Re: Should have bought an Aston Martin

The thing is it's a bit of a false economy. EVs work best when they are designed and built from production as an EV. This has been a problem with some manufacturers who are putting an EV version of a current ICE with poor results (VW eGolf, BMW i3 etc). They aren't very good.

It's like those companies that built convertible versions of their normal cars and then had poor handling, creaks and chassis movement. A convertible like a Lotus Elise (when it wasn't breaking down) worked great as a soft-top.
