This was a good week for EV reporting in the Autocar Magazine:
In summary:
- A fascinating article on Audi Q8 - all electric! This Leviathan is set to trump the Tesla S and X - not least by boasting a range of 370 miles! Hugely impressive, but surely not the car for the UK market? The Yanks will just love it - ideal for the school run, in Texas.
- A first review of a long term test car the Renault Zoe. Its faint praise again - but a glimmer of hope that the cars handling will erode the petrol head mentality;
- A look into emerging car technologies - including (too briefly) details of Ford C-Max EV, with a solar panelled roof!
- A fourth article documents the story of 2 people driving to Scotland to prove what an EV can do. However, its not the story of last weeks London-Edinurgh trip - but in fact its our trip from London to Inverness and 2 week in the Highlands! Its a 2 page spread under the title Highland Charge! The sub-title is 'Electric cars let you discover good old fashioned motoring'!
I wrote this article and you can see a Snapshot at https://plus.google.com/communities/116520796966821217655
I'm rather hoping that the ground is shifting at Autocar and that some further articles can be placed that will improve the public perception of EVs!
