Bored!! Going Live While Charging an EV [with Partha Srinivasan]

Things got a bit silly when I went InstaLive yesterday

After recording the drive section of my review of the all-electric Peugeot E-208, I had obviously depleted the mileage range. I decided to give it a full charge. That meant sitting in the Morrison’s car park at a Genie Point charger for an hour. So I went live online. And ended up with a guest – my good buddy Partha in India.

Citroen Ami Review

Is this a 21st century Citroen 2CV, is it genius, is it even a car?

The Citroen Ami is like no other car. And that’s partly because it isn’t quite a car. Technically it’s a Quadricycle – a four-wheeled vehicle with limitations on performance (it can’t exceed 28mph) and weight (it must be well under 500kg). In many European countries these can be driven without a driving licence; in France from just 14-years old. In the UK you need a scooter licence at minimum – so you’ve got to have passed your compulsory basic training.

2021 Jaguar F-Pace SVR Review

Make the most of this beast of an SUV while you still can!

Less than four seconds, 3.8 to be exact. That’s how quickly you’ll reach 60mph having started from rest in a Jaguar F-Pace SVR. Your jaw will have dropped in shock, you’ll forget to breath, your neck will be pinned against the headrest and a your ears will be pummelled by savage guttural roar. Meanwhile your partner will be berating you to slow down, the children will be whooping and laughing in the back, and the wide-eyed dog will be slammed into the back window confused as to how that tree he just had his eye on, shrank so quickly.

McLaren 620R Review

About as hardcore as a road car can get, superb at the right place and time

If you’ve only just managed to get your head around McLaren’s unique model range structure, go full face-palm now, because the arrival of recent new offerings from the supercar maker signal that’s all about to change.

2021 Citroen C4 and e-C4 Review

Best of all worlds for the family in a choice of ICE or EV

The all-new Citroen C4 is a little perplexing  at first acquaintance. With styling inspired by the classic Citroen GS, it’s a kinda crossover yet is as much a rival for a Toyota Corolla or Ford Focus as it is for C-HR and Kuga. Citroen give you one car where others may offer two – including within its own family group as this shares its platform with the Peugeot 208 and 2008.
