Had a think about it but because I’m not really that interested in cars and generally just took what company offered or whatever just happened along I can’t remember specific models. But at a guess:
  • A Simca rally (shared with my brother)
  • an escort;
  • a Sierra;
  • a couple of rover 200s:
  • a rover 400;
  • a laguna;
  • a peugeot 307
  • a golf
  • a 3 series;
  • a 3 series tourer;
  • a Peugeot 206;
  • a couple of polos;
  • a qashqai;
  • a Ford Fusion
  • and a new golf.
Exciting eh..current cars are last two...the fusion is my mobile locker and does little more than take me the three miles to the golf club and the three miles back.

It will happen long term 100%

Only the cost of batteries holding back and they are dropping rapidly

Manufacturers are keeping the prices high ATM soon they won't have a choice

They cost less to run and break down less over the lifetime

Just have to get the charging network fully up and running
Plus what will the government/local councils do about home charging. I can think of quite a few roads just in the village where I live where that would be impossible without a major infrastructure rebuild.

There a few videos about massive charge only fuel stations and shell said all their forcourts will be split electric and petrol

So as charging speed increases they will have it so say 5-10 mins tops you up enough just like refueling

I've just put down a deposit for a Toyota GR Yaris CP (arrives May '22). Despite no test drive yet, I'm in for a proper treat if all the reviews are true.

You are going to struggle for credibility in the worst car ever owned thread.
