4. EV COMMUNITY: EV TUESDAY READER

Myke, an EV Tuesdays Reader
One of our regular readers sent this link in to us this week. This is a trial in the process of being studied into charging access via footpath channels, in Nottinghamshire. Myke is on the understanding they are still looking for applications, in which he has applied to take part in, but have yet to hear a result. Take a read and perhaps put your name forward too.


5. EV REVIEW: AUTO EXPRESS

Mini Cooper

MINI Cooper review: a fun and sophisticated EV. The MINI Cooper SE is not cheap, but it does have that air of sophisticated fun that’s made the reborn brand such a success over the past two decades.

Compact dimensions and a modest battery mean that this is not a car that will win prizes for practicality or even EV range – but it oozes quality and has just enough dynamic spark to feel like a MINI.

We can’t wait to try the forthcoming petrol-powered versions to see if they offer a similar experience for much less cash.


BLOG VERSION EXTRA
