Schneider Electric to sell Russian ops to local management


Re: Or..

I used to work for them (I was emplpyed by Areva T&D), until redundancy..... My experience, was that they won't be considering the staff. The company is very driven by what the French Government want them to do.

But I would fully, expect them to buy the Russian division back.

ID Card gate? Its one thing I would bring in - it makes it a lot easier to prove who you are than proving utility bills etc.... of course until Boris 'got Brexit done' they would have doubled as a travel document in the EU.

I live in an EU country (Malta) - everyone has ID cards (although technically mines an eResidency Permit) - the effective difference is I can't use it instead of a passport.

It also ties into my driving licence as the driver number is the same as the ID card number.

Re: Power required

I have a 2.0 ICE focus... in the UK I used to average around 39-40mpg. on a long run I would get high 50's.

I now live in Malta, my average speed in around 9mph.... due to the traffic... and get around 22mpg - which goes to show the difference very urban traffic makes to ICE mpg....

Although the size of the island would make an EV the perfect choice for my next car
