Three, four times a week, I would say. Just keep it topped up.
So, it makes you have a break and stop driving for long distance anyway, which is quite nice.
Because it's at work, I tend to do it on a slower charger. So, it's about an hour.
A fairly low battery up to a fully charged one, it probably takes over an hour.
Depending on how I need to go, 20, 30 minutes.
So, a maximum 220.
I get about 225 miles with a full charge.
Averages about 200 miles of range.
We were working it out, and I think it's something like 3p a mile.
If I charge it at home overnight, it costs me 3 pounds to charge.
The last time I charged here, it cost me 16 pounds. And that took me from 15% battery to 99% battery. No, I don't think so. They're so fun to drive.
I mean the technology's gonna get better. It's gonna get longer range. They're gonna get more out of the batteries. So, no, probably not, actually.
No, I wouldn't go back.
Our next one is definitely going to be electric, so.
I think most people who are skeptic probably never actually tried driving one.
Just try it. Just get in one and try it, because the moment you do, you'll realize it's better.
Obviously, you've not got that vroom, vroom, 'cause you've not got that, but you've got the power in it. You've got the speed, you've got everything that normal car does, but it just doesn't make a noise.
To start with, you’ll want to think about your driving habits and understand the practicalities of owning an electric vehicle.
