Re: New Members.

Yeah, always plenty of lurkers on any forum.

Re: EV sales down

For me, they're going to need to be a *lot* cheaper before I could even consider dipping a toe in the water. For one thing, I need a decent size car with a lot of boot space for work and so the current entry-level models wouldn't cut it, and that's before we consider the range. Whilst *most* of my r...
