Hybrid v Electric????

Hi Sean,

Probably hybrid for now, or at least for the next couple of years. Something such as a new-shape Toyota Prius gives you a pretty painless entry to the electric motoring world and it'll average 60mpg easily. Electric cars, although improving fast, still need a bit of dedication and a specific mindset to get the best from them. Or you could go half-house and get a plugin hybrid. BMW's 330e is excellent, as is the Volkswagen Golf GTE.
