Negative charge: why is Australia so slow at adopting electric cars …

THIS IS ONE OF BEAR’S RARE SERIOUS POSTS

“In the race to adopt electric vehicles, Australia is sputtering along in the slow lane.

Rather than growing, Australian sales of electric cars are actually in decline. In 2016 they represented just 0.02 per cent of new car sales — even lower than in 2013.

Contrast that with Norway, the country with the highest levels of electric car adoption. Almost 30 per cent of new cars sold there in 2016 were electric.”

“China recently announced that it is working towards a timetable to end production and sales of internal combustion engine vehicles. It’s a good example, which Australia would be wise to follow.

This will be critical if we are to reduce transport-related emissions, toxic air pollution and noise, and improve our fuel security in the face of increasingly unstable geopolitical circumstances and our growing dependence on imported fuel.”

This has been on Bear’s mind for many years now. My current car is a 2002 Subaru Forester. I promised myself when buying the economical 4 cylinder car 15 years ago that my next car would be as non polluting as possible. I am still waiting.

The Australian Government needs to do something dramatic soon.

What do you think?

(Don’t get me wrong the Forester is still very comfortable and the most economical car I have ever owned! Several guys at the place I get it serviced have similar Foresters so that says something. I get approached regularly to sell it because of the mint condition. So I guess I have been very non polluting by keeping it for such a long time?)

London puts new hybrid electric black cabs on roads ahead of larger rollout …

“London is starting up a pilot test of its electric black cabs (via Engadget), otherwise known as the TX5, after first revealing the vehicles back in 2015. The cars have 70 miles of pure EV range on …

This is still a car that will probably spend a lot of time guzzling gas, considering its range and the amount of travel that drivers normally do during a day in the city. But it’s a far greener alternative compared to what’s used now, and it has the potential to get better over time.”
