What happens if a disabled person ICEs the near entrance ones?
Hopefully?? Disabled bays also available at convenient location?

Absolutely none of what you said makes any sense.
Not an original response was it Goshdarnit? You clearly disagree with me, but your inability to comprehend a suggestion is your problem, not mine.
I didn’t say I didn’t comprehend it. I said it didn’t make sense. A bad suggestion is a bad suggestion, regardless of who is reading it.
Well then it's a difference of opinion. Statements like that are not worth anything unless they are justified with an explanation.

Has anyone tried reverse ICEing?

Just park at a pump for a while :)

:o

Husqvarna AutoMower is what you need :)

My mower was knackered so had to be replaced and multiple AutoMowers was same price as a ride-on big enough to do the job in reasonable time, so cost-neutral for me, and I now save the mowing time of course.

But the best thing, which i hadn't anticipated, is that every morning when I go out the grass looks like it has just been cut :)

ICEing will always be an issue when the total number of Plug-In Electric cars in the UK is only around 220,000 out of a vehicle population of 38,000,000 cars on UK roads.

The growth is slow, with only around 35,000 added in 2019. That figure includes anything that plugs in, so a lot with 20 to 30 miles range. That total represents about 3% of total new car sales. Full Electric vehicle sales is less than 1%.

The average price of a full BEV is far too high for the average buyer. Giving £3,500 incentives to people who can afford a £70,000 car is not the right way to go.

The MG ZS EV at a price of £21,000.00 is starting to move the price down into a region that more people will be able to afford the choice of taking an EV rather than an ICE as their next new purchase. If the Government stopped grants on vehicles above £30,000 and gave a higher level of grant below that figure then perhaps it would encourage more people to buy a BEV ?

The other big issue is charging points, or the lack of. It is a chicken and egg issue. Industry isn’t going to do it until a big demand is there - People are not going to buy the cars in any big quantity until the perceived range anxiety is not a problem. To allow things to rapidly improve the Government needs to invest in the charger network.


So ICEing will continue until there are massively more BEVs on the road.

Not sure about that. The BEV needs to be capable of the distance that the users needs to travel.

I'd have no difficulty with matching Grant to Range ... so a higher range car got a bit more grant, so those that needed range were not penalised (as would be the case with "No grant over £30K")

having Luxury (Road) Tax on low-end EVs (which are still over the price threshold, not from luxury-interior, but rather expensive-battery) is a bit daft IMHO

I don't understand why majority of incentives seem to be for Company Cars (100% first year writeoff [although that is probably tax-neutral after car is sold] , 0% BiK, and no BiK on charge-at-work) and not for individuals? Maybe easier/cheaper to implement the incentives, or uptake is faster if incentivise Company Fleets rather than individuals?
To allow things to rapidly improve the Government needs to invest in the charger network.
Apologies for repeating myself, but I think Government should assist in the number of stalls installed. Ionity putting 2 and 4 stalls in is SUCH a short term measure.
