Country Life  

Electrified cars can’t do the rough stuff, huh? They can’t cope with mud, rain, off-road and harsh environments? Not true. In fact, EV is actually perfectly suited to off-road driving - far better than a traditional combustion engine. Power is instant and digitally fine-tuned, you can’t drown an electric car in a ford, and there are ten times fewer moving parts to go wrong. The new Land Rover Defender  - king of off-road exploring - is getting a plug-in version, and most PHEV and BEV SUVs are just as capable as their petrol or diesel-powered counterparts. We're also excited are also a slew of electric pickups heading our way from the USA in the next two years that will cope with pretty much anything and will be the first to tell you about models from names like Ford, Bollinger and Rivian. Of course it isn't just SUVs and trucks that can cope with country life, the Mini Countryman hybrid and or the BMWs mini MPV the 225xe hybrid are also worth a look.
