We have recently bought an Ampera. It was a bit of a leap of faith as unlike most ev owners we are retired and are only doing about 9000 miles a year, however we do have solar panels and are able to charge during the day.

Welcome Simpson:)

Just plug the car in when on the drive and use like all other cars.
The main benefit the Volt is that does not need thinking about, its my wifes daily driver and is used 80% of the time on electric only, the remainder is mostly journeys over 150 miles.
One of the other benifits is when you get in it on the drive it is full, where as unlike our last ICE car which my wife had perfected the art of driving on fumes. It gave me massive range anxiety as to the possibilty of making the petrol station at two in the morning when its my job to pick up our teenage daughter.:D
