Hello, we are long time lurkers of this forum particularly at new quarter time! We have happily been in out first motability car for the past 4 years its a BMW series 2 Gran tourer xdrive, and we love it!
our first car had issues and they replaced with a new one at 1 year old and started our leace again so our 3 years were up in january we had everything crossed the gran tourer might re appear on the scheme but no luck! (Anyone know why this left the scheme never to return?)
we are now in a 2 year extention, now we have 3 boys and an autism assistance dog!! And we just have not found a suitable car at all with 7 seats so we were looking at smaller Cars losing the 7 seats we did not use them that often and the boot is now the dogs palace! When travelling!!.
But now my husbands head has been turned by the id4 we think electric is the way the world will go, but we live in a house behind a house with no driveway or designated street parking (we do have a disabled spot in car park but anyone can use it) we have been told a home charge is a no go.
But after a lot of research and knowing our mileage (around 140 a week or less) we believe we can charge while we are out been disabled and when the boys are in school we have time and we think 30 mins to an hour a few times a week would work, bad weather we read a book while waiting, we can do the shopping, go for a walk in the park or round the town all while charging for free (we checked the points) if we need a faster charge we can pay instead we feel we can fit this into our lives and save money on fuel costs which is a huge bonus!
Are we stupid to think this is worth a try? Of course we can not afford the current AP prices for the id4 we are looking new quarter, but would love some other people opinions of this or the advice of others in this charging situation!
Thank you all so much in advance!
