    Here is the big problem with EV’s going forward. You can totally forget any claimed mileage range….why ?…..because these vehicles have instant torque and not a “curve” like an ICE car, this means that you will need to be VERY DISCIPLINED in how you drive it. The temptation of their performance will be so strong that it will eat into the range each and every time you are driving. To get the “claimed” range you will need to switch it to whatever green mode the car has, have no heating on, no air con, probably no lights on in the dark….and drive it like a nun. If you can do all those, then these cars are for you. I have just bought an EV and in the short time I have owned it, the whole problem is so obvious….

      That is total valid point. Upon picking up the model 3. I found my foot is getting heavier and heavier. Now it is pretty much 50% thorottle when light turns Green and reaching speed limit. Let alons the ultra low rate for Charging at night time taken away the only constraint for hard acceleration. 😂

      Not really. My model 3 performance, quicker and more powerful than these cars, was fairly easy to modulate between driving fast and taking it easy, with no significant discipline required or change of modes or any other faff.

    I can’t help wondering if providing ordinary family cars with this level of power and performance will generate problems. On wet, poor roads, drivers unused to such power could easily get into trouble, and in a few years when these are cheap enough for the boy racers to buy, it really could be quite frightening.
