This individual isn't engaged in an electric car until it can haul anything unreasonably enormous over many tens of miles. The second was, "Maybe electric vehicles aren't for you right now if you have to haul unwieldy heavy stuff constantly," and the first was, "Dave, mate, this is a Fiat 500." Obtain a diesel. You'll have a better time. Additionally, it will be a little bit calmer while you are away.

Isn't it wonderful to reside in a society that allows us to be equipped with the vehicles that best suit our needs for the 95% of our excursions that take place within ten minutes of home and rarely cover more than twenty miles in a single trip? When traveling, how many of us are in our automobiles at once—maybe one or two? Then, when we require them, we can rent the more significant cars like the newly opened local municipal library across the street from my house.

Since I don't need anything hanging in the garage all year, like a cleaning solution or a tile cutter, it's going to take a while before we reach that point on our highways. After all, an Englishman's car is his fortress. Fortunately, BMW's iX is a pleasant all-arounder for Dave and many others who tow impractically enormous objects over improbable distances.

A fantastic 2,500 kg of applied brakes trailer may be pulled by any BMW iX model, which is a commendable feat. Because of this, we are free to select any vehicle from the lineup; we'll pass on the 348-mile WLTP range of the £111,905 M-badged edition of the car to save about £34k and go for the £77,305 base xDrive40 model. Because even if you disagree with Dave, 247 miles is still a reasonable distance, and the 105-kWh battery under all that BMW would let you stay there for months even on fast charging.

However, the BMW is a remarkably wealthy vehicle with a unique design that will have people enquiring about it. It is covered in fabulous controls that will give you the impression that you're in a special episode of the Crystal Maze, and the middle game's capacitive buttons, which are mysteriously concealed in the timber, will give you the impression that you're on Star Trek. There is currently bridging television that we never knew we wanted to watch.

The idea that when you're pulling somebody and need to recharge up on the way toward where you're going, you're inevitably going to need to disconnect your priceless companion to get close to the socket hasn't been handled by anyone in the electric car arena, it must be said. Nightmare. It could be preferable to buy the tent, purchase the Fiat 500, and check into a motel.
