Beginning of the end for motorhoming

The Petrol and diesel vehicle ban brought forward to 2035. Will electric powered motor homes be a viable option by then. Of course those diesel powered ones will still be able to be used but I bet the tax regime penalises them.

"It's likely the government will have to change the way fuel is taxed to make up for losing billions of pounds at the pump.

The government raised about £27.9bn from fuel duties in 2016-17, according to the Office for Budget Responsibility. That's getting on for 4% of the total tax take."
