Electric Cars

Friday, April 19th, 2013

Last weekend we went with my lovely hubby to see electric cars!

We need to change our car so we are considering electric. Electric cars are not for every body but they certainly would suit our needs.

We do not drive long distances, we are environmentally concious and we do not need a big car! plus I have to say that I really like the design from the Nissan Leaf!

Of course once you buy one of these cars you always have to hear the typical comments like: “would you not buy a real car” or “that is only a toy car”. Oh Well I still think that the advancements with electric cars have been great and that they are the car of the future!

We also heard that it is not a family car. Well, let me tell you that it is wider than many other cars and that you can even fit 3 children seats at the back! the front is so spacious too because the engine is much more smaller than in traditional cars.

The only down point of us is that we are still renting the apartment were we live so we can not charge the car from our electricity sockets 2 floors above the ground! so that really is making it very impractical for us at the moment!

Some photos to get you started:

Deeper boot than normally because there is no petrol deposit under the car!
