In the market for an electric car. My daily miles are only around 30 so the range is ok. Need a medium size family car that is fun to drive.

Sorry I have added it now. My first post!

Works out at £365p/m over 23months-imo not such a great deal for this car I'm afraid.

Mmmmmmm leasey

Sorry but this is cold from me, very high insurance group for this car is going to make the savings a pointless exercise. Considering a normal golf that performs better across the board than this GTE model is vastly cheaper (even in the lease world) and also happens to have better reviews I'd take that.

The problem, as is often the case with hybrid models, is that the … The problem, as is often the case with hybrid models, is that the headline figures are very difficult to achieve in real-word driving. Unless you charge the car every day and always drive with efficiency in mind, you won’t get close to the claimed 166mpg. Plus, we found the car’s range on pure electric power to be closer to 20 miles than 31.



My own car has a claimed fuel efficiency of 70mpg, I get 55 and I don't drive like a maniac. For the money I think I'd rather just buy a normal car with an engine rather than preparing the world for all the pollution of the batteries needing to be replaced and recycled in 10 years time.

Another thing I dislike is the requirement to plug the thing in, if it's lashing down with rain (something the UK is quite familiar with) then most would not want to spend their time messing about plugging it in to charge at each end. For me the battery technology is too early in it's development and needs some sort of wireless charging before I'd see an electric/hybrid as a viable option.

Had one of these for 3 days to test last week. It is a very nice car, did around 100 miles and it cost me approx £4, would have cost a lot more in my Fiesta ST as I didn't hold back either. Charged it for free in my local town centre and it was chucking it down. They are indeed safe to charge in the rain btw.
Smooth drive and good power. The biggest downer for me was not having to charge it, but the time it took to charge it - 3 1/2 hours.

Ouch. You could get a Golf R for this money

This isnt an electric car, its a hybrid.

I do love the idea of the GTE, and if you live in a congestion charge area i'm guessing you will reap the benefits the most, but for now i think i will stick with my 21mpg Golf R32

You'd be much better off looking the Renault Zoe offers.

Fully Electric with a range of 60 - 80 on a full charge.

Mine is costing £154 a month for 3 years, mileage is limited to 7500PA.

A month in and I cannot fault it. Bloody brilliant little car, that isn't that little!!
