Having spent some 17k on a new euro 6 due to having no choice as there were very few used euro 6 on the market then.

Having made the large outlay for the van I would like to at least get another 5-7 years minimum.

Is there any evidence they will ban vans soon rendering my van useless?

As I understand is hybrids will be the future as electric vans are not brilliant with busy jobbing work loads, plus I do not have a drive way to charge an electric van

I've heard nothing about banning vans or any petrol/deisel vehicles until this 2040 they saying a complete ban. They are trying to bring this forward......by how much I don't or nobody knows.
I'm sure you'll be able to get deisel vans or commercial vehicles for sometime to come.
I personally am a petrol head and would agree to a complete outright immediate ban on all dirty deisel cars mind and anyone who buys a 4x4 without owning a farm.

Euro 6 should be fine, if you are in London then check on TFL's ULEZ Checker to see if you are okay.

Have you got a farm?
Where I live used to be a farm, it does push out 260BHP and does 0-60 in 5.9s not bad for a 16 year old car.......

Other cities also , I hear it has spread to Newcastle too, maybe if they put all the fancy lights off at night that might help too.

If the "toons" drank less and came out with less BS then the climate issue wouldn't be an issue......... ;o)))))

Ahhhhh importing tea from far and beyond is detrimental to the climate.......
So is biomass chips from across the ocean in oil burning ships , and from the docks delivered to our little power station by five diesel trains a day. I believe about forty wagons apiece.

I live in Bath in 2020 they are creating a low emission zone it will be 9 quid a day for vans that arent the cleaner engine type. Will be passed onto customers.

Plus handling charge and VAT on top so make it £15 ;o))))))

Just to be clear... We're importing biomass chips ??? Where from ?

What is your average daily mileage? i drive an electric eNV200 which gives at least 50 miles per charge loaded up but the battery upgrade now means they will do over 120 miles.. not having a driveway though is a bummer. Thought of moving at all?

Around here (West London) the councils are busy installing public charging points on the pavements like they are going out of fashion.

I imagine this will spread to other areas soon, so it maybe that the problem of not having a driveway will become moot very shortly.

They will find a way round it .. induction charging by parking over a grid in the road is one way. Just drive on, drive off in morning and top up by mobile.. simples..

Be a long time before that happens.

An inductive field that large, would start having a negative effect on large amounts of equipment we use for people walking past.

First one that springs to mind is pacemakers.

Perhaps it will need a sensor to initialise it then.. like the large area of metal on top? I'm sure its not an insurmountable problem but all I'm saying is theres a lot of research going on in this area...

It may not be as far away as you suggest:

Inductive charging - Wikipedia - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inductive_charging#Electric_vehicles

Although I too remain a little sceptical but mainly on the grounds of efficiency and cost rather than the accidental disabling of pace makers.

Clearly the inductive field from the power transfer coils would only be switched on once sufficiently adequate close coupling had been achieved between charger and the vehicle and under these circumstances it is possible to imagine (at least in theory!) that the stray magnetic field would be small.
 
I was in Cardiff a few months ago... there are alot of new residential buildings there... one was brand new... they were still finishing off the landscaping etc... The entire ground floor of the building was a car park for the residents above... you could see into it from the sides. I was astonished that I could not see a single car charging point in there. Surely if the UK wants to be all electric as they say... all new builds should have this built in ?? Part of building regs ??

Over population is the main cause of climate issues so that my help balance the load out a bit over time.......
