Steam trains - a great treat to see one or go for a ride as a holiday treat, but I'd rather live next to an electric train line than have the pollution.

I couldn't remember how long ago it was, and it was 2008 when "battery powered electric cars will soon die altogether" was the Top Gear review of the Tesla Roadster.  Electric has come a long way since then, for all its got a way to go yet and longer term may not be "the one" vs hydrogen or whatever else.

The idea of personal transport for all by drone is a nightmare for the poor erks who remain on the ground - who fancies the idea of a three dimensional M25 above their house. Sad

So, nearly 5 years on from when I first wrote the thread and this has been in the news https://www.motor1.com/news/538799/lancia-delta-return-ev-2026/ .... let's see Smiley

But if it does what they rumour , looks good , drives well and is desirable - well, who knows ! may think about getting one in 5 years ... and while I think about it , I would have thought that LHD/RHD is not so much of an issue with an EV  ? ( that's guessing there less mechanical controls needed ... )

I've had several more rides in Teslas and fair to say they are not uncommon on the roads these days ....

Regarding the annoucement about a new Delta. It's nice that they have given us 5 years to save up for one. As Lancia has been put in the Premium segment by Stellantis there will be a fair uplift in price between their 'Upper Mainstream' segment and the 'Premium' segment. Not that I'm complaining about that, it's the best way forward for Lancia and fits in with it's history.

I'm just praying that it isn't an SUV. Sorry if any of you have one as a daily car, but I just can't stand the sight of them. It's a bit of a problem for me, as SUVs have completely taken over the new car market. Even the small number of 'normal' hatchbacks and saloon cars look like they are on steroids. Anyway, I can only hope they will go out of fashion before the Delta is launched.
