I have a 240bhp fiesta, bollocks to getting a sensible car.

Not that I am bothered about the BHP of a car, but have you driven an electric car in Sport mode?  Anything but sensible, trust me..

I have a Cupra Born V2 (V1 is less specced). I used to have home charging, but now use a 50p KWH charger provided in allocated parking. Costs me £26 for around 220 miles.

Mine is through a lease, like Tusker. It costs me £360 a month for 8k miles per year and has everything included such as maintenance, servicing and insurance.

Do I love it no. Is it fast - yes. It's great on country roads, it's great around town.

I am a petrol head and prefer a stick and noise. I would love to get a 2nd car at somepoint. Will probably stay electric now as much cheaper to run.

Thanks Sippo. I really like the look of the Cupra Born. I didn't see it in the list of available cars sadly. Appreciate the info on the charging cost also.

Just a word of warning. My mi/kWh has dropped to 2.4 this week due to the weather. It's usually 4 mi/kWh. Batteries do not like the cold.
