Time for them to reconsider the business model, such travelling is not worthwhile.but no-one seems to get that anyone doing high mileage, you know, the business men that sell things far and wide, do not want to stop every 2 hours for a 1 hour charge (or in answer to Favguy, 2 hours every 3 hours). And that's not even counting for doing the speed limit with a bit of cold / rain thrown in.
That kind of business practice, along with the vehicles they currently drive, are going the way of the dodo. Maybe not in the next 5 years, maybe not in the next 10, but it will happen.the business men that sell things far and wide, do not want to stop every 2 hours for a 1 hour charge (or in answer to Favguy, 2 hours every 3 hours). And that's not even counting for doing the speed limit with a bit of cold / rain thrown in. People are just so blinkered on here.
What a silly comment.I'm not sure that covid lockdown has proved things can be done differently - we're all bankrupt !!
4 minutes a month ...compared with going out to a fossil fuel station, pumping fuel and then queueing to pay. Electricity wins in nearly all cases. Oh and clean air.If I could drive at 75 mph for 200 miles, that would be the most I'd ever need, as it would mean breaking after 3 hours or so, the maximum I would ever drive at speed without a break, and give me 300 miles or so in normal use. I think the current crop of 60kWh or so cars can already do that. Anything more is just adding weight and range that I'll never need!
In reality, my MG's current range has never caused me any inconvenience at all beyond occasionally having to plug in at home twice a week instead of once. I really resent that extra 2 minutes I lose about twice a month!
Another silly comment, is there any point in replying if you are just being facetious.@EVJourney well I guess 40 people out of a working population of 30 million or so is a suitable survey, I just hope the ambulances and firemen can reach your house from their home offices.
How many of those people will be driving beyond the range of even a modest electric car to get to work? Not many.I just hope the ambulances and firemen can reach your house from their home offices.
Making words up that I didn't write, quality way of having a discussion. Point to where I said "everyone can work from home without a car".. er... I didn't so you can'twhy silly ? you've just based your"everyone can work from home without a car" comment on a 40 person company, in what line of work may I ask ?
