An industry-wide shift to electric vehicles dictates that many HEXUS readers will be contemplating purchasing their first EV in the months and years ahead.
All the big names are now releasing purely electric models that are crammed with enough tech to convey a futuristic look and feel, and though I'm far from a car enthusiast, I can see the attraction. My current motor will almost certainly be the last to feature an internal combustion engine.
But the change won't come easy to everyone. Electric cars are fundamentally different and require users to revise the way in which they drive and maintain their vehicle. Charging obviously needs to be taken into consideration, there's typically more tech to confuse some users (my dear mum still struggles with climate control), and with no such thing as a manual electric car, a whole lot of folk are going to be making their first foray into an automatic.
Plenty to consider and what better way to get a grasp of what lies ahead than to hear from existing EV owners? If that's you, here's your chance to share some insight for those of us sat on the fence. We want to know what owning an EV car is really like - how much does it cost to charge, did the driving experience feel natural, is range a concern, etc. - and, ultimately, whether or not you're happy with your purchase.
