Technology is constantly evolving and in today’s world of smart phones and TV’s and with smart technology at our fingertips then why not ‘smart workshops’. Vehicle technology is constantly evolving as more and more customers demand smart vehicles.
The development of Electric/Hybrid cars are now at the forefront of most manufacturers and as they are around three times more efficient than cars with just an internal combustion engine it’s hardly surprising that people are now considering this as a mode of transport for the future. In an announcement on 6th July 2017 the French government has set out an ambitious goal for no more petrol or diesel cars to be sold in the country by 2040. This follows a proposal to ban diesel cars from Paris city centre by 2020. No doubt the UK will follow suit.
