As the Government brings forward the date when it expects the sale of petrol and diesel cars to be banned to 2032, we find out what people need to know when shopping for second-hand Electric Cars. Shari Vahl speaks to dealers and experts from WhatCar Magazine about battery life, charging points and range anxiety.
