Just wondering if this will be your first EV?

This will indeed be my first, although I've done a bit of driving in them

If I decide to go with this model, yet it will be my first! I have only ever driven an electric car once and it was years ago. I am not sure how they even feel but I know they are better for the environment and have been told they are more cost-efficient so I want to make the change for my next vehicle.

Well, drove a milk float around Belle Vue in Manchester in 1970, delivering catering supplies to outlets. So does the ariya I have on order count as my second EV?

I definitely think that counts !!! If it had 🔋 then it’s electric 😳 . Do you remember how many miles per charge 😂

Currently have a Mazda MX-30. Bought it 18 months ago at a, by today's standards, very modest price to see if I wanted to go EV. It has convinced me to stay EV. No problem with the puny battery but car a bit small so going for the bigger Ariya. I have selected the small battery which will still have twice the range of the Mazda thereby giving me additional travel opportunities. At the moment, if my destination is more than about 130 miles, I don't go in it!

I remember it was always running out of juice and we had to have it towed back by an elephant, well not really an elephant, just another milk float.

Should have said Belle Vue was a zoo in Manchester.
