I WAS helping present at a business briefing recently. Organised by Concept Vehicle Leasing - winner of the Leasing Broker Federation’s Best Small Leasing Broker Customer Service Award - it was a relaxed evening in central London with 20 businesses present. Some had fleets of one car; others a fleet of 30 vans. So a varied audience. But the point [...]

SO I’m back on apps again. My apologies. But it’s a big part of life with an electric car. And the Volkswagen e-Golf is no different. I have a Pod Point 7kWh charger at home. It connects to the home wifi system and lets you know the cost of the electricity consumed by your electric car. Except at the time [...]

IF there’s one thing I’ve learnt about electric motoring with the VW e-Golf, it’s this. You need a smartphone. And a smartphone with enough memory to carry a plurality of apps. Particularly when you’re on the road. And you need to top up the battery. (The car’s, not the phone’s.) My wife Alison had an appointment at Brighton Marina. As [...]

HOW far can you go? What's the range? These are typical and expected reactions when people ask what do you drive - and the answer is an electric Golf. And the answer is - it depends. The official range on the NEDC cycle is 186 miles. VW quotes the usable range as 124. I work on a 130 miles rule [...]

Volkswagen Golf 1.0 TSI Bluemotion Match What is it? Diesel as a fuel has been in the news a lot over the last year, notably with Volkswagen and its major emissions issues. So how about a petrol Golf 1.0 TSI Bluemotion? With the German company re-focusing its efforts on greener power, could downsized petrol engines be a viable option? One of Volkswagen’s [...]

Volkswagen Sharan SEL 2.0-litre TDR SCR 184PS 6spd DSG IF a people carrier could be called ‘high-end’ then the latest incarnation of the Volkswagen Sharan is the executive’s best choice.
