Ten years ago the Leaf was the only EV available. It cost £31,000 and went 73 miles according to the EPA. Ten years is a long way off, and we are only taking about new cars, not second hand.In light of today's news we've been thinking about what stands in the way between us right now and making the 2030 ban a reality.
We think the biggest barriers are:
- Reducing the price of EVs
- Improving EVs ranges
- Developing the charging infrastructure
- Changing drivers' mindsets
Interested to hear if you agree/disagree or what other barriers you think we need to overcome
Yes, buying a new car may be more expensive from 2030. That's just a reality. It will also be worth more when you sell it. Hopefully it means less new cars are sold overall, and that we collectively maintain and keep them for longer.
