The BBC comments section is hatred and bile no matter what the subject is. It's moderated really badly for such a high profile site, and is frequently brigaded. I shouldn't read too much into it.Don’t think I want my car to stand out more than it does after reading the comments on the BBC site. The hatred and bile towards EVs and owners is off the scale.
Regardless, in real life I've just found people to be genuinely curious when they find out it's an EV. Having a green plate would just be another conversation starter to let you educate and fight the ignorance.
