If the legislation goes through, I presume the Netherlands will invest
heavily in recharging points. Hopefully by 2025 battery technology will have
improved enough for people to be able to make long journeys by electric cars
without having to stop every n-hundred miles for an overnight recharging
If I could get an electric car that had the same range (700 miles per
filling) and the same refill time (about 5 mins max for 60 litres / 700
miles) then I might consider an electric car. I wonder what they are like to
drive. I presume electric cars have a single-speed gearing between motor and
wheels, ad can set off from the motor being at rest, without needing a
variety of ratios to match a limited range of motor speeds to a wide range
of road speeds and without needing a clutch.
Do hybrid cars use mechanical transmission from the IC engine to the wheels,
or are they permanently driven by the motor, with power coming either from
the batteries or the engine driving a generator?

The simplest is a front wheel drive ICE with and electric rear wheel drive.
The mechanical connection is the highway.
There are series designs (similar to submarines and parellel devices.
I expect at some point one system or the other will come out on top.
Electric "motors" and "generators" are the same thing.
In electric cars one device does both.
I'd not hold my breath. Since the very first electric car well over 100
years ago, the quest has been on for better batteries. As it is for
virtually every type of portable electric device. The chances of some
breakthrough that will provide what you want at a affordable price, remote.

As I have been trying to tell someone else, in a discussion elsewhere.
He claims that I am wrong and the breakthroughs (as there needs to be more
than one) really are just around the corner this time.
In this case I can say that of all the greenybollox spouted, this one
is, with heat pumps, the closest to being a realistic option.
Lithium air batteries have the theoretical energy density, but are
impossible to make meet other specs like cost and safety right now.
1000 mile range might be possible. Since most people don't do that much
in a month, fast charge wouldn't then be so important.,
Truth welcomes investigation because truth knows investigation will lead
to converts. It is deception that uses all the other techniques.
