Well I've read it - but wasn't impressed with this claim :-dash said:
Later in the review it mentions its (improved) range of 99 miles. Are we to assume that the writer thinks that "most people" either drive more than 99 miles per day (= 36,000+ miles per year !) or don't spend the night in their beds (when they could be charging their car) ?VW's electric e-up! only works well if you are able to charge it often. That means the petrol powered up! models will make the most sense for the most people.
I also rarely do more than 70 miles/day but on the occasions that I do, I want to be able to hop in the car and complete the trip without having to plan the journey around recharging stops.EricM said:Whilst mine claims it can do 92 miles on a full battery when I look at it when unplugging, in practice I can't do much more than 70 miles before it flags up a warning. However, I rarely do anything like 70 miles per day in it nor I suspect would most other owners. Even 70mpd (or 25,000+ miles per year) seems well above 'average' use.
Not a problem for me as I have another car that we use for long journeys.Up!_to_Mii said:An e-Up could cope with my needs 95% of the time - it's the 5% that is the issue.
