It's wrong, innit? I mean, if someone can afford £31,000 for a car powered by a PP3, then why do they need a £5K bung from Her Maj?

Utterly Barmy - they did the same to get yer mota converted to lpg - look what happened there.

As Clarkson said a couple of weeks ago - it cost £8 to recharge the battery on this Nissan Leaf and then it goes 100 miles. You can go further on £8 worth of diesel.

Leccy motors are a gimmic - for folk who like sandels and brown rice - zero emissions my arse.

clanless - yeah i seen that episode of top gear and i also agree that the way forward is definately hydrogen powered vehicles...but how long will that be before someone finds away to turn them into weapons!!! :eek:

I dunno about the Iron specifically, but the Prius is responsible for more emissions when it lands on the showroom floor than an H2 Hummer from manufacture, through a hundred thousand miles driving, and into scrapping/recycling. Duh.

We will. Have to get a new tool set too, insulated stuff to cope with the high voltage. Its some serious stuff.
I've done the 508 E-Hdi training and even that is serious. The capacitor under the wing needs a special tool to ''empty'' it before its touched.

yeah we have a kill stick for radars...hook that to a ground and touch the other end on the capacitor and any other electronic devices that could hold static or current.

ive been wacked by a capacitor in an old 32" TV...I pretty much callapsed due to lack of muscle control...didnt shite meself unfortunately...would of got the day off instead of "man up" :lol:

i bet with all that new training it will open more doors for some qualifications...way forwards nowadays :thumb:

Thread resurrection warning!

Seeing as you can't buy one of these, being lease only, is there any need for a forum for 'owners'?
