Re: "Electric vehicles are the obvious solution to that particular problem"
"Flaw in argument: if the demand goes up much night time electricity will cease to be cheap."
- My electricity is the same price night or day, but the principle is sound in that fossil fuels are taxed at 20% VAT, household electric is 4% VAT, so there is going to be a big hole in the Government's finances.
"Second flaw in argument: where is the space where all these night - time charging stations can be installed?"
- Kerbside, or under the road via induction, or car parks that are mostly empty at night. If the cars are autonomous they can drive themselves to a car park, but presumably someone would have to be there to do the plugging in (at least 1 job created) unless the industry pushes induction charging.
