that vehicles are being continuously charged to get over the range problem.
The downside of this could be that criminals may target the induction charging cables as scrap metal.

After accruing massive debt from the Pangolin flu pandemic do you seriously think there is any chance of that.

By 2030 I expect the car Industry will have persuaded the government that Hydrogen fuel cells are the way to go once we have all bought Hybrids and we will all be being urged to ditch electric in favour of fuel cells! SO that the Gerries and the Frogs can import loads of cars which they have perfected but our industry can't supply thus killing off the last remnants of our car industry

Whatever happened to that guy who invented a battery in his shed that could do 900 miles on one charge? I was the same size as a normal car battery. He was going to re-invent the Austin brand, he had backers in the UK, he seems to have gone quiet.

I suspect he is on a beach on his own island paid for by the big oil companies.

Whatever happened to Metrocab?? Last I heard they’d won the court case against LEVC and had £300m in investment from a Chinese firm (red sun or something like that) then there was another court case for bankruptcy,(I think it was the Fraser Nash side of things) never heard the outcome and never heard of them again
