"Electric vehicles are the obvious solution to that particular problem"
But lets all ignore the fact a huge percentage of households have no way of charging them, nor are they likely to have them in the next few decades.

Two hundred extension leads draped across the pavement?
A floating 500 space car park with it's own substation to power it?
I know, magic pixie dust.
Let not even mention the power stations needed to generate all this extra electricity.
