James Allen test drives the Mitsubishi i-MiEV (video)

James drops out of the F1 circus to try a pure-electric road car

TheChargingPoint.com recently asked Mitsubishi to lend our columnist James Allen an i-MiEV pure-electric car for a week, and we took the opportunity to film his thoughts at the end of the loan.

James is more used to 750bhp petrol-powered monsters in his role as BBC Radio 5 Live F1 commentator, and has little experience of what it's like to live with a modern electric vehicle (EV). 

So how will he get on in a car without a traditional internal combustion engine? Will he suffer from range anxiety, or be unimpressed with the performance? Find out in the video below.

Look out for more videos with James as he gets to grips with electric cars.
