Wont be relevant for me for at least a few years. How practical are e-niros if you cant easily charge from home? I am on a hill with no drive so I would be dependant on public charge stations. Does the charge take long? Is this a viable situation?

Get the Zap Map app, then you can see what charging points there are in your area, either near home or near work or on route. How far is your daily commute, how often a week would you need to charge? The ideals are either a 7kw charger you can plug into in a car park near work or a rapid 50kw upwards on route where you can charge in 30-40 minutes. Our local P&R has free chargers, another way of doing it. Or do you have a relative near by and be able to charge at their house?

There are many ways workarounds to make this do-able. All more expensive than home charging but still cheaper than petrol.
