    When touring you will certainly need a scooter or decent e-bike - looks to be a good starting point.

    The mileage would have to improve considerably before I looked at one, but they have to start somewhere. Personally I think the internal combustion engine is far from dead yet.

    Think youíre right on the money they have too start somewhere was thinking if they took weight of engine and gearbox off I know the electric motors have some weight but a motorhome is probably a good base for an electric vehicle as plenty of places too put extra batteries especially double floored vans and once they get the new silicone base batteries stable enough the price should come down drastically.

    I have no confidence in electric long range vehicles unless it was possible to swap the battery out at service stations that were as common as petrol stations as we know them.l don't think electric is the future, it worked with milk floats but that was yesteryear.

    At the moment there are no weight savings to be had by removing engines and transmission as the batteries required still weigh considerably more so in reality it has to be eating into payload .That has to be why it has such restricted mileage it simply on its weight limits, and can not carry any more battery. There still needs to be a massive breakthrough in battery technology that hasn't happened yet.

    Kevin Ash of MCN disregard electric,and that's good enough for me, but it was to be swapping discharged batteries at petrol/energy stations would be a solution.

    When will our expensive Deisel Motorhome be worthless.

    Thereís going to be a point in time when anything run on Deisel will be worthless as the Year for banning Deisel comes closer. We wonít want to spend 60K plus in the future knowing itís going to depreciate.

    The demise of the diesel scares me witless. Just got into this motorhomeing lark, and now someone is throwing a spanner in the works.
    Remember when the experts were telling us to buy diesel,so much better for the environment than nasty petrol?

    The amount of solar required to run this would beat even Phil and Rae.

    One thing about Kevin is he does keep his finger on the pulse.
