    I have yet to see electric that would be capable of towing a twin axle caravan.

    Its all a very new thought and just pondering ways to make things cheaper in terms of running the cars. I now have a 60 mile round trip for work, the wife does about 25 and we have a lot of coming and going with the little one. Weve got a drive and garage where charging wouldnt be an issue although wed probably have to stump up for a proper charge point and wed have the Siggy Tourer for long journeys etc so its not all in on the electric route. Thankfully we dont have anything to tow let alone a massive caravan!

    There are probably all sorts of options we could go down but I dont know know enough about electric cars to know if it would be viable or not. Only reason Im even thinking about them is my wifes cousin has just bought a Renault Zoe and really likes it.

    Not so good if you live in a flat.

    I worked for Toyota for 10 years, one of the leaders an pioneers in Electric vehicles.

    Personally, i think its a fad, and the latest thing, much like diesel was a decade or more ago. Now look at them!

    I know the carbon footprint of maniufacturing a Prius, used to be horrendus. The Lithium was mined one side of the world, shipped to the other, shipped back, etc. Not to mention Lithium supplies arent looking great.
    All that aside, charging them is still using nuclear or coal mostly when it boils down to it.

    Add in all the zero road tax. Thats just isnt sustainable. What happens when more people are driving these low / zero tax diesels, petrols and hybrids.
