We have diesel Sportage for towing as it is currently the only viable option.

When my diesel Ceed finally gives up I'll probably make the switch to pure electric.

Hybrid has always looked like a stepping stone to me.  I'd be more than happy to step over it.

Most politicians I`ve heard of are out of favour so why trust them..it was them who encouraged everyone to buy diesels from the start, now they are ill informing us yet again in that they have had their day and are defunct
I will stay with diesels as long as possible...and by 2040 when the politicians say diesels will have had their day i probably won`t be around anyway, if i am then i`ll be too old to care....

I've never owned a diesel car in over 45 years of drivingShocked, I did consider one before I decided on petrol hybrid/BEV was the way to go and the best option for me.
I never really did the mileage to warrant having a diesel car and with it becoming public enemy number one in the press and the DPF / Re-Gen troubles if you're doing low mileages I think I've made the right choice.

I drive a diesel, because 25k-30k miles a year.... however, I personally like the potential of electric cars. battery's are only going to better with some electric cars able to do 600miles a charge already.
