Paul

 

What is the make, model and year of your EV?

What got you into an EV in the first place? 
After owning 3 Toyota Hybrids (2 x Prius and an Auris) the penny finally dropped. I decided to get rid of the engine, gearbox, clutch, fuel tank, sump oil, exhaust system, catalytic converter, radiator and settle for a battery, inverter and an electric motor. Much simpler and less to go wrong.

What didn’t you know to begin with?
I spent time looking up electric vehicles, the government grant available and the charging network. All seemed to make sense to help the environment and save money too.
