Full shift to electric vans would melt Royal Mail's London hub, MPs told

Where I live is a row of terrace houses with no off road parking so charging an EV in the evening while parked on the road is not a option. I would consider getting a hybrid car though that doesn't require direct charging and instead tops up the batteries using a small petrol engine. All my previous cars have been second hand as I cannot afford to buy brand new cars. But since there is no real second hand market yet for EVs, I am worried that running costs of a used EVs is going to be a lot more than a similar aged petrol car especially when they require the batteries replacing.
