The ratio of new diesel passenger car sales fell sharply; from 29.5% market share in April, 2017, to a current 19.3% market share.

Petrol cars saw market share fall from last years 28.3% to current ratio of 26.1%.

Sales of new, mixed-hybrid passenger cars are up 32.4%, with 1,000 new hybrid cars sold last month.

Pure electric, zero-emission cars doubled their sales figures for last month; with new registrations increasing 111.3% to 3,566 total units sold.

The Road Traffic Advisory Board statistics divulge that average CO2 emissions for all first-time, registered, new passenger cars during the past year has fallen to 79 grams.

Zero-emission passenger cars now hold a market share of 25.4%.

Norway features bus-lane access for electric vehicles, many electric car recharging
stations, privileged parking & toll exemption for electric vehicles. Norway can boast being the highest per-capita, all-electric car ownership in the world.

    The ideal is to develop small neighborhood Hydrogen Fueling Stations.
    Eventually some day small nucleolus of homes; a dozen or so families, or individuals living in a particular area will have access to a fuel station within a block or two of their homes! And where only the smallest necessary amount of Hydrogen is stored, and which is being produced at the station; by solar, and wind power, and/or magnetized perpetual machines and/or other forms developed in the future to create clean electricity.

    These smaller Hydrogen Fueling stations, combined with larger ones in more general areas of the cities and country side, can give LIFE back to our Planet! Produce as well billions of jobs directly and indirectly, clean the environment with the energy from the system……..increase our technology, and science…… Heal the sick and uplift the downtrodden, there will be no rich and poor WE WILL ALL BE RICH! And bring everlasting Peace to our Planet AND……..

    And…… after maybe a million of Years (hopefully much less), “This Seed”, which is Humanity will become part of THE Supreme Being which rules Time, Space, and Matter!
    WE’LL BECOME GOD-Like…. ALL IN “One”! We have the potential today for “The Lamb and the Lion” to lie side by side….do we not have the technology today to produce meat like soybean products?

    Not only we will settle the Stars…..we will take with us The Miracle of Life in this Planet in all of its perfect life forms! I am not sure about mosquitoes though? I do not think Alines in other worlds if there are any, would like us to take mosquitoes to them? (smile)

    Find ways to form a perfect cycle where produced Hydrogen, and IT, in itself, as well produce electricity in other adaptations! And think of the possibility of “HYDROGEN PERPETUAL MACHINES” A perfect life saving Cycle…….. Self Regenerating!
    AMEN and AMEN!!!!!!!!!!!

    I meant to say Aliens not “Alines”. I think maybe there was a disgusted Alien, thinking I might just change my mind about mosquitoes and hacked into my computer. Thus so the spelling error! (smile)
