Other readers continued to underline the limited practicalities of owning an EV.
‘Bonyparte’ said: ”It takes me four minutes to fill my diesel tank. Until an EV can charge up within the same time I will never ever consider changing my car.”
‘Stacpollaidh’ replied: “Plus you do not need a new diesel engine every six to eight years, and it will not become virtually worthless to try and sell it on at that age.”
‘Mazzdiver’ concurred, writing: “Recently, members of my family travelled up from London to Yorkshire, two sevice stations had people waving cars through the slip roads as there was a long line of electric cars waiting to get a charge, so a loss of custom for the service station, and a couple of hours wait to charge an EV, complete and utter madness.”
