Some of that is in my signature, but I've added my location... because I agree that is useful information for forum readers.
I'm a Business/Systems Analyst (translation I work on building and maintaining very large computer systems),
I live a fairly sustainable lifestyle (chickens, veggies, fruit and nut trees in the garden, often ride a bicycle to work etc.)
In my case, I've wanted an electric vehicle for a long time. This desire was compounded, because I was finding it more and more difficult to fold myself into my hot hatch (Barina GSi/Open Corsa B AKA Opel Vita Sportz).
I have heard tales of joy, from electric RAV owners in the USA, so you can imagine my delight when I found the PHEV!
