DP64 drives a MG ZS EV and shares how they got started with this electric car.
Why did you buy this electric car?
Good price with all the things I wanted from a car.
What got you into an electric car in the first place?
I did not like the car I had bought. I needed something with more space etc. so decided that if I was going to change, I might as well go EV.

What sources of information helped you e.g. people, groups, websites etc?
Forums such as UK Electric vehicle, MG Forum etc, websites too for the different cars we were looking at.
What are your top 3 pieces of advice for those people considering their first electric car?
- Think about what your needs are regarding size, space and mileage
- Find out as much information as possible on EVs
- Consider how you’ll charge the car – Can you charge from home? Will you be reliant on public chargers?
