Just finished my first week with the electric car and certainly enjoyed myself with it. I’ve been using it for the last seven days driving in and out of the University of Limerick, and it’s been spotted by many interested students. First morning I pulled up with it, immediately I was approached by somebody asking me about my experience so far with it. All I could tell him was that I could confirm the electric car could make it from one side of the city to the other!
I’ve been trying to see how far I can get on a single charge. Through very frugal driving and avoiding use of the heater I managed 90km on Monday, around Limerick and out and back from Killaloe. It may have gone further too but I didn’t want to push it too far while it was flashing empty.
Plugging it in at night is still something I’ve to learn to remember! Looking forward to the next three months with it.
