    I always feel sad for those who are (or have been) less fortunate than me in life and love.

    Yep - I guess I'm fine. Just woke up too early, and as usual can't get back to sleep.

    Interested in Al's electric car - I've not kept up - which one is it?

    I have a Nissan Leaf , The 24KW version, White, I am enjoying the car , It's silent and just glides along , no gear changing

    Costs me £1 ish to charge according to my BG smart meter and I can cover 71 miles ( 3 trips too and from work ) very economical

    Love it

    We're gradually switching to electric. A Renault Zoe should arrive soon - though delivery seems to have been set back. We have a charging point.

    I ordered a Tesla Model 3 AWD, but I'm slightly p**d off with Tesla so might cancel. It's a nice car, but how nice does it have to be at the price?

    We're hoping that cars like these will go at least 200 miles, which is enough for us most days. Have to remember that they have to be able to get back, or to the next charging point. There's an interesting site at https://abetterrouteplanner.com/ which allows route planning to hopefully avoid problems.

    Woo nice a Tesler

    You can also use zapmap for charging points , The system / infrastructure will only get better

    Now tried most of the supposedly best offerings of Electric cars - though not the Leaf. One family member has a Leaf - says it's very good. I met someone a year or so back who had two. One he got cheap, as someone had screwed up the charging and b***d the electrics, so he bought it for £6k. Turns out he's an electrical engineer, so said it didn't cost much to fix - but probably for most of us a "Don't do this at home" job.

    If everybody switches to electric cars there won't be enough power to go round - to keep your computers or electric kettles going. [**1]

    Plug-in hybrids might be good. The Toyota Prius plug-in hybrid is really nice, and in theory should do a bit over 30 miles on pure electric. Depends on your driving patterns whether they are going to be useful. The Ioniq is quite good too, though I found the Prius easier to drive. As with pure EVs, if most people switch to plug-in hybrids (rather than EVs), there won't be enough electricity to go round.

    Otherwise, despite being fossil fuel beasts, regular hybrids might still be the best option for a while - see [**1] above, or even high efficiency petrol or diesel cars, but pollution problems - particularly for city centres - tend to counter against fossil fuels.

    I didn't know that there are any Toyota Mirai hydrogen cars in the UK, but I met someone who'd driven one a few days ago. Apparently the NHS uses them in Scotland to deliver between locations (hospitals?) in Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh and perhaps Glasgow. I guess they have the hydrogen fuel sorted out. Otherwise most of the hydrogen filling stations are in London. Overall hydrogen cars are I believe less efficient than electric ones, but considerably more efficient than gas guzzling fossil fuel burners, and pollution is low with those. Refuelling times should be low - comparible with filling with petrol or diesel.

    Apart from the possible dangers (I've mentioned those before - not sure how real they are) it would perhaps be sensible for some manufacturer to develop a hybrid hydrogen+electric plug in car - by which I mean using hydrogen as fuel, with electric power using batteries plus chargers. Such a combination could give long range as well as the kind of performance one gets from pure EV.
