- For all the green car drivers etc
Get yourself down to a Jaguar dealer and snap up an I-Pace, just won 2019 World Car of the Year, 2019 World Car Design of the Year and 2019 World Green Car.
‘Breaking news from the New York International Auto Show: the World Car of the Year jury has just announced that the all-electric Jaguar I-PACE is now officially the best car in the world!’
Dont bother waiting for the Audi eTron (less range and performance than I-Pace), snap one of these Jags up first.Posted 1 month agoluketSubscriber
2019 World Green Car is an SUV. So it uses more energy per mile than any normal car format EV. And it costs more to buy than any mass market EV that isn’t made by Tesla. It might be a great car in other ways but this is a worrying signal about what these judges see as “green”.Posted 1 month agomatt_outandaboutSubscriber
Pffft, my car won Best Tow Car, Best Winter car, Best Family car and best Estate car.*
And it’s red.**
Red is faster than green. #science_fact

*These are facts I’ve only just found out due to the power of the interwebs.
**Plus it has a male sign as it’s badge, making me more attractive and suave.chvckSubscriber
Are you prepared to walk or ride fifteen miles each way to work and back?
Yes, when we move soon my commute will be 18 miles each way. I’ll have to use an ebike because of my MS so it’s not quite as eco friendly as it could be but I don’t have any choice in that one. I only go into the office 2 or 3 times a week and when it’s really cold I’ll probably bike to the train station but I’m still going to try to do it as much as I can, whilst I can.Posted 1 month agotimbog160Subscriber
It doesn’t matter what car you drive – you could drive a 5 litre supercharged Range Rover (like I briefly did) and swap it for a Prius and it won’t make a blind bit of difference unless we all drive LESS. Walk, cycle, get a bus or a train. Then you can have whatever car you want and just use it for the pleasure of driving on the rare occasion you do drive…Posted 1 month ago
How do you know? You are making some hideous assumptions there
Real road tests are showing 150 – 200 mile range from a single charge, that far exceeds the average UK journey. Or are you assuming something different?
Nor is it likely to be true all the time.
Well course it’s not true all the time but it’s far more accurate than every trip requires a recharge.Posted 1 month ago
