CrashBox Posted June 26, 2017 Report Share Posted June 26, 2017 Crashbox, cost isn't always the main issue. For example the Nissan Leaf barely has a charge capacity that will get if from Yell to Lerwick and back. Good for banging around city centres, rubbish if you live anywhere that involves a reasonable amount of travel.Early days, and there are improvements all the time. The technology in use today is very much in its infancy. In the next 10 years the majority of new cars sold will be pure electric, and they will have a range of 300+ miles. Don't dismiss it yet. Orkney produces well over 100% of its power needs from renewables, mainly wind, and the council are actively encouraging the residents to swap to EVs. Can't understand why that isn't the case here in Shetland. We have no need to be connected to the national grid for 'our benefit'.
