I saw this article about the dramatic increase in “green” cars at this year’s motor shows. The car industry can see that demand in this sector of the market is going to increase and they are putting their plans in place.
The move towards greener transport has come about because the market (that’s you and me) is demanding more choice in environmentally friendly travel. I have already decided that when it I have to replace the family mover it will be with a much greener alternative. That said I intend to keep the current car for a while and hopefully there will be a range of choices and a decent second hand market.
The government has cut the support for greener car buyers and yet the demand increases. It is called people power. “People power” is a term that left-wingers feel more comfortable with than market forces yet it is basically the same thing. Companies produce what people want to buy.
