It's OK - they can trickle charge in the outlying areas - it'll only take 3 weeks for a full charge Whistle Whistle

Obviously all the power will come from;

new nuclear stations (never get round to building them at this rate)
renewable - it'll never be sunny or windy when you want to charge the car
[/list]

An obvious solution that helps balance load is grid level storage, but this is only just becoming mainstream too...

Diesel Electric option.

Do not bother with a "Hybrid". It is the worst weight option, full conventional transmission plus weight of batteries etc.
Instead go "Diesel Electric" as many railway locomotives are.
No conventional transmission but Diesel Generator (plus Rectifier pack), Batteries (load capping) and Electric Motors. Either four motors (one per wheel) or two motors (one at front and one at rear) with differentials.

Thats similar to what BMW has done with the I3 only using a 600CC BMW motorbike engine instead. Ours never gets used unless the maintenance cycle kicks in and when it does you can hardly hear it. I'm sure after hybrid this will become the next mainstream step. Knowing the REX is there just in case you run out really made it work for us, you can also manually start it and it just holds the state of charge indefinitely whilst running on petrol.

reading this ref the jag E type , think the cost would be eye watering if they do bring it into production

http://www.carenthusiast.com/news/article/...plans.html

You mentioned past as well?
Oh yes, here's the cool bit. Jaguar has also shown off an all-electric E-Type. The firm's Classic division has taken a gorgeous 1968 E-Type convertible, binned the 4.2-litre petrol engine, and installed a bespoke 220kW electric powertrain, to create the E-Type Zero. It's a one-off for now, but Jaguar claims that it will sprint from 0-62mph in 5.5 seconds, and has a one-charge range of around 170-miles. Better yet, it might just go on sale. Tim Hannig, Director, JLR Classic, said:"E-Type Zero combines the renowned E-Type dynamic experience with enhanced performance through electrification. This unique combination creates a breathtaking driving sensation. Our aim with E-Type Zero is to future-proof classic car ownership. We're looking forward to the reaction of our clients as we investigate bringing this concept to market."

2016 Discovery 4 3.0 SDV6 Graphite LE Auto Corris GreyDiscovery 4

I drive a Golf GTE and whikst it is a brilliant car, well executed as a plug in hybrid and works very well for our use it is flawed - too expensive to buy new vs a stock GTI, lacking pure electric range (25 miles if during like a saint) and too heavy, which means that for longer trips it's worse than a GTD or small engined petrol Golf. I'll be very interested to see how JLR make a hybrid work in terms of cost and complexity and pure electric would require a lot of batteries (assuming current tech) and a brand new platform. I imagine that the current pure electric and hybrid cars are just a stepping stone to something else as I agree with previous posters about infrastructure and can't see cars with batteries and internal combustion as a long term solution.

Latest comment and video from JLR on the I-PACE:

Quote:
One year on from showing the I-PACE Concept at the LA Auto Show, Jaguar is back in town with a production prototype for final range and durability tests ahead of its official global reveal in 2018.

Thousands of potential customers have pressed the ‘I want one’ button on www.jaguar.com to place a deposit or register a strong interest in the hotly anticipated electric SUV. Not only will they be at the front of the queue when order books officially open in March, but a lucky few have been chosen to accompany Jaguar's engineers as prototype vehicles complete final validation tests.

Ann Voyer from Pasadena asked Jaguar if the I-PACE would have enough range to complete her favourite road trip along California's West Coast. To answer her question, Jaguar engineers took her on a long-distance range test – on one charge only. The I-PACE production prototype drove 200 miles from Sunset Boulevard, Los Angeles, to Morro Bay, San Luis Obispo, on a single charge of its advanced Lithium-Ion battery.

Ian Hoban, Jaguar Vehicle Line Director, said: “After 1.5 million global test miles, the I-PACE is ready for production and is proven to deliver long distances on a single charge. Jaguar's first battery electric vehicle will also be fast to charge; our target is a zero to 80 per cent charge being achievable in a short break."

Full specification and pricing for Jaguar's electric performance SUV will be announced in March 2018 when order books will officially open.
