Re: Same old
I'm not going to devolve into a tit for tat with an "Anonymous Coward", but being an Ex IT Consultant for HP where my average mileage was 25,000 every six months, these are not your normal users of these cars and when was the last time you made a 400mile trip like that and how often, unless you are a white van man?
EV's are like Marmite, they either work for you or they don't, mine works for me as they could and would for many people if they could just get over this dependence on having an ICE in the car!
As I've said (in another post) I clock up 20,000 miles a year now personal and I don't have an issue with driving onto my drive plugging my car into the external charging port on my drive. I'v never had the situation where "oh sorry can't come out tonight as I've been to Tesco and the Post Office" and I don't have any charge.. It's never failed to meet my needs
(My ASDA has 32A Charging points, so I'm getting free electric whilst I shop and always go home with more than I left).
I have 4 Rapid Chargers within 19 miles two of which are under 2miles yet I hardly ever use them even though they are free!
People need to stop picking faults in this emerging technology and accept it for what it is, Range Bashing is tedious, as is Ohh No Spare Wheel, Lots of cars don' thave them these days! (Mini's being one and they are not EV either)
My Fuel bil went from £3,600-£4,000 per year to less than £700. Economics makes sense, unless that is you have a fuel card and company car (although company car tax for a Mitsibushi PHEV is something like £38 a year instead of £300+)
