How foolish is the idea of banning petrol cars from the market.
The electric cars need to be charged.

Whatever time it takes, in France, where a good deal of energy comes from their nuclear power plants, it would mean 60% of whatever the O2 emission mean.
China , 120% of that.

In China, the largest car market, do the same, that energy would come from coal burning, 120% of electric car emission.

Skies over France or Germany won't be any clearer. Whatever EU aparatchiks agree to, is a plain stupidity.

Not a car but this seemed a relevant thread, Honda are producing an electric PCX scooter from next year:

Jaguar Land Rover to make only electric or hybrid cars from 2020

https://www.theguardian.com/business/20 ... -cars-2020

Carmaker follows Volvo in spelling an end for petrol or diesel-only cars, despite not making any electric vehicles at present.

Jaguar Land Rover has become the latest large carmaker to say it will stop launching new models solely powered by internal combustion engines, two months after Volvo pledged to do so.

The plan comes after the Scottish government said it would phase out the need for petrol and diesel cars by 2032, eight years earlier than the UK and French targets of banning sales of new cars with internal combustion engines.

Dr Ralf Speth, JLR’s chief executive, said: “Every new Jaguar Land Rover model line will be electrified from 2020, giving our customers even more choice.”
But Speth also warned of the unintended consequences of the electrification of cars and arrival of autonomous vehicles. The UK’s 250,000-plus lorry drivers are at risk from driverless technology, with knock-on effects for the UK’s social fabric, he said.

“In the UK, there are currently more than a quarter of a million lorry drivers. What happens to our society if these lose their jobs? Who pays for them? What happens to the social fabric of the country?”

Furthermore, electric cars’ impact on petrol and diesel demand could hurt oil-producing nations, Speth said. “Many could be forced to impose substantial spending cuts within the next five years, straining living standards and so creating unrest in areas already suffering from instability,” he added.

Electric cars and self-driving cars are both evolving at the same time but they are separate issues.
