    Our current car gets just over 300 miles on one tank of petrol which costs £50 to fill. That is mixed town and a significant amount of motorway driving. None of these cars on our current electricity tarifff would cost more than £7 to top up. Therefore I’m assuming that I’d get a whole tank of petrol for £15 tops! What’s not to like? I wish you’d included the MG ZS EV, as I’d love to know what the real range of that is. It boasts 163 miles, but…

    Not very helpful really. None of these cars have a practical useful range. If you want to drive 300 miles to Scotland you'd have to make stopovers to re charge and the journey would be quicker by coach or train. If your sat nav sends you on a wrong turning you run out of power miles from anywhere - so useful.

    At those prices they will never take off , it’s ridiculous, and the price of the batteries is beyond all credibility...I can’t see them ever replacing a conventional car at those inflated prices..So it doesn’t matter how good or bad they are because they are just unaffordable..Now in years to come if the prices fall and the range is improved then yes they will very probably become the norm..

      @Sarang Tambe I wondered how long it would take for someone to reply. There is nothing wrong with French cars in fact they make some of the best looking cars on the road as my wife says during our business road trips, it’s just that I’m a patriot and would not buy from any car company so close to home. Even though most Uk based car companies are foreign owned a fair proportion goes back into the Uk economy. Please do not take my comment as a insult on the French car industry.

A battery powered economy isn’t going to make our lives as comfortable as an oil based one. If you want to save the environment then start by planting trees. Not cut them down and digging holes in our natural world in the pursuit of the rare-earth elements needed for solar wind and batteries. Already the mining conglomerate are looking for lithium in my area to exploit for profit. Where’s the green energy in that.

    Well, what a surprise, the the car with the biggest battery runs furthest. I could analogise by comparing my current car (Fiesta) and my previous car (Clio) - both diesels and the Fiesta is (supposedly) more economical (it really is NOT...), but yet the Clio could run 150-200 miles further on a tankfull. Magic? No - the Clio had a 55-litre tank and the Fiesta's is only 40 litres. In fact, with a nod to all the range anxiety associated with electric cars, I will suffer range anxiety in this diesel Fiesta when I try to complete a 525-mile run to Germany on a tankfull, something that the Clio could do with a vast amount left over. The Fiesta is also much less comfortable over a long distance. All in all, Ford just DO NOT build cars with consideration of long distance motoring. Driver's cars my arse.... I'm so disappointed - no more Fords for me, once bitten twice shy.
    Also - correct me if I'm wrong, but with the Zoe, you don't own the battery - you buy the car and then pay Renault a rental charge for the battery afterwards?
