'Placebo': Hybrid cars are 'irrelevant' as calls grow to ditch petrol and diesel for EVs


“When EVs use charge points, they are using what limited resources real EVs need. Range anxiety is a common, and often misplaced, fear of going electric. 

“Building more charge points is vital, and we don’t nearly have enough, but if they are being used by cars that have an internal combustion engine, and let’s not forget have negligible, if any, positive impacts on the environment, they are reducing the operational capacity of our electric infrastructure.”

Honda announced it would push ahead with hybrid technology vehicles, even though they were the first Japanese carmaker to declare a phaseout from petrol and diesel cars.

Honda currently only has one electric vehicle on the market, trailing Volkswagen and other global players.
