Weds 8 December
“A survey of 1,731 UK drivers commissioned by The Motor Ombudsman found that 61 per cent of respondents are contemplating getting behind the wheel of an electric car – either new or used – in 2022.” From This Money, Oct 14th 2021
If you are thinking 2022 is the year for you to venture electric, this is the talk for you. Common issues people want to know more about are:
- Is there really enough charging infrastructure to make this practical?
- Aren’t they awfully expensive? Are there any grants?
- Should I buy or lease? Second hand or new?
- What sort of range can I really expect from electric cars?
- What if I can’t have a charger at home?
