Hi guys, I’m doing the rounds of the showrooms nearby as there about seven in all.
The three below, AUDI, Mazda, and Volkswagen are all within 100 metres of each other, thus why this was my first stop. I had tried soon after lockdown ended in England but with the lack of cars in showrooms I postponed until now.
All models have common features: one gear, auto sensors know when you sit in the car, and all are fully Electric using lithium-ion.

The main difference over the conventional internal combustion engine is that most electric motors deliver a surprisingly quick acceleration. That’s because an electric motor generates 100 percent of its available torque instantly.
