    Hyundai Kona
    I like the look of the Kona and am seriously thinking of switching to it from my Golf GTE, but ... I would like to try it before making that decision and, as far as I can see, there is no way to get a test drive when doing CTB. 1. Does anyone know anywhere within reasonable striking distance...

  11. i3 rex test drive this weekend

    BMW i3
    Managed to organise a 2-day test drive with a local dealer as the missus and I have yet to find an EV we actually enjoy driving. We're actually a bit worried we might like the i3 too much, as it's not really suitable as the main car for a family of four. We're planning to try it on a mix of...
