Who cares if the technology isn't here now, it will be then. Obviously Electric Cars are the wave of the future. Of course, how that electricity get's PRODUCED is going to be a big deal. But let's ignore that for now.
Go Battery Cars!
I see this working out like that Kyoto thing, big commitments, few results.

My Endo doc went over my blood work. "I see your estrogen level is now at 315, do you feel like you have too much Estrogen now?"
I told her "... N... N.. No..." and started crying.
It wont have that big an impact. Most big cities have top rate public transport, that already is better than driving. For one, I would never drive into Copenhagen center. I would park in the suburbs and take the train/metro. Just so much easier to get around with those. In many cities they already are pushing towards this any ways, including London. Congestion charges are quite high in London for example, and local authorities in many cities either cut the amount of parking available or make it expensive. Free parking is a thing of the past.
As for the EU doing this... the OP article comes from a UK paper, which means you always have to take it with a huge grain of salt. I cant see under what current ruleset that the EU can set local transportation laws.. hell they cant even set speed limits as of yet.. As always, for this to go through.. all countries need to agree, including the UK.. something that the OP newspaper most likely forgot to mention (no I did not read it .. could not be bothered).
Theres so many problems with this...if you live semi rural or rural and work in the city, you have to drive your car if theres no public trans to the city available, find a place to park right outside the city, take transportation into the city then switch at least once to get where your going. WOW, how about getting up 8 hrs before you start work to get ready and to finally get there

It's not like anyone even drives in London anyway. The various trains make getting around a breeze.
Mind the gap.
