I don’t really understand the numbers.

has anyone got one?
A friend of mine who is a mechanic/garage owner says the numbers don't add up, won't add up! They're too expensive to make, too expensive to run and the batteries only last a few years before costing a fortune to replace - making their second hand value crap. Only the well off will be able to afford them.

And don't ask him about the miles you're supposed to get from a charge - he goes off on another rant!

He probably said the same about mobile phones a few years ago!

Have you considered an electric scooter? 😂

How long does it take tae charge a car?
Depends on the make, but roughly 30 mins to get tae 80% charge on a fast charger.

About 5.5 hours on a house charger.

Again depends on make o car you will get around 150-170 miles on a full charge.

Even having to pay with the price o fuel you are looking at halfing your fuel bills

Zap map app is excellent.

Batteries have a 8-year or 100,000 mile warranty so hes talking pish. Cheaper to run than fuel as well, maybe he's worried hes gonna lose money as with fewer moving parts, there’s far less to worry about. This makes electric car servicing and maintenance much easier and more cost-effective.

Prob longer mate, but no doubt be fully charged before it leaves depot etc. And will having to stop etc anyway then can be incorporated into a truck stop.

I am considering the new eberlingo...

To fill up my present belingo which is a year old it cost me £67, I will get 400 miles from that.

Elec van would cost me £20 for same mileage.

Maybe need to charge more but no hardship tbh
