You're in charge: Going electric

Five laps of the M60 on a single charge

For only a tenner

Talking with people about electric cars, the same concern comes up again and again: range anxiety. And yet modern electric cars have a large and expanding range. If you need a car, and add in the cost benefits of EVs, the case for going electric becomes compelling.

This example is based on a 62kWh Nissan LEAF.
