      As mentioned depends on the car. Also if charging at home in ac will take longer than if you go to a dc charger. Dc chargers can handle 350kW but most cars only handle around 150kW but as said 10-80% around 40 minutes then charge slows down after 80%. Takes just as long from 80-100% than it does from 10-80

        On DC it'll ramp down from about 50%. But as you say, beyond 80% is very slow. Shouldn't charge above 80% on DC anyway.

        Not got Google?

        Depends on the car and size of battery

                Go Hybrid

                Surely much more flexible currently.

                Or are you thinking electric in 10 years?

                  Hybrid is the motor-vehicle equivalent of a washer-drier. Twice as much stuff to go wrong and all the time you're using it one half is killing the other.

                    Was thinking 2/3 years as the C1 is a cracking little car and still low mileage at 8 years old 47k, we tend to make our car plans in the long term . due to being poor .

                      Youíve made references to being poor on here continually for a very long time. Ever thought about changing careers or taking a 2nd job to increase your income? Move to a smaller house and reduce your bills and pocket some Money? Itís incredibly bizarre to continually mention and moan about being poor whilst seemingly doing nothing to change the fact.

                      I think it depends on the type of driving you do predominantly. If it's mostly small commutes then hybrids seem to make a lot of sense but most have pretty small electric ranges.

                        I do about 4 x 500 mile round trips south a year than all local.
                        I realise size of unit can dictate ,i dont buy large cars my C1 is low emission i believe C2s are as well

                          You can pick up a Renault Zoe very cheaply. Not far off a C1 in size. To be honest, they have depreciated massively, so represent a bargain route into battery car ownership.

                            Posted by jimmyp on 21/9/2023, 17:43:48, in reply to "Re: Electric car question"

                            Except that the reason that they've depreciated massively is the reason you don't want to buy one.

                            If you're going to have an electric car, lease a brand new one and then hand it back after a few years and get a new one so the battery life is someone else's problem. Or drive a petrol car, which is probably more environmentally friendly.
