What a good idea. Will also give ex-drivers something to do when they make electric cars autonomous.

Never try and argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level, then beat you based on experience.

You referring to the fact that they breakdown a lot and don’t need to make a noise, just have static obstacle lights at night?

I’m assuming that they don’t have indicators (and therefore hazards) like the rest of the range :mrgreen:

Just read on the BBC website that the UK currently has no recycling facility for electric car batteries and any used, faulty or old batteries that have lost power are being sent abroad.

How green is that....dumb or what?

Tend to agree....like electric cars in the countryside, the BBC are a waste of space, only interested in promoting themselves these days.....but it is true...the UK cannot handle electric car battery recycling! Just checked elsewhere!
