£33000! You could buy a car for that!!

64kwh is enough battery for 2 electric cars, if every car in uk moves to an electric car with batteries this size, we will be doing more damage to planet earth via lithium mining and dumping.
my guess is a vw up is more environmetally friendly than a 64kwh car, if you are doing less than 5k a year no,due to the co2 used to make the battery in the first place.

Range is all important for electric cars to become popular, we don't all live in urban slums like London, Birmingham or Manchester. Therefore the larger the battery the better for real people in this country, the people that matter.
The problem is you can get a standard Kona for nearly half the price and the hybrid version for £10k less. That is a lot of money left over to buy a lot of fuel! Until full electric get closer to the normal vehicle prices take-up is going to be limited.
Without bigger government subsidies I can't see how they will ever reach their targets.

i agree, a range of 150miles like most ev have is no use to me, and as there are only two chargers within a ten mile radius of me then they are not exactly convenient to use. until range is that of a petrol car, and charging is just as quick as filling with petrol then we will never see a big uptake, until of course, all ice cars are forced out of the market in a mere 12 years...

That makes no sense,the people that live in the country do not suffer from air pollution like built up urban cities, makes more sense to put low range electric cars taxis buses in the cities to reduce air pollution (i.e petrol diesel particles)
CO2 is a concern, but any car uses about 15 tonnes of CO2 just to make (0 miles), with more on top of that for the battery.
plus battery has to be charged from power station which are not made out of thin air. If we all move to big land rovers suvs with 80kwh battery's because we cant wait for a 15 minute fast charge, then planet earth is fruit caked.
A VW UP ice engine, with a particle filter added to the exhaust will be a lot greener than a large SUV electric car with huge battery

This appears to be a topic of special interest for you that you have invested time to learn a lot about, so your perspective and insight is informative. Car wise I would really like a diesel electric hybrid say with a 1600cc low emissions Cat 6 engine and an electric range of at least 250 miles. I would use the electric for short trips and the diesel for long trips. I wouldn't want to have to charge it more than once a week and I would want to do that at home.
Rather have the MG ZS and save my money.
Voted hot. Good car for the money.

That's about the 'right price' for a Kona EV, before they hiked the price this was the RRP. Surprised they actually have stock.

Other than the general EV hate, I'd say this isn't bad if you're looking for a new car. Has traffic aware cruise control, lane keep assist and the other toys. Range is one of the best in the market (circa 300~ miles if you're not hooning around)

Only comment would be there's a bunch of new EVs that are about to hit the ground (Zoe 52 for example) that should help push the price down.

Fair point but the range is vastly less on the MG. MG is a great city car tho

Can we keep politics out of a deal about a car please. Don't bite
The price of electricity for charging electric cars will become extortionate as more and more cars are sold.
A 70kw car will take 10 hours to charge at 7kw per hour, or 5 hours at 14kw per hour, which is the equivalent of 5, 3kw electric kettles boiling continuously for 5 hours. This is just for one car, and a lot of households have more than one car. Imagine, all over the country, people plugging in their cars to charge them overnight, as will be the most likely, and the amount of electricity needed to satisfy the demand. The economy 7 night tariff will become a thing of the past, being replaced by the peak tariff as overnight becomes the peak usage period. The national grid cables will need to be heavily upgraded to cope with the extra demand, and anyone with 2 or more cars will need their house wiring upgraded to cope if they want to charge their cars at the same time.
Even if electric cars come down in price, they are not going to be as cheap to run as we are being led to believe, just as we were led to believe that diesel cars were the saviour of our society, only a few years ago.
Looks a good deal and better still if they have stock to meet demand. The Kona EV is a good car, if a little pokey size-wise. Highly amused by the flat-earth anti-EV brigade comments. Get educated people !

Being educated means knowing all the facts, not just the most appealing ones.
I am in favour of electric cars, (and most new technology), but unless there is a significant improvement in how electricity is generated, and distributed, we could be going down a very expensive road.

agree, and then you have to take into account all the rare earth metals, lithium,cobalt and neodynium that these cars need. If you ever see Aussie Gold hunters the amount of water and fuel they use just to get a but of shiny gold is scary to watch.

...and my point proven...so when was the last time Aussie Gold Hunters last mined for Lithium ? answer - never, so what is the relevance ? Lithium is one of the most abundant materials in the world and is less than 5% of the battery content - there are so many pollution controls out there that no-one is going to be just dumping used packs, especially considering how valuable these will be. The battery packs will likely out-perform the car they're in and packs are proving robust past several hundreds of thousands of miles.

If your concern is about cost of electricity and specifically for people charging at home (and who won't need to upgrade their supply by the way) then answer this - are the powers that be really going to jack the price of electricity, because unlike petrol stations, they can't just ramp the prices and make the motorist pay, they will be having to make everyone pay more. Clearly that ain't gonna fly so predicting something that is so vastly unlikely to happen is just wanton scaremongering and casts doubt on any claim to be "educated" on the subject.

Oh, and having run (and currently running our second) two EVs I can assure you, they are significantly cheaper to run than any petrol or diesel car.

I will educate you a bit more then.
Of course the Government will be able to make the motorists pay more for electricity when charging their cars, that is what smart meters are designed for. The smart meters should easily be able to sense when a car is being charged due to the high kilowatts being drawn, and automatically set the price of that electricity accordingly. The Government will also be looking to recoup the significant duty and tax they levy at present on petrol and diesel, and that could also be factored into the cost of the electricity when charging the cars. The technology is already available to set the price of electricity as and when it is needed, and if you still think that is 'predicting something that is so vastly unlikely to happen', the Government already have the means to do it, and if they have the means to do it, they probably will do it. Your electric cars might be cheaper to run at the moment than any petrol and diesel cars, but that saving in fuel cost has to be offset by the high original cost of the vehicles, and the depreciation. As soon as electric cars become mainstream, and the fuel duty and tax from petrol and diesel vehicles starts diminishing, the Government stance will quickly switch from being 'Green', to being 'Greedy', and taxing electric cars whilst they are charging will not be overlooked.

Fully agree, I think you're pretty much spot-on in what you say in this and your previous comments.
When electric cars become mainstream, and we have no alternatives, they will become just as expensive to run as petrol and diesel cars are now.

But how many people will be putting 70kwh into their battery everyday? That's almost nobody.
If the average mileage is 7900 miles per year and the average usage is 4 miles/kwh then people will be charging about 5.5kwh per day.

The average 4kw solar system provides 3400kwh per year so about 9.5kwh per day.

So in the summer there should be ample electricity in the grid system. In the winter solar will need more support. An increase in wind production is needed.



So for example the car has a 50kwh battery and over the weekend and some slow charging over Sunday night is full.
The car gets used on Monday and is down to 88%. Do you need to charge it? No.
Some people will need to charge everyday and some won't need to charge all week.

I think in the future smart meters and smart charging will be important. Just set the charger for a buy-in price and plug the car in. Then when there is excessive supply in the grid the price will drop and the car will charge.

But the smart thing will be try and mitigate the grid as much as possible and have solar system on your roof.

The Government could insist that home car charging is done through a separate meter, then slap a tax of xx% on the electric used through that meter, job done. No road charging system needed, the money would be collected for them by the energy companies and going straight in to the Government coffers.
There is probably some Government aide reading this and copying my comments down into a little notebook, ready to introduce the idea as their own at a future Downing Street transport meeting

Smart meters may not be compulsory at present, but eventually they will be. The Government will change the law and allow for a meter to be fitted when a property changes hands or a tenancy ends, as they did with water meters, or they will allow excessively high tariffs for anyone not on a smart meter to "persuade" them to change. Either way, the outcome is the same, you will end up with a smart meter, and they will be able to clearly see when you are using your car charger(s) and charge you the appropriate (higher) rate.
