Range and Charging Myths

Do I really need the same range as my petrol car?

  • Most journeys start and finish at home on the same day, so if you have a charger at home, you only need enough charge for one day. Range matters for Petrol and Diesel cars because you don’t want the trouble of charging every day.

How can I cope with charging taking so long compared to five minutes at a petrol station?

  • Easy, if you are charging at home, you can charge whilst sleeping!
  • If you’re out and about you can often charge whilst shopping, having a coffee, working or at an attraction.
