Default EV's

I'm very much not a car person but my dad is.

He's thinking about getting an EV and I wanted to be able to have some kind of a conversation about them with him.
Google is my friend but I wondered what ya;; think of EV's

Also for fun, what is your favorite EV if you had to pick one?


There is something moon soaked about her.
Something kissed by the wild and loved by lightning.
She looks like Artemis after a night of storm hunting.
She looks like the sun as it rises after kissing the dawn.

I'd have to say one of these two would be my favourite not to practical but they do show what electric vehicles can do, both on speed and distance (and advancing the technology that will become part of our road cars)




And the jaguar is a road car with some safety and braking modifications to make it race safe, but the same power unit as the standard road version, which is cool to show what it can do

I will agree with Jade on the Jaguar.
But if you are happy with maths, how about talking with him about the environment around EVs. Pending on what source of electricity you buy, the car is either good for the environment or no better than a diesel.
Since he is interested in EVs, that's probably a topic for him as well?

It's not my strongest. . . But I am keen on nature and the environment so will probably take that approach ~ Thanks!

Also I like the look/practicality of this EV: Mercedes-Benz EQC.

I think when it comes to electric vehicles it really depends on your situation. Whether you travel a regular distance every day and have a spare car can determine whether full electric or hybrid is best for example.

Yes. And what is the distance between chargers, so you don't have to have a problem in the middle of nowhere

Yeah, charging is becoming increasingly quick and some of the best ones charge the first 75% or something in a matter of minutes, but you definitely don't want to buy one only to find out you can't make it home each day!

Update!
We ended up looking at and testing the Tesla model X and the Mercedes EQC and dad ended up going with the Mercedes.
