In late March, the Tata Indica Vista EV officially started rolling down the assembly lines in the UK. Before that, Michael and Angela Boxwell, owners of a MG ZS, Nissan Cube and a Reva G-Wiz electric car and members of the UK's CABLED trial, headed off to Tata's factory in Coventry to grab a pre-production Indica Vista EV. Angela Boxwell says that the electrified Tata will replace the MG ZS and she, along with her husband, will share their Indica Vista experiences with the entire world via the Owning an Electric Car blog.
The Boxwells are a family of four whose day-to-day routine includes several short journeys. On average, the Boxwells rack up only 22 miles of driving per day and plan to put the electrified Tata to the test by using it for all of their daily journeys for an entire year, only reverting to the gasoline-fueled Nissan Cube for family vacations.
So far, the Boxwells have posted a review of their first week behind the wheel of the electrified Vista, which you can read by clicking here. Though impressed with the vehicle, the couple plans to conduct some tests to see if the Indica Vista lives up to its claimed 110 miles of range.
