From work colleagues who own an iPace. Sure you can get 220 miles, but do you really want to drive at 55mph on the motorway?
Not that I can criticise, I will need to visit every other filling station soon, the ipace will be far quicker from A to B on a long journey 馃ぃ

Guess it depends what your journeys are like. It also seems the older cars suffer more.

Scenario 1:

You 'start' the leccy car to defrost/warm it before setting off, then have a 100+ mile journey, sit in some heavy congestion with heater on full blast, maybe have to do this 4 days of the week.......

For me at present, I can't see the leccy car replacing my amber nectar motor......yet (battery anxiety!)

COVID not involved for this scenario lol

Maybe, but that's what I can do in 'normal' times.........

So for me, which is where I'm judging it from, it's not viable - although Mrs.R17 may be in the market in a couple of years........and the infrastructure might have moved on a tad

No idea but it鈥檒l be top of the range with every extra because he has an obscene amount of money.

I've never seen it ... Birmingham to West Yorkshire is apparently too far on one charge. Public charging is a lottery & a nightmare according to him.

Zap Map ... he pays people to tech for him!

What he really needs is a Model S Plaid+ with the 500 mile range.

Just specced one up for me (mid way on most options), just shy of 50k. Silly money.

I think my next step would be a change of main car totally (maybe SUV), and keep the XK for my Jaguar fix & 鈥渘ice trips鈥.
