Though companies like BMW, Nissan and Renault are selling their battery electric vehicles in reasonable quantities, where are the fully electric versions of their ICE models? Where is a battery version of a BMW 3 series or 7 series. Cars that could take on the Tesla 3 & S directly. Motorists in the market for a new vehicle need an electric option whatever vehicle they're after.

In the last few days the Netherlands has committed itself to banning the sale of fossil fuelled cars by 2025 and banning there use by 2030. This I think is a far more realistic timeline than other countries saying they're going to outlaw diesel and petrol vehicles by 2040 or later. The date of 2025 is going to force vehicle manufacturers into action. If they want to sell vehicles in the Netherlands then they will need to offer electric vehicles for sale. Even now people will be wanting to buy electric cars because they know come 2025 an ICE vehicle will have no resale value. This is also something we can all look forward to seeing happen within a decade, we won't have to wait dozens of years to see a fully electrified nation.
