The Car Conundrum

The third part in my blog series on anti Black Week and the environment.

The car conundrum or “vanskelig varebil valg” (I’ve gone for alliteration as you can see).

We all want to be environmentally friendly and minimise our impact on the planet.

At the moment that is a large movement away from fossil fuel powered cars and vans towards electric. But is the choice that simple?

There is a lot of conflicting research on the topic.

In our fleet of cars and vans we have a mixture of electric and fossil fuel. Our choice is also complicated by the fact that there are no four-wheel drive electric vans currently for sale in Norway.

The simple fact is that we need four-wheel drive sometimes to both access some of our dogs and also to help rescue some of the other vehicles, whether walkers’ or randoms in Winter.

There is also my thoughts that it is better to use a 10-year-old fossil fuel van for another five years, than to necessitate the intensive production of a new electric vehicle and the scrapping of a useable old van perfect for dogs and adventures.

Do not get me wrong it would actually be much cheaper (tolls) and quicker (using bus and taxi lanes) in an electric vehicle. But I like to use things for their natural lifespan instead of discarding them because of ease or the latest trend.

And so the conundrum continues….
