Rear hinged doors where taken off the road up here in 2004 so that's a concern.

We cant have proper leccy cars till the oil runs out

HMG make too much in Fuel duty and VAT

BP/Shell make millions per minute at the pumps

Ford/GM/PSA/VW have engine factories will billions invested....

work it out

The TX5 will operate on battery power until it runs out

Suicide doors as they where known, where band from all new cabs, when the tx2 came out, to many kids and adults where being ejected from the cabs , when they were moving, they would open the door and the wind would catch it and pull them out
