Electric BINI to accelerate as fast as a Cooper S, but has a hopelessly small range by comparison with just about everything else these days. Also limited to 93mph. Starts around £25K after subsidy. Assembled at Cowley. Battery pack from the Glas-Werke, assembled from Chinese-made cells.

No more British engines for Sith Efrica - and Brexit IS to blame:

Similar range to the Honda Esaregood, so must be a city market demo thing.

More uglier though.

It’s failure of charging stations that creates the biggest headache travelling long distance in pure-electric vehicles.

I concur. There needs to be a lot more rapid/ultra chargers. More range helps, obviously. But if you knew that every 5 miles or so you’d have a few different chargers available that’ll give you enough range in 30 mins, then range anxiety wouldn’t be a thing and EV take up would gain momentum.

Plus more maintenance of the existing ones. Hopwood services have let me down badly a few times.

And! Why can’t they all accept contactless payments like the engenie and instavolt units, rather than the apps and RFID cards that others use.

What you're saying is HSD remains the best compromise.
