Combe Pafford has an electric car!

It has a 400volt Lithium-ion 24Kwh battery which charges in 27 mins on a fast charge or 8 hours if charged from a normal household mains socket.
When slowing down, electrical energy is produced to help charge the battery.
The range on a full charge is between 80 and 100 miles.
