Scotland 2008 Range Rover Vogue SE TDV8 Java Black

Yip, range anxiety is still an issue to a lot of people, myself included.

If they could produce a car that has a theoretical range of say 1000km, giving a real life range in all conditions of say 500km, I might reconsider.

Oh and the price is reasonably affordable and the batteries don’t need replaced after 3-5 years.

Not in my lifetime, I rather suspect. Whistle Got - 2008 TDV8 Vogue SE in Java black

Charging time at home would be an issue, local supplu isn't that good at best. I don't know how many AMPS are available to this house but I'm sure the charging time would be impacted.

Most domestic properties have an 80 or 100amp fuse in the supply companies cut-out.

You should be good for at least 50 odd amps. However, if you have storage heaters..........

It also depends on how good the grid is in your area - it's designed on the basis that not everyone draws full load at the same time. Look forward towards more power cuts or "brown-outs" as the use of EV's increases.

I have a 1923's built house & the incoming cable is the equivalent of 6mm2 (which is generally rated around 40 amps) - but I have a 100amp fuse to "protect" it. The incoming voltage goes up & down like a yo yo but National Grid will not do anything about it until it fails completely.
In the meantime EDF get a bill every time something like a central heating controller fails (they always argue, but always pay up in the end - after all, they are providing a faulty product".)

Next time you see Nation Grid guys working on the network ask them how well the older parts will cope.......... 2003 Range Rover Vogue TD6

Almost everything is electric except a gas hob on LPG, electric here can be difficult at times of peak demand

If there is no mains gas in your area then a lot of people will have storage heaters so not too much capacity left for charging up electric mice.

At least most electrical equipment thesedays is quite tolerant of yo you voltages - I'm old enough to remember when the picture would shrink in the old 405 line TV's when the voltage was down ! 2003 Range Rover Vogue TD6
