Cann we get back to the original topic perhaps? I'm sure there is an electric Cali thread elsewhere that would benefit.

The original topic relates to depreciation which is affected by how fast the electric technology is being introduced.

Do you have anything to add to this topic perhaps?

Disagree, The original question/thread has zilch to do with an electric cali as there is no electric cali. Its a cali vs conversion depreciation question not a petrol vs diesel vs electric question.

Well the original poster wrote the following this thread.
‘Thanks 2into1, that's good background, but also slightly makes me think my fears are right. Perhaps the reason for the good historic depreciation has been the increase in prices for new ones. In another couple of years, VW will probably have the ID Buzz out, at which point there will be another VW camper (that looks more like the classic one!) competing with the California. Electric vehicles have a lot of potential for use as camper vans as well because they are essentially giant leisure batteries on wheels. Imagine being able to run the A/C all night long from the battery in hot weather like you run the diesel heater in cold weather now.’
So, it doesn’t really matter if you disagree or not...

We consider ourselves newcomers to the forum as we have only been members for about 9 months. We have been welcomed & received valuable advice during that time. Yes there have been a small number of occasions when we have have had a sharp intake of breath when reading posts between some members that have been quite rude & scathing. But we believe the majority of the time you would receive honest helpful comments and advice, if you stay around to engage in polite respectful debate.

Depreciation in electric vehicles is horrific.

Still
I think was touched on above, I imagine most people will lease them rather than own them in the future.
Someone has to pay. All factored into the lease price. We buy outright so need to consider and factor in depreciation. I allowed the Wife to buy an 6 series convertible back in 2008 and even though we managed nearly 10k off list the car was hit by depreciation that cost us 33,5k in 3.5years / 21k miles.

I looked at an I3 in early 2015 and walked away, buying an Outlander Hybrid instead, citing to BMW that depreciation would be too great. I looked again in 2019 and walked away again and bought another hybrid, a CHR this time.

I would have no concerns about buying a 6.1. (If I was looking for one). I wouldn't however pay list price for it

Sale of petrol and diesel to be banned five years earlier, as Boris Johnson reveals climate change drive
It is believed the Prime Minister will speed up plans to ban petrol and diesel cars

ByDanielle Sheridan, POLITICAL CORRESPONDENT2 February 2020 • 7:26pm
Premium
Boris Johnson has promised a clean energy revolution


The sale of petrol and diesel cars will be banned five years earlier than planned, under a climate change drive to be unveiled by Boris Johnson.
The Government announced in 2017 that it would impose a ban on diesel and petrol cars from 2040 as part of an effort to tackle air pollution.
However the Prime Minister is said to be speeding up the plans with a view to implementing the ban by 2035.
The idea was first mooted by Grant Shapps, the Transport Secretary, in October last year, when he indicated that 2035 was a target he would like to aim for.
“The government’s own advisory committee on climate change said 2035 is a date for which we should aim,” he told the Conservative Party

UK could ban sale of petrol and diesel cars in 12 years, says Shapps
Transport secretary’s disclosure of earlier target likely to rattle carmakers

The government could ban the sale of petrol and diesel cars in 2032, three years earlier than previously suggested, the transport secretary has said.
A consultation launched last week suggested all cars with internal combustion engines could be banned from 2035 but Grant Shapps told BBC radio on Wednesday the ban could come within 12 years.
The ban would happen by 2035 – or even 2032, subject to consultation, he said.

Volkswagen has accelerated its push into electric cars, as company forecasts suggest the world’s largest carmaker will produce its millionth battery electric vehicle two years earlier than previously planned.
The core Volkswagen brand will have turned out 1m battery-only cars by the end of 2023 and will reach 1.5m by the end of 2025, the Wolfsburg-based manufacturer said on Friday.

I can’t decide whether to go and get a huge diesel generator so I can charge an electric car. Or have I missed the point of the potential ban?

I think it’s great news. Perhaps you need to cheer up!
Me, I am happy and always an optimist. But also enjoy life today and look positive with a touch of realism towards tomorrow. As for my California use it to the max while others worry.

You seem to be taking this progress in electric vehicle technology a little personally.
Who do you think is worrying and not enjoying their California everyday? Being informed is a positive thing.
I’m having a lovely time in Sweden today!
