Not quite sure why this has to wait until 2030. This seems like something they could do immediately.

Got a few housing sites in the Midlands that are already putting them in every new build.
The wife's brother-in-law works for Western Power, he says there's no chance the grid can cope with anything like is being predicted.

It’ll be easy, they can just build a bunch of coal fired power stations. 😳

In a little article in last week's Autocar Porsche's Macan Product Manager said that 2024 is the current end date for the Macan ICE. If that is correct then side by side production of electric and petrol Macans will only be for around twelve months.

Interesting article about problems with supply when we all go electric, or even half of us.

The issue with electrification is not so much the power stations as the cables under our roads, with the loads required they'll start melting the tarmac above!
