RANGE ANX­I­ETY

The Northern Star - - MOTORING -

I’m con­sid­er­ing buy­ing an elec­tric car. My con­cern is we live in Mel­bourne and have a hol­i­day house in Moama. With the Hyundai Ioniq Elec­tric’s range of 230km at best we’d be stranded 3km short. What make of EV would go the dis­tance? If bud­get’s no con­cern there’s the Tesla Model S (up to 480km range) and Jaguar I-Pace (480km). Cheaper are the Re­nault Zoe (300km) and the com­ing Nis­san Leaf (up to 240km). EVs aren’t best suited to ev­ery­one right now. Per­haps the Ioniq Plug-in ver­sion (63km of pure elec­tric driv­ing) would suit you bet­ter.
