Back to electric cars for a second.

There is so much happening with electric cars at the moment, not least of which is the government bringing forward the date for banning sales of fossil fuel cars to 2030.

One of the things always mentioned is charging infrastructure, So I thought I would take a moment to post the latest Fully Charged episode, covering the first of a number of planned Charging hubs.

Ev's are the future, it's amazing to me how few people realise how quickly it is coming.

If you are looking for a new car, I think it would be a mistake to look at an ICE vehicle, It really is a dying technology.

The choice of EV's is growing rapidly. but it is hard to recommend anything specific, as a lot is down to personal choice and usage.

Prices might seem expensive, but EV's are much cheaper to run and Maintain, and offer many other advantages over a conventional ICE vehicle.

Pretty much every car manufacturer are bringing out EV's, If there isn't anything you now, it is only a matter of time.

I will point out Tesla are selling everything they can make. take into account the savings, the performance, safety, over the air updates etc. the whole package just works. Another advantage they hold their value extremely well. I would certainly book a test drive if you can

I am seriously looking at a Tesla, although I will probably hold off till Tesla's Berlin factory is completed.

Oh if you are not sure but considering an EV, A great place to visit would be the Fully Charged Live event in the Summer, every EV question you have will be answered, with a chance to look at all the cars that the manufactures offer.

I'll be there.

It’s absolutely the future Amiga, and something I will look at eventually. Problem is, right now unless I fork out 40k (and I’m not buying anything on pcp finance) then I wouldn’t get something I particularly want, or would compare to my GTI as it is.

Baz I think you are like most people. You see where things are heading, and are starting to ask questions. Which is the right way to go.

If you can't make the Fully Charged event, There is a place in Milton Keynes that is dedicated to EV's, and give you a chance to test drive a wide variety of Electric vehicles, while answering any questions you may have.

Have you ever driven an EV?

Nope, but I suspect I’d rather like the linear delivery they have, and the torque.

I think it will be a good few years before I am onboard, but I almost certainly will be eventually. Right now though I tons tend to change cars that often, I prefer to get one that’s well built and take care of it, so I can see me with the gti for a good 5+ years.

Baz you are doing the right thing, asking questions, and seeing what it is all about.

You will understand a bit more when you drive one, and the joy of not being tied to a Petrol station is truly liberating (as long as you can charge at home)

It might seem like a big step, but it is not as scary as people think.

It’s not a step I’d be scared of at all, I’d find having an electric car exciting, especially given how quick they can be. But, as I said so far, the equivalent to what I currently drive (and I tend never to go down a car level) is too expensive (granted I could do it via pcp but don’t want to). . I’ll be watching it closely over the next few years.

Fair enough Baz, you seem pretty level headed, I'm sure when you find the EV that works for you, you are going to love it.

Brilliant series, the tech behind the electric motorbikes is fascinating.
