Mum amazed by huge saving she can make by driving electric car on school run
A mum-of-two with no clue about electric cars was won over after taking one for a test drive – and finding out how cheap they are to run.
Blogger Vicki Psarias was left shocked after taking the new MG ZS EV family crossover for a spin and declared: “I love this car – I just want this car!”
Our ‘Electric Sceptic’ Vicki – famous for her blog Honest Mum and book Mumboss – was blown away after learning how economical the car is.
Speaking in the above video, she says: “It’s 163miles that you get when you fill up. Today we’ve been on motorways, dual carriageways…we’ve done a lot of driving.”
She then checks how much her drive has cost – and is left bemused by the answer. “5.8p per mile?!” she questions. “It would only cost me, when it comes to school runs, 69p!”

The family-friendly MG ZS EV is available from £22,495* and is billed as the car for those who ‘want all of the advantages of a zero emissions vehicle without compromising on practicality or style’.
It’s powered by a 44.5kWh, water-cooled lithium-ion battery, and returns such great value thanks to its 163mile range per single charge.
Vicki also addresses one of the biggest myths about electric cars during her test drive: that you can’t take them through car washes…by doing just that.
On returning the MG ZS EV, she says she has completely fallen for it, adding “I’ve absolutely loved test driving this car today – I want it!”
