Free Electric Charging Notice Card

April 24, 2015 - Activities, Electric Cars, Freebies

One of the most rewarding things about being an electric vehicle owner is being part of a group of drivers that look out for each other. But we have all arrived at an electric charging point before, to find a fully charged electric vehicle with no sign of the driver or when they will be back.

This has inspired us to create a new charging point notice card. This exclusive free download allows you to inform other electric vehicle owners when you will be back and / or your contact details.

Download the PDF and follow the instructions to create your very own charging point notice card.

Range Anxiety“Well that’s another fine mess you’ve got us into ” – Range Anxiety in an Electric car !

As a retailer of new and used electric vehicles, I spend a fair bit of time following press on electric vehicles (EVs). I see stuff that’s pro-EV, anti-EV, and neutral. I see some good stuff, but a lot of poorly researched as well.

One thing that really bugs me is stories talking about the “huge disadvantage” EVs have in charging time and that “People don’t want to wait hours and hours for their cars to charge.”

Stories like that create what I call “range anxiety anxiety”. Range anxiety is an infrequent thing, but people unfamiliar with electric cars read articles hyping short range and long charge times and they develop anxiety that they’d have range anxiety if they owned an EV.
