First of all, a little disclaimer: All views are my own and personal. i am a keen EV driver since 2012 days and all/any criticism is based on my own experience and similarly, improvement recommendations may already be in place for all those in the upgraded models. This is not to dissuade you from any purchase or lease option for either of these models.
As per my pervious post and indeed snaps…
Here goes, starting with a preface,
My In-laws have descended for a family wedding, here in our sunny and beautifully Hertfordshire, and whilst all wedding related ads are done, dusted and in-between it would have been a good idea to take them out to our gorgeous English countryside. Where better than Cotswolds and the like. But wait, there is more, sister-in-law and their family would certainly need to join as well and their children, for none-other than LegoLand flying visit as well.
Now, you know me, it’s 8 of us now, never mind the luggage and buggies for two children, and I’m not all too keen on 8+ people carrier, not that you can rent one our like so for a sensible sum. Dedicated 16 seater with 20mpg is a definite no no. so Two cars? Perhaps. » Read the rest of this entry «

Update: Following European travel experience update from TransportEvolved, My trip is on hold to enable further, better planning…
As the sales of the Electric Cars slowly grow, its inevitable that travelling interCity, or taking the car further out of it’s designated Comfort Zone, venturing well into the Range Anxiety area would not be a novel concept for the few. In fact, considering that More and More #ev buyers are found to be younger and more affluent, and while retaining a good responsible credit rating, still, as i would interpret, – less conservative regarding “pushing the EV limits”. Don’t shoot me down, thats just my two penny’s worth on the topic here. I guess I fall in the same category, and incidentally indeed am willing to test the Comfort Boundaries of Range Anxiety on the inter”-state” #evRoadTrip.
My Plan, if you kept up with my rambling, is to Make it from North London to Amsterdam. » Read the rest of this entry «
