What’s it like to drive an electric car?
A lot more fun than you might think. Electric cars are more responsive than their combustion cousins, and handling is often better due to the lower centre of gravity.
Speed isn’t an issue, either. Electric vehicles can produce maximum torque at any time, so there’s no need to worry about moving through the gears to get going. The new e-Niro gets up to 60mph in around 7.8 seconds.
Talking of the new e-Niro. As far as efficiency goes, nothing really comes close. It can go up to 282 miles on a single charge. If you consider that the average UK commute is just 10 miles, that means most people could go a full two weeks without needing to recharge.
