Everything you wanted to know about electric cars

Are EVs right for you? And are they right for the environment?

A fascinating presentation by Anthony Simpson, Research Associate (Renewable Energy and Electric Vehicles), University of Reading.

A meeting of Chinnor and Thame Friends of the Earth, December 2019.

Interesting to compare this with my first outing to explore the possibility of getting an electric car eleven years ago in 2008. That took me to the London Motor Show and some wonderfully unlikely early attempts to create a practical electric car (most rated as ‘quadracycles’ rather than cars). Still they were the pioneers that (along with Tesla) got us to where we are today. Pity it’s so late. At that time Gordon Brown was talking about going all electric by 2020!
