I write for The Register and am going to be reviewing a C-Zero and an e-UP over the next few weeks. I'm keen to hear from owners of these for background.

My electric car religious position is that I like all cars. No, I love all cars From Alfa to Zil.

This won't be a Petrolhead view that "nothing is worth having unless you have the roar of the V8" but neither will it be a "think of the children, the world must go electric".

My usage will be, what I think of as typical electric car, I live in a London suburb and work in central London. I'll park on my neighbour's drive and charge 13AMP (A 30 Amp socket is on order from British Gas). I don't have parking at work (EC1R). Any advice on where to park and charge is very welcome, but I guess that's for the charging part of this forum

I've driven the Tesla Roadster and the Leaf and I like the silence of an electric car. Actually I think ruling that electric cars will have to make a noise is a shame.

Simon.

hello Simon, added this to my watch thread list.

I have a bee in the bonnet over the E-up price as I think it would be great for someone going into a VW showroom and eyeing an automatic High-up, be told "of course for the same money you could consider an E-up"

I have a lovely blue Leaf, done 42,000 miles and believe where you see "range anxiety" read "price anxiety"

Yes they are in Milton Keynes it's a real lovely drive smooth and got a lot power. I set of in one with the car saying 88miles, after 10miles at 56mph in Eco++ mode when I got back it was saying 101miles remaining. Super little car

Hi Simon

The charging situation in the City is much worse than in Westminster. Your best bet may well be the West Smithfield car park.

To be fair, if it's VW group, it's most likely being driven around Milton Keynes. ;)
