        Is the electric car going to be affordable?.....Cost of recharging?,,,,,,How long to recharge battery if you are on a trip....along with the range of the vehicle....

        Personally I think the consumer will have the last say on what is going to be made...

          That would be hard to believe. I’ve owned 3 wheelers as late as 2004.

            I would imagine heavy/commercial vehicles will continue to run on diesel. Time is money for them, cannot afford to spend time on the charger every 30 min 'cause the battery went flat....so gasoline may still be available if diesel is, with less choice in octane ratings.
            Folks in all countries that enjoy this hobby should be contacting their politicians & TELLING them that killing this great hobby is 'not on'. The squeaky wheel gets the oil....& we need to be veeeeery squeaky. If these politicians had any brains, they would see that this hobby...& it's continuation....provides a huge number of jobs.
            Jobs mean employees & employers, both pay taxes, & govts need tax....

                I just sold my 200X 3 wheeler to my brother last year. He still has it and rides it. 3 wheelers are for sale all the time on marketplace, etc.

                  The advent of electric vehicles has side effects . One : wicked increase in petroleum prices . Two : passing laws to prevent i.c. engines from highways . Three : taxes on motor fuels willg o so high that the public will be forced to buy electric . Four : no aftermarket support for i.c. engines . Five : taxes to pay for charging stations nation wide . I could go on but I won't .

                    The oil/gas industry has a lot of power and influence. Look at how loud they bitched about Ethanol.

                        Back about ten years ago, I kept having this reoccurring dream night after night. I dreamed I had to ride my horse and lead another with a pack saddle 15 miles to the grocery store and then back. Took all day, and it could be cold in Missouri. Guess I was hungry!?
                        I could do that today BUT at almost 73, I have to have a mounting block, or stump, or gate to get on!!! Pitiful.

                        Oh that is true. BUT, the government could outlaw the refining of anything into a motor fuel and....you still have your car only now it's a lawn ornament.
