Quote from: paulinfrance on August 07, 2017, 11:39:03 amQuote to biga,I'm not sure what everyone is worried about, it's only a ban on conventional petrol and diesel powered vehicles, Oh come off it, so I have to bin my 407 diesel and fork out a car big enough for my 'toys', at least 40.000€ ! and throw my V 8 Jag engine away and put a brushless motor in it,, and what about my motor bikes ! what ever you do now is too little too late, so lets just burn the planet up, like the yanks, Chinese and Indians do,,,
Quote from: itsme on August 07, 2017, 13:02:32 pm I see the new Mini factory is to be electrics only. [/url]
Quote from: FrankS on August 07, 2017, 13:38:19 pmI hadn't seen that, can you post a link, the article I'd read was that the Oxford plant was going to build the electric mini together with the IC versions on the same line.
Quote from: Phil_G on August 07, 2017, 15:46:26 pmI think the next major step will be not to store electricity in batteries at all, but to generate it on the fly, there are many fledgling technologies any of which could make it to 2040.Interesting times
Quote from: Big A on August 07, 2017, 14:59:48 pmIts not happening until 2040!! Very much doubt your 407 diesel will still be running and by then all new vehicles will already by either hybrid or electric anyway, also they atent banning the existing conventional I/C from being used. Its a complete non issue.Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
Quote from: paulinfrance on August 07, 2017, 16:54:30 pm Why not, I see regularly old Peugeots on the road, this one from 1898 !

Quote from: Big A on August 07, 2017, 17:10:10 pmWell if it is still running you can still use it they arent banning them just the sale of new ones.Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
Quote from: paulinfrance on August 07, 2017, 18:09:24 pm It is already illegal to drive both of my cars in Paris, Bordeaux, Grenoble and Lyon on high pollution days, so it's only a matter of time when I can only run it in my garage, with or without a hose,,
Quote from: ludwig on August 23, 2017, 19:06:27 pmVW are to bring out a modern version of their famous Combi-Wargen, (motor home) which will be electric only. Can't wait.
Quote from: paulinfrance on August 24, 2017, 11:48:42 amThanks IDD15, it only confirms my lust for internal combustion cars, I consumed a couple of 'espresso's' to keep me from nodding off during the video so if I got it right,1, It costs around 24.000€ to ruin a Porsche ( I don't like them anyway ) 2, For that on 'eco mode' you get 200 miles from a night's charging3, Acceleration is like 'going down hill' 4, It's good for parking.5, it's 'sensible driving' It sounds like a lot of drivel to me, so maybe a Renault twizy would be more fun, or my electric push bike, or even a Singer sewing machine,,, I rest my case "Again" !

Quote from: itsme on August 24, 2017, 12:17:47 pmThe ONLY sensible option at the moment is dual fuel. Those will still be sold in 2040. By then, I assume new technologies will be online. Fusion is now becoming feasible.
Quote from: kinverflyer on August 24, 2017, 16:59:26 pmCan some one answer me this how much CO2 is created in getting the necessary materials out of the ground to make these batteries vs the getting the materials for petrol or diesel?
