(squints)And car financing isn’t suitable for those with poor credit and / or people who can’t affording to be paying every month. A lot of people just are t in that position.
Given the fact the the resale value on their current petrol or diesel is going to be SFA, a lot of people don’t have that money available for a new car. It’s basically an assumption that people can afford an electric vehicle, even the entry model ones. Which of course, they can’t.
I think we're arguing past each other a bit. I'm saying that if you're spending X on diesel every week then you can save money by buying a brand new EV. I understand that this doesn't apply to anyone who is not spending X on diesel every week
I don't think this is realistic. We are going to have to pay for a transition to a carbon-neutral economy. It's not reasonable to expect the Greens to somehow make it magically happen for freeBut maybe with a bigger Green Party Input at EU level, we can start funding more affordable EVs and home charging packs.
To the point where they wouldn’t just be saving a few quid but where they’d be crazy not to take up the offer.
