This year there are NO SALESMEN – just Owners sharing their experience – warts and all – of their own electric cars.
We shall have BMW, Kia, Nissan, Renault and Tesla electric cars (and more!) with owners willing to take you out in them and tell you the unvarnished truth about range, charging, real running costs, battery life and all those other things you’re not sure about.
We don’t want to knock the manufacturers or the salespeople, but they want to sell cars; we, on the other hand, want to sell electric driving as a means of transport that is less damaging to the environment than some other forms of getting about. We don’t kid ourselves that driving electric will save the planet, but it will help a bit.
Electric cars are doubling their sales every year and now make up about 2% of the whole market, so hardly a big chunk but within five years they will be cheaper than the ‘ordinary’ petrol driven ones; and they are already much, much cheaper to run, so everyone will be wanting one.
So come along and try them out, from the seriously whacky Twizzy to the seriously cool Tesla Model S, with the more sensible ones in between; because your next car – or perhaps your next but one – will probably be electric.
