High­way rob­bery

Autocar - - LETTERS -

I read your 19 Septem­ber is­sue with in­ter­est. The piece on buy­ing a banger for £200 along­side the ar­ti­cle on the Jaguar I-pace sums up the cur­rent sit­u­a­tion for or­di­nary folk.

Why spend a sum of money north of £50,000 on a car when you can’t be sure of reach­ing your des­ti­na­tion with­out hav­ing to stop for cof­fee and elec­tric­ity while wor­ry­ing the whole time when you can buy some­thing pretty de­cent for £1500 – and drive wher­ever you need to go with­out any of the range anx­i­ety?

In ad­di­tion, the de­pre­ci­a­tion on a cheap car will be tri­fling, un­like an elec­tric car. The elec­tric car move­ment has a long way to go yet.
