This week we talk about at the Volkswagen e-Golf, a really superb electric vehicle which successfully bridged the gap from traditional petrol or diesel car to fully fledged electric car.
This really was a superb vehicle on every level, the handling was just amazing. It was incredibly easy to drive and once I had got the handle of ‘Park Pilot’, that too was amazing. A really great car, and a head turner too!.
Thanks to VW Press Office for supplying the car with everything I would ever need and thanks to the two delivery drivers who were equally polite and helpful.
Dont forget to listen to the stream above, and wait for the full review coming soon!
This week I chat to Mark about the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV an absolutely superb four wheel drive plugin hybrid electric vehicle.
I loved driving this vehicle, it was so easy to drive and manoeuvre and is packed to the brim with it’s own gadgets.
Listen to the stream and find out more, a full in depth review is coming soon on here, so keep checking back!!
Thanks to Mitsubishi Press Office for being so kind by lending us the vehicle!!
We also chatted about blocked charge bays at Waitrose. This is something I continue to witness (see above, the Golf is fully electric).
Waitrose were approached to comment on this and replied below:-
‘Our Ipswich shop has four dedicated parking bays for customers to charge their electric cars whilst shopping in-store. While we are not aware of any misuse of the electric charging bays, we will continue to regularly monitor the car park to ensure that those who require charging, can do so.’
This week, we talk about and demonstrate the Dyson Hot+Cool Air Multiplier. This is Dyson take on the heating and cooling fan. It is bladeless and quite quiet, it’s also great at quickly heating a space.
Find out what we thought about it by listening to the stream above.
Thanks to Dyson for providing the fan and also for offering to show us all they have to offer!!
A couple of news stories this morning caught the public’s attention. The first related to Samsung TV’s and privacy concerns. The second told the story of a South Korean woman having her hair devoured by a robot vacuum cleaner.
I chat to Mark Murphy at BBC Radio Suffolk to find out more.
This week I was delighted to be able to test the Nissan Leaf Tekna. This is a very nice pure electric hatchback and I have really enjoyed driving it.
Listen to the stream above and find out what I thought about it, we also talked at length about the practicalities of driving an electric car especially with the sub hundred mile ranges many EV drivers experience at the moment.
Massive thanks to Nissan Press Office for providing the vehicle and the their support.
When thinking about electric cars, most people conjure up images of 60 sci-fi movies with passengers sitting in a bubble of glass on empty elevated roads. This is very far from the reality of 21st century electric vehicles, which are very similar in look to their petrol drinking cousins and literally bursting at the seams with technology.
Over the past months, I have been given the amazing opportunity to test five of these vehicles, from the quirky two seater Renault Twizy to the awesome BMW i8. However nothing was going to prepare me for the most recent vehicle, designed and built by a Silcon Valley based company headed up by Elon Musk who spends the other half of his day heading up SpaceX, the private space rocket business.
