Is an electric car right for you?
Modern life is stressful enough without having to worry about whether your car battery is sufficient to get you to your destination, or if you’ll be able to find a conveniently located charging point along the way. So goes the theory of range anxiety, which has certainly put some drivers off going all electric.
But vehicle technology is improving all the time and the battery range of electric cars is growing – according to the RAC, you can expect to drive between 100 and 300 miles on a fully charged electric car4.
And the options for keeping your car’s battery topped up are expanding too. Home charging is probably the most convenient, but if it’s not possible where you live you may be able to plug in while you’re at work, shopping or at the gym, or at an ultra-fast charging station, where 10 minutes on charge could add 100 miles to your battery.
