Yes, most of my driving is well inside the range
But a significant part of my annual mileage isn't.
So, I'd have to either buy and maintain two cars - one EV for commute, one diesel* for longer range - or hire a diesel* car every time I need the longer range.
At the moment, the EV simply costs far too much and depreciates too fast for either of those to be economically viable.
- I'm also very lucky in that I do have somewhere to charge an EV, most city dwellers don't so couldn't even consider it.
So my question is - where is the car that is both these things?
Plug-in EV for my daily commute, diesel genny for my occasional long journey?
How ****ing hard can it be if even Top Gear can cobble that together?
* For low-carbon long-range, diesel is the only choice.
