These are great anecdotes! Pity might get lost in this big salad ... but so is the nature of the "pub" :-)

Pity LR did not follow up on the big Diesels, this had made the japs a winner option in key markets ... the 1HZ engine is as sweet as it comes, and a wonderful, simple, rugged powerplant, yet smooth and pleasant to drive. A nothing sophisticated ... just well made.

or not need a fuel pump!

so what is the towing capacity off an electric 4wd, 3500kg is the base limit , my shack is 300km return , sorry not really an option is it .

Nope, you can't tow behind a Tesla worth a damn. But you can't do 200mph in a Range Rover either. I suspect there will be electric tow cars one day, but that's not a niche they're pursuing yet. The best towing capacity for an EV so far appears to be the Polestar2 (volvo offshoot) at 1500kg.
You can do a 300km round trip though, should you be traveling light :)

Not when towing though I bet....

I actually followed a Polestar2 the other day and wondered what the hell it was. Figured it was an EV due to the lack of tailpipes poking out the back but hadn't a clue what it was. So memorised the registration number and looked it up on the DVLA site as soon as I got home. Not a bad looking vehicle actually.

Oooff, I hope that big glass roof has a shade you can pull over it, otherwise you would cook in this country.

i just went and retrieved two p38s one complete the other parts 400km trip one tank of fuel in the evening so lights on . how would that go in electric land ?
i looked at the vehicles that Richard put a link to , all the ones that had towing capacity had fuel pumps so not really electric, but i wonder if their would be access to the fuel pump through the floor?
