Anyone own an electric car?

Typical life span of about 10 years in a battery. Residual value of your car is linked to battery life too.

Are you getting the vehicle on HP, cash purchase, PCP?

How long are you planning on keeping the car?

What is the difference in cost between purchase / rental?

Weigh these things up when considering whether to go rental or purchase.

I doubt the batteries will last longer than 4 years before they start dropping from 20% charge to empty in five mins , just like my mobile phone did. Luckily a new battery was only £15 - a tad more for a car!

Plug in hybrid is the way forward at the minute. Step dad has a Passat gate and gets around 900 mile to the tank.

Depends what you do, Mrs drives around the doors & we have my car to do long journeys, looked at all the pros & cons & it looks ideal, no need for a hybrid
