3. EV Tip: Zap Maps
“My top tip when planning an EV journey is to take advice from other EV drivers who have been there before,” says Melanie Shufflebotham.
“Most EV brands have a forum where you can seek advice from drivers of the same car, such as the Nissan Leaf Owners forum, the Kia e-Niro Owners forum and many more.”
She continues: “Also, when you are planning your journey, make sure you check out any comments from Zap-Map users for valuable info. On Zap-Map you can check out the chat channel on individual charge points, and you will see feedback on charge experience and other info, such as whether there is a coffee shop nearby – plus pictures to help you locate the charger.
“And don’t forget to check-in on Zap-Map when you charge to help others!”
4. EV Review: Car Wow
The Porsche Taycan is a seriously fast, seriously luxurious four-seater sports car that’s packed with tech, comfy to drive and better than a Tesla Model S in the corners. Is the Porsche Taycan a good car?

Blog Version Extra:
Why Electric Vehicles Are Becoming More Popular In Rural Areas. For a long time, there's been a stereotype that's portrayed electric vehicles as crippled woke vehicles only wealthy urbanites can afford to drive (or indeed can actually make use of because of very limited range). But as new data shows this week, there's more growth in electric vehicle sales in some rural areas than in major cities.
Until next time. Have a fantastic week!
