‘Some electric cars aren’t the best looking vehicles and a lot of them are little tiny, sort of runaround vehicles. But the Volt is a stunning-looking car and a practical car.

‘It’s also a really comfortable car to drive. People are generally surprised by the performance of the car and how quiet it is. It’s just such a different driving experience to pull away silently. I think people also expect an electric car to be quite slow, but it’s got very good acceleration – nearly instant torque means you can go from 0-62 mph in just nine seconds. Everyone that’s driven it has been really impressed!’
