So what you're saying is that your fossil car is not licensed? Because your car already is a state-monitored privilege that can be withdrawn.Or, as has been pointed out by someone sensible, they could get people to use economy 7 style systems - just like they already do.So your car ceases to be a personal convenience and becomes a state-monitored privilege that can be withdrawn. The communist dream: electric Trabants!
If they need their car to be topped up because they're making a long journey and they're willing to pay a premium, sure. Just like people pay more for petrol on motorways and A-roads. And, it's still cheaper than paying for petrol!QuotePeople WILL NOT be usually charging their cars at peak demand. People are using economy 7 or 10 because the electricity is half the priceSurely they will want to charge their cars as soon as they get home? My point is that this will create a new peak demand.
But most people prefer to pay less, and the car capacity is sufficiently large that it's not worth it. The whole point of Economy 7 etc. is to move demand to the early hours where electricity is plentiful and greener.
Except that's not actually sensible for cars because hydrogen costs a lot more all round, and there's heavy conversion losses.QuoteOf course the sensible thing to do would be to transport something like hydrogen or whatever- just like we do[ with oil.Agreed.
This seems to be roughly the state of the art, the hydrogen fuel costs four times as much per mile as electric vehicles:
