When new the battery life on my Samsung mobile phone was three days, after two years use it won't last out the day. Someone remind me the cost of replacement EV batteries.  I must go, my bat

Official range is 244 miles but driving normally (ie as if you stole it) the real world range is more like 150.   Mine is 10 years old and 100K, range has dropped by perhaps 10 miles.   It still

BMW are taking BEV's seriously, they've pre-sold a huge amount of Mini's. Current trend is for electric cars now to be much more like their ICE counterparts rather than the quirky looking iterations to date. VW/Vauxhall/Pug are all doing the same too.

Not all good news for EV's. Just as long as they then don't start to burn from an accident as the Fire Brigade just stand back and watch them burn as they know there is nothing that they can do.

That's not much different to the petrol at motorway service stations. You'd have to be an idiot or using someone else's money. I don't think I've used a motorway services petrol station in my life!

I'm sure you could buy literally anything.

@Bibs your point falls down as we might not buy at that price we know thousands do every day. That's why they charge that much. People are stupid.

Most stupid people buy a BEV. Obviously imho

Hmmm 🤔.....

Paying more for something which is easily obtainable cheaper elsewhere could be considered stupid.

Buying something that is more inconvenient for you to use could be considered stupid.

Buying something that will costs you more to run and maintain could be considered stupid.

Buying something which is not suitable for your needs could be considered stupid.

Doing things which may harm you could be considered stupid.

Buying something that is harmful to the environment and/or others could be considered stupid (and perhaps selfish).

An inability to find solutions to problems could be considered stupid.

A failure to adapt to changing circumstances and differing needs  could be considered stupid.

Repeatedly doing something, or choosing something', merely because 'that's the way you've done it before, and failing to investigate alternatives, could be considered stupid.

Advancing inappropriate correlations.........
