    No.  Smelted is the best prospect,

    in my estimate.  Pre-smelt rending 

    will sort out the vehicle content.

    Not for at least another 200 years.  Look, the horse and carriage is still around and in museums, so is the hay wagon in both places. So is the dog sled and the early electric cars.  If the museum is big enough(most are not) but they can fit in pictures of the Coal carrying Electra hauls that are huge trucks used in mining TODAY. Battery powered a long time already.  Way before Elon was a sparkle in his daddy's eye. Fully computer controlled...too.    EM is just using the tech that ALREADY EXISTS and put it into a car.  Someday he may invent something, but right now he is basically Edison(a grifter). (there is no way he has the intelligence of a "Nickola Tesla"-the inventor.

    No.  Nobody is banning gasoline engines.  Electric cars do not have the torque to do the work or the distance.  Can't be used in trucks.  Can't be used heavy equiqment.  Can't be used in trains.  Can't be used in aircraft.  Can't be used in boats and ships.  Electric cars are just an expensive and arrogant way to try and prove you're better and smarter than everyone else.  Fail.  Do you people in the UK every think for yourself?  Or do you wait for your betters to tell you what to think?

    Really? No one has thought this through.

    Where is all the electricity coming from?

    How are they going to replace tax from fuel?

    How are people going to charge electric cars? Most people don’t have off road parking. Are we going to see extension leads across every pavement ?

    I see hybrids are still allowed. My guess is cars will still be petrol ( I think diesels will be banned by then), but with a token electric motor to make it a hybrid.

    Petrol/diesel engines will NOT be banned. 

    Learn how to read.  They will stop making NEW vehicles. 

    The older cars will still be on the road, for many decades. 

    Even if fossil fuels are gone we will have alcohol and vegetable oils.
