I wanted to say one more thing about our final right-hand-drive test drive the British are a very inviting and open people. Electric mobility is welcome and there are many possibilities for re-charging electric vehicles. The first day we drove around 230 kilometers along country roads and hilly terrain. From the Millbrook Testcenter we headed south over Buckingham to Oxford and then took a lunch break. We treated ourselves to some fish ‘n chips and the Ampera to some AC in the Worcester Street Car Park. After a short stop at the University of Oxford we continued driving to the north-west over Farmoor, Burford and Broadway all the way to Ludlow. We escaped the typical British weather by getting cosy in front of the fireplace in our little hotel while we evaluated our day’s results. During this the Ampera was outside, plugged in to the grid.
The next day we threw ourselves into Birmingham city traffic and at the latest then came to appreciate the roundabouts. The many roundabouts keep traffic flowing – no traffic jams at traffic lights. Our electric car also got treated to some amps at a public charging station in Birmingham. On the way back to Millbrook we passed the Leamington Spa on the motorway and we were finally „amused“. For one thing about the excellent condition of our series-production car, and for another about the UK’s exemplary charging infrastructure, which makes electric mobility even more sensible and fun.
