What Electric Car Range do I need?

You need to think differently about Range for an Electric vehicle, it’s not about time at a petrol station -that’s Petrol thinking. Electric vehicles can be left charging whilst you’re doing something else.

Manufacturers are very aware that few people have switched to Petrol thinking so they, and the Charging networks (excluding Home charging) are reinforcing the idea that charging is a pain. Indeed Hybrid vehicles are currently being advertised as no plug-in required!

See this July 2020 article in Forbes magazine.
