    I bet the tree huggers wont want the V8 rumble, probably something more akin to whale sounds, or trees gently blowing in the breeze lol.
    For once I agree with the EU though as I nearly got knocked down by a poxy electric Nissan van in my own yard, fkin near **** myself....... and it fkin near got it's screen put in.

    All electric cars should be prohibited from having side windows, the stereo should be turned up to 11, and then the volume knob removed, and have one of these wired in where the owners can't find it.......

    PS. I still prefer the crusher option though.

    There have been several pics on fb of people using a small petrol genny to charge their lecky cars at campsites etc but the other day I saw one of a huge diesel genny acting as a commercial charging station in the States.

    I just hope they don't specify an annoying bleeper like most reversing bleepers. That would drive anybody insane.

    With 'Smart' technology monitoring everything you'll be doing vehicle taxation will change from what we no have to taxation on dedicated home and kerbside chargers - and - per mile travelled.

    I've been driving hybrids for 5 years now - when in highly populated urban areas as a driver you'll become 'aware' of situations where a pedestrian might walk-out in front of you without looking and generally react before they do .......something that cyclists need to do all the time. The general reaction from the pedestrians stupid enough to do this is one of an apologetic nature (not aggression surprisingly) - we don't need 'kin sounders. Even electric vehicles emit tyre noise in exactly the same as other vehicles once over 10/15 mph.
