Well it's not like we have much choice in the matter, as somebody who lives outside of London either you have a car or spend three times as long (at least) on public transport or cycling every day competing for road space against cars & lorries doing 50-60 MPH.

It's also not likely that the govt are going to give up on a lucrative source of income coming from what is still the overwhelming majority of cars.

I'm guessing that it'll probably be the mid 2020s where the government introduce a "fuck you" tax on electric cars with declining fuel tax revenues.
