Final Day of the Electric Car – Day 7

Day 7

So now the children are fighting over who can go out in the Leaf next and debating if actually they could drive the car themselves! They love it. Despite the debacle yesterday, which I reiterate was all caused by my own stupidity in not switching on the wall socket, I’m still very positive about the EV. Infact the writing could be on the wall for Flash (my yellow Audi S1 Quattro). I would urge you to give an electric vehicle a try. What’s the worst that could happen (errrm, see day 6). Regular day to day driving is simply easy and practically free. A longer trip needs a little more planning but hey, once upon a time, we used to look up the route using maps before setting off!

The Nissan Leaf.. It really is plug and play! I can’t think my 9 year olds will be driving anything other than an electric vehicle in 8 years time. As one son nonchalantly put it: “At least there won’t be any wars over who owns the oil to make petrol anymore.” What more can I say. EVs rock!
