    This true, we are having problems at work sourcing new vehicles both ICE and electric, it's actually holding the business back.

    Jeeez, that's the price of a house.
    I love Hendrix for so many reasons. He was so much more than just a blues guitarist - he played damn well any kind of guitar he wanted. In fact I'm not sure if he even played the guitar - he played music. - Stevie Ray Vaughan

    My mate's last tipper truck cost his boss north of £150k. That was two years ago, and not electric. Apart from the heated massaging seat. And everything has gone dearer since then.

    Hope they can cope with long distances, last thing you need is those buggers sat on our smart motorways' non-existent hard shoulders with dead batteries.
