EVs are so nearly nearly there though aren't they? I reckon when they genuinely do 200 miles to a charge (about 60kWh battery it seems) for about 25k new (and therefore pretty affordable when second hand), and come in all shapes and sizes (estate -please-), sales will really take off. They're not -quite- there yet, but I'm hoping it's two years before these come to market rather than five.

I think the tipping point is almost here yes- in the coming year we see the launch of a host of relatively small, relatively affordable BEVs with decent real-world ranges (give or take).  Guess it's all about the price of entry.

I'd add Seat El Born to that list, due next year, which is promised as 225 mile range (62kWh battery) for 28k (post current incentive), which makes it about 5k less than the Kona for a fairly roomy car. Will believe it when I see it, but if it matches those specs it would be great.

Oh yes I'd forgotten about that. Wonder if it'll be based on the VW iD3 or if it's an eGolf platform?

25k, albeit with incentive, but no battery lease I think. 50kWh battery, so probably 175 miles true range in reasonable conditions. And I think 100kW peak charging. Getting there... Slightly better buy than Zoe perhaps?
