3. EV TIP: PRE-CONDITION YOUR CABIN
One of the lesser-known features of electric cars, pre-conditioning allows you to pre-heat or pre-cool the car’s cabin before you start your journey. In the winter, it will heat the cabin, as well as demist and defrost windows. Ideally, you should pre-condition while your EV is plugged in at home, so that the battery is not used to warm up the car, which reduces your overall mileage.

5. EV REVIEW: AUTO EXPRESS
Peugeot E-308 SW Estate
Peugeot E-308 SW Estate: Peugeot has entered the electric estate car market with the E-308 SW, and made a very good fist of it. The Peugeot 308 was one of the first family hatchbacks to commit to an all-electric version, back in 2021. But the model’s estate variant has remained petrol only. That changes now, with the arrival of the new E-308 SW, a fresh entry into the comparatively rarified market of all-electric estates.
