What a load of idiotic statements of the bleeding obvious about EVs written (doubtless at great expense) by someone who probably doesn’t have one.
Could someone please explain to me why the fact that 85% of journeys are less than 15 miles means that there should be no range anxiety? 90% of the times I step into the road without looking, I don’t get killed, so why should I worry about looking?
Heaven save us from consultants. And I were one. And I’m (well) over 55. And another thing...

We oldies get blamed for a lot of stupid things , like voting for Brexit - there was a very simplistic view that young people voted Remain and oldies voted Leave. I think the main concern for oldies with EVs is the prospect of dying while waiting for it to charge! :D

No wonder I was having trouble persuading my better half into an I Pace!

57 here. And I drove 350 rain-soaked motorway-heavy miles London-Sheffield-London yesterday with just one refill, so no range anxiety either!

Thanks, this made me laugh. I was going to say I didn't realise that being in your 50's was considered old, but then I thought that was sort of an old thing to say...

What a load of Bulls Testicles.
I've just sorted out a 4000 mile trip up to the Arctic Circle for next July. Not going in the luxury of the I-Pace. No shortage of Chargers in Norway...
I'm going on the Motorcycle because I can. I'll be almost 67 by the time the trip takes place.
I could go in the car but I'm travelling with a bunch of other old guys. I went to Corsica and Sardinia with them last year and it was a blast.
Range anxiety? Not in Norway there isn't.
Driving "Hirundo Rustica" since 15th Mar 2019. Lovely Jubbly :D :D
