AS AN AA member I like to follow their latest news for motorists.

In a recent survey of more than 10,000 drivers taking part.

It found 70 percent of car buyers would consider an electric vehicle (EV).

The same survey also showed that the major barrier behind EV uptake includes purchase price and availability of public charge points.

Other concerns included uncertainty about the technology, driving ranges, availability, battery life and maintenance infrastructure.

Not wishing to state the obvious, 30 percent of those questioned stated that they will never buy one.

The price on EVs is no different than any other commodity based on supply and demand.

There should be no government subsidy for purchasing a new EV because whatever is given for free will be increased in what the market is prepared to pay.

Better to use tax payer’s money to fund the NHS which everyone uses.

Another good example is governments 5p off a litre of fuel, what happened is that most garages only gave 2.5p off and some gave nothing off at all.

The spivs in society are lining their pockets with tax payer funded gifts and harming those going through a cost-of-living crisis. That needs to be stopped.
