SUVs are loathed by everyone except the people who drive them; and in a city the size of London, a few dozen people could in a short space of time make the ownership of these cars impossible, just by running keys down the side of them, at a cost to the owner of several thousand pounds a time.
Say fifty people vandalizing four cars each every night for a month: six thousand trashed SUVs in a month and the Chelsea tractors would soon be disappearing from our streets.
“You never change things by fighting the existing reality.
To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.”

Bitcoin will supplant the petrodollar system that distorts energy prices and encourages inefficient / irresponsible use of resources.
Bitcoin incentivizes the relentless pursuit of ever more efficient energy production / usage.
SUVs are detrimental to city health in more ways than energy consumption. Modern SUV grill/bumper profiles are more likely to induce injury or death in a pedestrian crash. Much like with energy consumption, your technolibertarian deregulation fever dream can't help.
