Well said. This would’ve been a cool car — last century. #Toyota would’ve been better served if they’d ditched the gas tank, transmission, and engine, then quadrupled the battery.

Audi has updated its e-tron, giving it a new name: Q8 e-tron, bigger battery option of 106kWh and increased WLTP range of 343 miles. DC rapid charging speeds also raised to 170kW for the top model. Prices TBA.

2 takeaways are:
1)If you want the best value charging in UK go to #Scotland  where you can still DC charge at 50kW (time 2admire the scenery) at 30p per kWH
2)If you live in Scotland & don’t drive an EV you are not canny!
