Although an EV could certainly do 650 miles in four days (163 miles per day is well within the range of most modern EVs)

It wasn't so much the range I was pleased with, more that after twelve years and 212,000 miles, it was still working perfectly well.

And here's an interesting thing - a solar-powered car!

Slick! Just the thing to be seen in when I take my skiing holiday in the Cairngorms this winter. Ah.

Apparently there are not enough new engineers in Britain to keep the modern world running. Are there any engineers out there who can contradict this?

It's a glib simplification of a complex issue, but I wouldn't necessarily dispute the core message that we need to encourage more youngsters to look at STEM-based careers.

Most companies (even engineering companies) offer higher pay, grade and advancement prospects to their project managers, commercial staff and finance staff than they do to their engineers, and I can't help thinking this is part of the problem.

They don't pay them enough in Britain. I got a 40% pay rise when I moved to the US and I'm now earning far more than I could dream of getting in the UK for the equivalent job.

I think a lot of people are put off by the difficulty of the school work to graduate though, but the job itself is far easier for the most part.
