As I am not a business car user I am not yet tempted by electric.
I don’t like the X look either, it looks like my S on steroids. I wonder whether the I Pace will eat into the Velar target market? Certainly IMO once you’ve experienced an EV drivetrain an ICE seems archaic, but the lack of a reliable quick long distance charging network will be a big turn off.
Interested in why not being a business user puts you off EV’s?
Only that I cannot benefit from the tax breaks. 100% first year allowance, 9% Benefit in Kind rather than over 30%, reduced NIC. Without those benefits Tesla's are much more expensive than petrol alternatives which I would consider.
I have driven a Model S and found it pretty special.
Would you tell us more about the different charging options?
