Fuck EVs frankly.
A terrified electric car driver has revealed he was kidnapped by his runaway £30,000 MG ZS EV after the vehicle suffered a ‘catastrophic malfunction’ in a bizarre case which forced him to dodge red lights and roundabouts before calling police to ram it into their van.
Brian Morrison, 53, claims he was heading home from work at around 10pm on Sunday when his new Chinese-made fully electric car began driving itself at 30mph.
Unable to use the brakes, the Glaswegian – who runs his own social enterprise – called police who stopped the vehicle by allowing it to slowly crash into their van.
I don’t know why the brakes didn’t work, but a manual ICE engine can be stalled. I’ve not had a runaway with an auto ICE but, I suspect that the brakes would still stop the vehicle and putting it into neutral would probably work.
Did I say that I will never buy and EV?
