In a few years time, it’s likely that millions of perfectly decent cars will be crushed because of their Diesel engines.

Shouldn’t the car manufacturers be working on a retro fit engine and battery pack that prevents adding billions of tonnes of waste to the planets scrap heaps ?

Currently costs to modify old cars entire drivetrains would be (a) too expensive (b) not viable due to the size (quantity required) and placement of batteries.

A theoretically good idea, but one that would need a jump in battery technology and overall manufacturing costs. Fundamental drivetrain is different - HOWEVER. If someone super smart could re manufacter a 1.4 turbodiesel engine to slot in an electric version, put the batteries in the boot, then possible - but would affect handling, giving other problems.

Battery's on the new cars tend to sit underfloor spread out, to lower centre of gravity. Stick a couple of hundred of kilos in the bootm in your old hatchback and it will nee the rear end re-engineering too!

If you are looking to save the planet, how about synthesizing a compound which breaks down plastics organically within salt water - thus fixing the oceans plastic problem. That I suspect is a solution already being looked at?

Mate I knew there would be talk of costs but a universal transverse engine with a universal mounting kit is the future. With relation to the batteries, let’s just put a diesel generator in the boot.

:D
