    Mindset of the driver, easy when your’e use to an EV, just a bit of pre planning a few days ahead. just like the weekly food shopping, it’s getting better by the day.

    I think the answer will be workplace chargers as a staff benefit. So if someone goes to work, they plug it in for 8 hours. The staff benefit is, instead of, losing 8 hours of use, while it is on charge at home, they can actually use the piece of crap like a normal car 😂

    20% Vat versus 5% at home, plus the profit of the provider and time wasted charging at the provider, without charging at home, EVs just cost and cost..

    As an EV owner I couldn’t agree more, i couldn’t imagine not having a home charger and relying on the public network.

    so do you have a petrol station at home? Of course not. We’re in the early stages of private transport electrification, like say 1900 in combustion car terms. There’s a long way to go yes, but for many many people EVs already make so much sense than ICE.

    Strange. Up here in the north of Scotland I’ve had no issues running an EV for six months without any home charging. Must be an England problem… 😉

    Someone made the comment “so do you have a petrol station at home?”
    Well I don’t but there are more petrol stations than chargers (and the majority of petrol stations work).
    It takes approx 5 mins to fill up a tank rather that an hour plus to recharge.
    I can pay by cash / card for petrol and I don’t have to register / sell my life story to multiple charging companies just to pay / use a charger.
    The government is pushing everyone to go electric but the charging infrastructure is woeful.
    I remember many governments telling us how it would cost pennies to fully charge a car, however on planet earth it’s costing just as much as petrol.
    Charging at work is ok for now until the government charges us for that also.

    Totally agree with you and this is why I’ll stick with petrol.

    I will run my EV until someone stops me from parking my car on the grass and dragging a cable across the pavement, it’s that or a Diesel pickup.

    Well said Pete as I live in an apartment block therefore without home charging it is too expensive currently to use public chargers.

    In London, many moan about the mayor, but they are installing them on lamp posts, 7kw, great for overnight! In mole valley, Ashtead, they have just installed 10 in the village carpark,free parking O/N. This is what needs to be done all over the country but do we have the power infrastructure?
