We know all manufactures will go all out electric, have no choice and that's what Jaguar Land Rover have confirmed also that they will be going all electric.
I'm still a Petrol head.

If you look closely at press releases they aint saying all electric but smaller power plants with electric motors to boost when needed and can drive all electric in towns at reduced power in low emission zones, that's my understanding

You're probably right Derek, I've not read the article and purely read the headlines.
