For a family of four, who live in a house with a driveway and spend most of their time within 100 miles of the house, this is a fantastic choice – it’s quiet, comfortable and clean, no emitting no pollution to the tailpipe and gaining various privileges as a result. And best of all, it recharges overnight, on the driveway, for a few pounds. No need to visit a public charging station.
The wrong side? It’s less practical on those occasional long trips. Charging an electric car on the go can be even more complicated than filling a gasoline or diesel car with liquid fuel. It’s not impossible, but it can take five minutes of planning a Plan B before you begin your trip, and many people are unprepared for this uncertainty.
