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

Blessed are the tea makers.
