Episode 5: Long journeys in an electric car

In this penultimate episode Maddie attempts her first long journey in her electric car.

This is the fifth and penultimate episode of Fully Charged Show’s 6 part series “Maddie Goes Electric” – a beginner’s guide to electric cars.

In this episode Maddie and Greg attempt the first of their ambitious, long journeys in an electric car (‘Robert’ their newly leased Kia e-Niro), have mixed results with their first ever attempt to rapid charge an electric vehicle, explain the rules of ‘Horse!’ and even find free electric car chargers in Otley before heading home the following day!

Before they set off, Maddie asks Melanie Shufflebotham from Zap Map for help and advice :

  • Are we going to make it?!
  • Where can we find electric car rapid chargers on the way?
  • How quickly can we fill up the battery at a rapid charger?
  • How do I create a route plan on Zap Map?

Many of our viewers already ‘drive electric’, power their homes with clean energy etc. and many are looking to ‘go electric’.

But if like our presenter Maddie Moate (science communicator & BAFTA-winning presenter) you’re interested in electric cars, but don’t know where to start, this is the series for you!

And if you already know everything there is to know about electric vehicles, then please share this beginner’s guide to electric cars with your friends and family.
