Under the glorious future John Gummer and his chums at the Committee on Climate Change have in store for us, one third of new cars will be plug in by 2025.
He has got a long way to go!
According to the SMMT, registrations of plug in cars last year rose to a remarkable 14518, out of a total of 2,476,435 new cars registered, a pathetic 0.58%. This is despite the govt (for which, read taxpayer) chucking a subsidy of £5000 at anyone buying electric cars, something that will be totally unsustainable at much higher sales volumes.
Still, we’ll be alright, Gummer has another cunning plan!
I think this has something to do with hedgehogs!
