I want to go full electric next year and the Ioniq and Kona boots are too small for what I need so Iím looking at MG again as I know the ZS boot is the same size as the battery pack is underneath. However, our house is over 100 years old so anticipating similar problems to yourself. I think ours was re wired about 50 years ago but I still have doubts.

Yeah even though we haven't used it all that much with the pandemic restrictions I love the quiet ride of these BEV's, Very relaxing.


I think our house wiring was replaced some time in the 1960's judging by the stuff we found under the floorboards, An empty players number 6 cigarette packet was in there as well as off cuts of wiring.




We had the DNO do a safety check on the house electrics which they passed OK.


The OLEV people don't seem to like old style electrics even though the DNO passed ours as safe
