This is a question bigger than Brexit.. is Matt Hancock so short of space that all his interviews have to be conducted in his downstairs privy.. or more worryingly is it the only room in the house with a camera installed on the door😂

Is #MattHancock addressing the nation on #BBC news from his downstairs toilet? 💩

WHO limits for toxic air pollution would make the effectiveness of clean air zones even more important

So much more fun than fuel burning behemoths like the #BMW X7, #Audi Q7 or #Audikuwait
Clean, electric, smaller footprint #EV

We built it for ordinary trips, to lighten the footprint of going to work and getting groceries. What we discovered along the way: the pure delight it was to drive. The FUV, available now to preorder customers on the West Coast and Florida, coming soon nationwide $FUV

Yes, Switzerland is a small country and car market. Nonetheless, I feel this amazing fact deserves way more attention:

The #Tesla #Model3 was the 2nd best selling car in 🇨🇭 in the entire year 2020 - of ALL cars (incl gas-guzzlers). Only 14% behind the leader. Mind blown!

Very interesting feedback from British Gas' Fleet Engineer, James Rooney, on running electric vans:

In 7 years of running a large fleet of Nissan e-NV200 electric vans, not one of them has broken down. Not even once.

The same cannot be said of their NV200 diesel vans!

Thanks to @waitrose CEO James Bailey for his response to our letter asking to meet. Interesting to note the "differing opinions". If @jlpartnership feels Logistics UK is doing the wrong thing, perhaps it's time to stop lending them credibility? #AirPollution #Greenwashing

Say hello to the Mercedes EQA. It will be Merc's entry-level EV and has a 66kWh battery at launch and a WLTP range of 264 miles. Power is 190bhp and max charge rate is 100kW. Expect UK prices to start at around £40k when it arrives later this year.

Your verdict, electrifiers?
