The 17" wheels fitted to the Tekna e+ have a slightly larger rolling radius than the 16" ones I had on my Acenta. I live down a pretty rugged lane and since changing car I've not scraped bottom at one of the places it occasionally happened.I can't give you a figure, I'm afraid, but ground clearance is critical for me - my Mum lives in the Peaks and her drive is very steep with a ledge near the top.
The Leaf 24 and 30, wouldn't go down. The 40 will. I've found you can get more ground clearance by increasing the tyre pressure - OK, so that is a bit obvious, but it does work.
Have you considered filling in some of the ruts on your track?I need ideally about 20cm ground clearance on my next car, which will be an EV.
Does yours look like it is technically feasible to raise it to that height?
You just can't get over being a tiny minority in the global scheme. Economics trumps needs unfortunately.Like most people who live in the countryside, we would prefer to have more capable cars than the average weedy Townymobile that whimpers at cracks in the road.
Thank you for your useful contribution. Now go tell 44% of the world's rural population that they are a tiny minority.You just can't get over being a tiny minority in the global scheme. Economics trumps needs unfortunately.
Your needs will be serviced when the low hanging fruit of millions of "weedy Towny" people has been satisfied.
Yawn, you spent weeks spouting about this on another thread a few months back. In the wealthy parts of the world, you are a minority, as tarmac roads service 99% of all journeys, with just the last 1% being off road. And you don't want a decent costly BEV 4 x4, you want some cheap franken skivvy 4 x 4 / 2wd BEV like the ICE FIAT Panda one they made.Thank you for your useful contribution. Now go tell 44% of the world's rural population that they are a tiny minority.
Just because you never get off the tarmac, doesn't mean billions of others don't.
Your problem is the 44% of the world you include yourself in have maybe 1% of the worlds money. So because you are poor, or tight, they don't make new cars for you, you cant afford to buy them new and make the OEM's a profit. So they dont bother, and nether will.So, I don't need a Fairywagon with 5 USB ports, Infotainment centre and arse warmers that does 150mph and spins on the spot. Nor do most of the 44% of us who don't live in cities!
