Default Why Lectric cars will never cut it

Come on then Primarkurs or Telstar whatever they are called, lets see you cut the mustard.

This is why they will never have soul

Certainly the sound track will be way off the mark, but i'm now working on an electric hyper car and will be moving onto another next year which look stunning, mind you one will be 2.5million the other 3.5million so we'll never own them. There are people who are getting vintage cars converted to electric so they can drive them anywhere, the future is electric, i'm sure horses felt the same when the internal combustion engine was invented lol

Nice and affordable then, like the 55k or whatever lectric MGA on show last weekend

I know something different will take over, no doubt, but lets see why you preferer our IC vehicles and always will over a wizzy scalaletric noise

If you were a horse, would you prefer the internal combustion engine, or a change in french eating habits?

Let's assume that they solve the problems relating to;
The range of a battery (currently 100-150 miles)
The cost of purchasing the EV (currently 25k-100k)
The ability to charge in the street
Then the next problem is that if we could replace 26m internal combustion engines with EV then the National Grid infrastructure would need to be upgraded
and then we would need to build 6 nuclear powered generating stations to feed the grid (we have agreed to build one in the last twenty years)
