Have a look at the hybrid Volvo’s. Good if your mainly on short journeys.

The wife just got an XC90 T8, 0-60 in 5.5, yes it uses petrol, but far less than the 2.0 a4 it replaced, and its quicker, bigger, comfier.

I tried to buy a V90 T8, but the Volvo dealership wouldn't allow me to have a test drive so I went and bought a C55 instead.

Those of you familiar with my history may remember that I have always promoted average torque in the rev band you drive through the gears as more relevant to performance than peak BHP at the end of it - and even based the tuning of the winning racing motorcycle engines I built back in the '70's and early '80's on it (and of course our recent oversized engine conversions).

I find it ironic now that after battling just about everybody over this scientific principle for decades I am finally reading about how the low speed torque from these electric vehicles is transforming their peoples understanding of what creates performance.

Strange also how Mr Porsche first built a car with an electric motor in each wheel (how advanced was he?).

Even on Top Gear this week they found that modest electric family vehicles could outperform more power examples round a twisty road circuit while the Tesla 3 was fantastic.

But the range and access to fast charging points is bound to delay full electric potential whereas hybrids conveniently overcome that handicap.

But I also fully accept that drivers want noise and surging power for which hybrids seems to be the perfect answer.

After all in the South East, London and big cities you can only drive as fast as the other traffic or speed limits allow and these are the areas where pollution is the problem.

IF the government made an early ruling that hybrids can drive into these anti-pollution zones on pure electric power (with some kind of monitoring system and massive fines for non compliance) then drivers could pick cars to "save the planet" and at the same time enjoy the traditional experience of an engine revving out on full power on their days off - a perfect scenario.

So - IMHO - Electric cars - "great potential", full electric "too soon yet" , full ICE "too late for the planet" but hybrids "the perfect answer" as long as legislation supports them.
