Just about to press the button on one of these.

Mini Cuntryman PHEV.png


3 cylinder 140bhp turbo petrol on the front wheels and an 80bhp electric motor on the rear wheels. I really wanted to go full electric this time, but there's nothing on my company car level that would get me to London/Glasgow and part way back with out plugging it in. Hopefully, in the next 3 years there will be something cheaper with a real world 300 mile range.

I see posts from Zero bikes, they have some good looking machines, but they are still not giving enough miles per charge to make it worth looking at for fun. Not taking the cost of the thing into account though lol.....
