    The price cap is the equivalent here of round $3,500 per year - I'd have a fit if I got anywhere near there!

    Just doing some quick calcs - electricity is around 20p per KWh over there at the moment so the 40 quid should get you around 200KWH or at 30KWh per 100 miles around 660 miles. We could say that's around 1.5 tankfuls of petrol in a small car (which almost all of them have) which would be 135 quid so yeah, I don't think their maths stacks up on being half the price - more like 'under a third' which is about what you'd expect IMO.

    Lucid Air Grand Touring Performance




    Lucid Motors announced that with a time of 50.79 seconds, the Lucid Air Grand Touring Performance was named the fastest production car in the Hillclimb Timed Shootout at the 2022 Goodwood Festival of Speed, where the new model made it first public appearance.

    Not surprised really. Getting the Stig to drive it was cool

    Towing ICE and EV F150

    For a second I had hoped Happily Solid state battery and Hydrogen will make a Discos replacement one day. The f150 lighting is not bound for Australia anyway. We get all the OLD tech dumped here first.

    Another KIck to EV- no standard Charge possition

    More than a few public charge point install make charging difficult. Some make it impossible unless you break road rules to access them to charge. One example is at 165 Liebig St, Warrnambool VIC 3280. It is just beside a roundabout, has double lines preventing crossing the lines to access the charger. The charge position not really suitable to any car which has a charge point at the front or not right at the back.

    No standards make it a mess I think. It is Governments needing to jointly agree I think. This is not a kick at Warrnambool Councils or others helping by install Charge points before standards exist!https://www.thedrive.com/news/why-the-k ... sual-place

    It is not just MG either. A Ford EV ute F150 Lightning charge point would be almost impossible at several places. Same for Rivian RT1.

    Standards like CCS are helpful for everyone. Even Teslar is joining that party No problem if the change it to have them all at the back side or front. Just the consistency to avoid foreseeable problems.

    Old e rickshaws have lead acid batteries. Donít know about new erickshaws but probably lead acid also.

    So probably not lithium related.

    Regards PhilipA
    Btw the reason I know about old e rickshaws is that they use them at the Taj Mahal to ferry passengers from the bus park. I was surprised to see tuk tuks with batteries in the back.

    I would have thought lead acid would be far less likely to cause a runaway fire that would set everything off - the odd one goes pop but they don't go troppo like lithium can.

    Could have been in the charger or even the AC supply feeding the whole thing - which would be huge all on its own - I doubt the installation regs there would be quite as strict as here.
