Can you drive long distances in an electric car?

As electric cars become more common on the roads, it’s widely accepted that they are suitable for shorter journeys, but what about driving longer distances?

In this video we join David, a Motability Scheme specialist from Nissan Liverpool as he takes the Nissan Leaf on a longer journey, from Liverpool to Holyhead, to dispel some of the myths surrounding range anxiety.

The route takes in motorway driving, as well as some of roads winding up through the mountains in Snowdonia. David gives hints and tips along the way on how to make the most of the battery range as well as finding and using a public charge point.
