Sorry chaps, but I'm sticking to what I know.
The ones that drop to around 120 mile range in the winter are the old model with smaller battery, as far as I know, it's no longer available new, so only 2nd hand are for sale, which start around £21,000 for the top spec.

The £30,000+ are the new long range models, which are supposed to be capable of something like 260 miles, but obviously less in winter. Even then, there are companies out there doing deals, I've seen them advertised for just under £30,000 for the top model, with the base model somewhere around £26,000.

I had been planning on getting the HS PHEV to replace the ZT, but for me the performance while towing wasn't acceptable, from various user reviews it only had a range of about 130 miles while towing, which would mean at least 2 stops, but more likely 3, for our journeys for holidays, which I don't want.

That's fair enough, albeit to buy a brand new 75 in today's money would probably be similar to the EV.
