Sub £7,000 electric car leads to an economical future in Derby

December 18th, 2013 Comments Off § permalink

who want to help the environment can buy an car in Derby for just £6,999. Severn tests what it like to go green on the road.

FOR electric cars were slow and often looked the back end of a bus.

This is no the case.

For £6,999, you can walk Motorpoint, off Pentagon Island, and away with a four-door that looks like any car. It will ferry you and others in comfort to your and in plenty of time, thanks to the sat-nav system.

And that according to Renault, can be anything up to 115 from your front

So could this be the turning for electric cars in Derby?

To that question let us look at In September, the top selling car across the of the country was the electric Tesla S.

The following month, the Nissan another electric car, top. This is no fluke.

In there has been a sustained to make electric cars appealing to consumers. If you buy an electric car you get: Zero VAT and sales free access to toll use of bus lanes, free parking, charging and a low annual road

Car charging is also less of a with a good network electric vehicle car parks in the of Oslo.

There has also a cultural shift with being far more likely to be to name and recognise electric on the market.

Contrast that the UK and it makes bleak reading. In 403,136 new cars were In the first nine months of year, just 2,681 vehicles were registered.

is not just one type of electric That is every single

So what is the problem?

On a test drive in the new Renault with Steve Wright, Motorpoint Derby, it is difficult to see why is so low. It is not a pokey city car zero boot space and that make you think 20 are going to suddenly jump

Rather it is a premium four-door which slips nicely in the company s venerable Laguna

Everything appears normal. But the key and nothing happens. Is it on? I ask with than a hint of disbelief in my

There is no noise. Not a whisper. A scenario for a driver used to an 2000 Citroen Saxo.

No, it s on. is all the noise. When you put your down there is a bit of a whine but is it, Steve says.

A glance at the pedals reveals there are two where the normal three be; this is an automatic.

Pulling out of the lack of noise is disconcerting to with but a pleasant side is that it allows for a conversation to place at a normal volume.

And as I the car on a spin around Derby, explained how that price is so He said: Most people won t buy a electric car over fears the battery life. The battery are generally worth more the actual car, which means the car becomes almost once the cells are exhausted.

Renault s ingenious battery policy means that who buy the Fluence are insuring the battery of the vehicle, as Renault will replace or repair the battery the rental policy remains in

Unfortunately, most people are of this policy thus far as a consequence, sales have low and prices from suppliers been impacted.

This has allowed Motorpoint to step-in and buy the in bulk and pass on savings to the

Steve said: We ve sold a number of Fluences, mostly at our branch, because of demand the London market.

We ve got a reasonable still in stock with an to buy more based on demand.

The other major difficulty people have with vehicles is the range. But again is something that Steve not think is as much of an issue as it has previously.

He said: The range of car is around 60 miles under driving conditions which, you think of what people on a commute to work, is far less most people will

If you live just outside and drive in every day it really isn t far. Most of the time is just sitting in traffic.

So you are at a lot less than a 60-mile trip.

How I see it though is that families have two cars. If you at the kind of people that are to buy this type of car it makes

You can have a normal petrol car if you to make long drives and the Fluence for the school run.

As we with the test drive, I in the interior. It is well appointed, one of the cars I have had the chance to sit in.

The is smooth, the cabin airy and is never the feeling that you are to race to keep up with

Steve said: The car pulls like a petrol. You are always up the speed of the rest of the traffic.

As we get on to the ring road and I put my foot there is the unmistakable whine as the spins up and the car s speedometer pushes

But the most over-riding feeling you step out of the car? That it isn t any than driving any other and that this is the key.

are creatures of habit, we hate People kicked against phones for an age. Then, everyone had a Nokia 3310 you needed to charge once a the idea you would have to it in every night seemed madness.

Now a good proportion of go home, stick their on charge and set their alarm to them up in the morning.

And that is exactly what happen with electric

Each Fluence comes a charger which plugs the mains of the house.

Steve You go home and plug it in. From to full it takes about hours. People are used to to the petrol station and filling up.

But cannot continue. By some we have gone past the of peak oil and if you think the price of is bad now, just wait barrels of crude go through the as Brazil, India and China pushing through with own industrialisation.

The more electric there are, the less is being pumped into the Steve said: People buy cars for all kinds of reasons and one of is the fact that they are than the petrol equivalents.

So you are looking at in the Renault Fluence is the today – and at a price that is so low you be mad not to take it for a test drive and see if you can the difference.
