    The Wanderer Returns

    OK so it's been five months since I was last here, having pensioned off my C class after 10 years of ownership. I defected to a Kia E-Niro having originally been considering a Hybrid, my research indicated that a full BEV would make more sense. I like many had thought that range was an issue...
