Best Electric Cars For Adventure Lovers 2022

With better range, performance and eco credentials than ever, the latest electric vehicles are a great choice for roamers and seekers in search of a greener way to get from home to the hills…

The number of electric cars on UK roads is increasing all the time. You’ve probably noticed this fact, since the tell-tale green flash on number plates is an easy giveaway that instantly distinguishes a zero emissions EV (electric vehicle) from a standard petrol or diesel-powered car. As is the lack of a tailpipe, of course – though admittedly, that’s a little trickier to spot at a glance.

There are good reasons for the growth in popularity of EVs. First, the government is actively encouraging drivers to make the switch, as a key factor in achieving nationwide environmental and air quality targets. They’ll even give you a grant of up to £1,500 to help make the transition to an electric car a little more affordable, provided the list price is below £32k. Though that might seem a lot, it doesn’t get you all much in EV terms, since they are comparatively more expensive than conventionally powered alternatives at present. There’s no denying that EVs are a costly outlay.

On the other hand, consider the fact that driving a petrol or a diesel car is only going to get more expensive. Fuel prices continue to increase – particularly given the volatility of global crude oil prices – while more and more urban areas are introducing low emissions zones that will charge drivers to use standard cars inside these designated zones.

The high initial purchase price of electric cars is further offset by the lower running costs – and not just in terms of making city driving cheaper or seeing your fuel bills vanish. Mechanically, there is also considerably less wear and tear on the car itself, meaning you’ll probably see a reduction in servicing and maintenance costs. EVs are also exempt from road tax. In fact, recent studies have shown overall running costs to be as much as 60% less for electric cars compared to an equivalent petrol vehicle.

Ultimately, you won’t have a choice anyway, at least if you want to buy a new car, since the government plans to ban the sale of new petrol and diesel-engined private vehicles by 2030. Whether you agree or disagree with this decision, it’s impossible to dispute the fact that EVs are cleaner than combustion engines in emissions terms, which has undoubted benefits in terms of reducing greenhouse gas emissions and enhancing air quality.

How eco-friendly they are overall is a little more complex, since the overall environmental credentials of an EV depend on numerous factors – its lifespan, production costs and of course, the source of the electricity used to charge it. But it is likely that EVs will only get greener as the government moves from nuclear power and fossil fuels towards renewables like solar, wind and hydro power.

What To Consider When Looking To Buy An EV

The number of high-quality electric cars on the market is increasing all the time, with most manufacturers committing to introducing a full range of EVs, including everything from city runabouts to full-size SUVs. As battery and motor technology has improved alongside the introduction of new purpose-built electric platforms for new models, there are also fewer compromises to make than ever in terms of range, performance, ride quality and cabin or boot space.

The added weight of the batteries in an electric car means they tend to be heavier than petrol and diesel vehicles, which means they can feel less nimble on twisty roads. On the other hand, they are much quieter, allowing you to enjoy more of the sights and sounds of nature as you drive through the countryside. And it doesn’t have to be a sedate experience either – the instant torque of an electric motor means some EVs have impressive 0-60mph figures, leaving many performance cars standing.

“Electric cars are becoming a practical proposition for a greater number of people.”

These qualities make them vastly more attractive for adventure lovers, who are generally looking for capable and comfortable cruisers with plenty of boot space to carry camping and hiking kit – and possibly racks for mountain bikes or kayaks too. Real world range is also important, since getting to far-flung parts of the UK, whether the Cornish coast, Snowdonia, the English Lakes or the Scottish Highlands, means having a car that won’t run out of juice halfway there.

Ideally, of course, you’ll also need somewhere to plug it in at your destination or at least somewhere convenient en route so you can ensure you’ll get home again. EV-charging infrastructure in the UK is gradually improving. This, more than any other obstacle, is now starting to make electric cars a more practical proposition for a greater number of people, regardless of where they live. Though this is arguably the area that continues to lag behind compared to other technological developments in EVs, the network of fast and rapid chargers at homes and workplaces is slowly getting larger and more widespread.

All these factors make it easier than ever to make the swap to electric. But with so many different models on the market, how do you choose the right vehicle for you? Well, we’ve done the legwork for you, highlighting the best adventure-ready EVs out there, whatever your budget.

Best Electric Cars For Adventure Lovers 2022

This selection includes small, city car-sized EVs that will work for weekend getaways, as well as practical and high-riding SUVs to take the family off on outdoor adventures. And of course, we’ve also included a couple of high-performance prestige models as well as those with capable 4×4 and off-road performance, enabling you to really get off the beaten track.

  • Hyundai Ioniq 5
  • Kia EV6
  • Vauxhall Corsa-e
  • Skoda Enyaq
  • Tesla Model Y
  • Jaguar I-Pace
  • MG ZS EV
  • Volkswagen ID.3
  • Mercedes EQS
  • Rivian R1T/R1S

Hyundai Ioniq 5

Price: £37,000
More info: hyundai.co.uk

With its striking retro-futurist looks, Hyundai’s Ioniq 5 is a little like something out of Blade Runner. But as well as carrying plenty of curb appeal, it’s a practical family-sized hatchback/crossover SUV with impressive EV performance in terms of both range and high-speed charging capability. Inside, it feels modern, spacious and well-equipped, with a superb infotainment system and plenty of kit – even in standard spec. You can even link it your phone via Hyundai’s Bluelink app, enabling you to check the car’s current range and charging status, and remotely activate its heating and ventilation systems. So, if you’re coming down off the frozen hills, you can come back to a frost-free windscreen, a warm seat and a toasty steering wheel. Nice.

When it comes to performance, two battery options are currently available with three power outputs: a 58kWh battery paired with a single 168bhp rear-wheel drive motor, delivering a 0-62mph time of 8.5 seconds and a range of 238 miles. The 214bhp mid-spec version offers the best range, with a 73kWh battery increasing the total distance on a single charge to 280 miles. For the sake of comparison, that’s theoretically enough juice to get you from London to Llanberis in a single run. However, real world tests seem to suggest that 220-250 miles is a more realistic figure. The top-spec variant uses the same battery, but adds a second front wheel-drive motor, giving a total of 301bhp. Overall range then falls slightly to 267 miles, although performance is much improved (0-62mph in 5.2 seconds). The AWD dual motor configuration also makes the vehicle feel far more planted on the twisty single-track roads and lanes that you might need to navigate in places like the Scottish Highlands or Snowdonia.

Other features further add to its appeal for adventure seekers. Firstly, it’s a very comfortable cruiser, being pleasant to drive and very roomy too, offering ample boot and passenger space for kit and companions. It’s a big old beast (similar in size to large SUVs like the Audi Q5), so even if your hillwalking mates are six-footers, you won’t feel cramped en route to your weekend away.

All in all, this is one of the most accomplished EVs currently on the market, and one that trades punches with many premium offerings, while undercutting them on price. The Ioniq 5 currently starts from £37,000.

Kia EV6

Price: Starting from £41,000
More info: kia.com

Another practical large hatchback/crossover SUV, Kia’s EV6 shares many similarities with the Hyundai Ioniq 5, albeit in a slightly more understated package. It doesn’t have quite the same high-riding stance as the Ioniq, which may make it marginally less comfortable over country roads, but conversely improves the overall handling and responsiveness. So, it’s arguably more of a driver’s car than its Hyundai stablemate.

There are other advantages in terms of range, charging speed and performance too. In, fact, Kia claims the EV6 can go further than the Ioniq 5 and charge faster than a Tesla, while the forthcoming top-spec model will even outgun a Porsche Taycan 4S (arguably the leading electric supercar right now). Sounds impressive – but in reality, there aren’t currently too many public chargers that will support its ultra-rapid 250kW capability (which admittedly boasts a blisteringly quick top up rate, surging from 10% to 80% in under 20 minutes). Similarly, though the EV6 RWD can officially do up to 328 miles on a full charge, various car test sites have shown that 260-280 miles is more realistic. And currently, the quickest EV6 is the 321bhp AWD version, which will do 0-62mph in about 5 seconds. The Porsche and Tesla-rivalling 577bhp GT version is coming later in 2022 and has a claimed 0-62mph figure of 3.5sec. That’s undeniably quick.

Still, even if its attention-grabbing stats do seem to be slightly inflated, the EV6 stacks up well compared to its competitors, with a modern and upmarket cabin that includes a pair of curved 12.3-inch instrument and infotainment screens. It has 490 litres of boot space, with 60/40 split folding rear seats and a nifty hatch in the middle rear seatback that allows you to carry long, thin items (like skis) and still fit two people in the back. Space for all passengers is very good, ensuring exceptional comfort even on longer runs. And like many Kia models, the EV6 is a well-equipped car, especially in GT-Line and GT-Line S trims. Prices start from £41,000.

Vauxhall Corsa-e

Price: Starting from £21,485,
More info: vauxhall.co.uk

If your vehicle budget doesn’t stretch to a large crossover or full-size SUV, why not look at one of the most popular and practical hatchbacks out there – the classic Corsa – in its latest electric guise? With a longer wheelbase than the petrol-powered Corsa (largely to accommodate its 50kwh battery), it has decent cabin space for a small car, with competitive boot space too. The interior layout is functional and familiar, with a pretty good level of equipment offered as standard, plus the options to add plenty of extras by moving up the spec and trim levels.

According to the manufacturer’s figures, the Corsa-e can go 209 miles between recharges. While than might be pushing it a bit, you can still expect a real-world range of around 160 miles, which puts it comfortably in the middle of the pack when it comes to small EVs. When it comes to charging speeds, the Corsa-e supports rapid 100kW charging (provided you can find a suitably rapid charging point) that will top the battery up from 0 to 80% in just 30 minutes. From a home wallbox (which Vauxhall supplies and fits for you as part of the asking price), a full top-up takes seven and a half hours – so, plug it in overnight and expect maximum range the next morning. You can charge it from a domestic three-pin socket too, though the cable costs extra, and it takes more than 24 hours to do so.

The 136bhp motor makes it feel reasonably nippy – it’ll go from 0-60 in just under 8 seconds. OM contributor James Forrest recently tested a Corsa-e on ‘safar-e’ in the Lake District and was impressed. It took him along multiple mountain roads in one charge and alleviated his fears about running out of juice. “Initially, I thought charging points might be few and far between in such a rural area but there were easily enough available to find in the app on my phone”, he said. All in all, it’s a practical compact hatchback that seems well suited for weekday to weekend use, from commuting to mini adventures.

Prices for the Vauxhall Corsa-e start at £21,485, which also enables buyers to take advantage of the Government’s £1,500 Plug-In Car Grant.

Skoda Enyaq

Price: Starting from £34,850
More info: skoda-auto.com

Since being bought out by the VW Group back in 1994, Skoda has gradually shrugged off its status as the butt of many bad car jokes to forge a well-deserved reputation for building practical, well-equipped and reliable vehicles. The Enyaq EV is the latest example of that: a large SUV with plenty of space and a healthy battery range. Ideal for adventure lovers then.

It actually uses the same platform, batteries and electric motors as the VW ID.4 SUV. Ride and comfort levels are broadly similar too. The Enyaq comes in 60 and 80 rear-wheel drive configurations, with the 60 putting out 177bhp and the 80 delivering 201bhp. Other than those extra horses, performance differences aren’t dramatic, owing to the 80’s larger and heavier battery pack. However, the top-spec 4WD 80X has 261bhp, going from 0-62mph in 6.9 seconds.

The 80 can officially manage over 300 miles on a full charge, while the 60 has a respectable 256-mile official range. You’re unlikely to achieve that in real world driving, but you should still get well over 200 miles between top-ups. A 50kW standard charging speed is decent enough, though upgrading to a 100kW (60 model) or 125kW (80 and 80X models) charger might be worth doing, since it enables a 10% to 80% top-up charge in around half an hour. At home, a full overnight charge via the regular 7kW wall box takes around 9.5 hours for the 60 and roughly 13 hours for the 80/80X.

Standard kit is generous, the cabin is roomy and airy, seats are comfortable, and boot space is vast and practical, especially if you add the Transport Pack, which gives you a height-adjustable boot floor (we reckon this would even mean you could spend a cheeky night camping in the Enyaq if you had to). The Enyaq starts from £34,850, which seems extremely competitively priced for a large electric SUV.

Tesla Model Y

Price: Starting at £54,990
More info: teslo.com

You can’t do a round-up of electric adventure vehicles without including a car from perhaps the world’s best-known manufacturer of EVs: Tesla. And whatever you think of co-founder and CEO Elon Musk – frontier-pushing visionary or Twitter-baiting renegade – the latest Tesla to hit the UK market, the Model Y, is arguably the company’s best offering yet.

This is Tesla’s second SUV, a smaller and more practical option compared to the gigantic and somewhat unwieldy Model X, which works much better for the broad boulevards of North America than it does for the congested streets and narrow lanes of the UK. In fact, the Model Y shares more in common with the smaller, nimbler and hugely popular Model 3, since both cars possess similar styling and, it is claimed, use 95% of the same technology.

But as an adventure vehicle, the Model Y looks a more compelling proposition than the cheaper Model 3. First, it’s a ‘proper’ SUV, with a high-riding stance, a roomy cabin and a huge boot. This gives good cruising comfort, though ride quality and handling isn’t quite as assured.

It comes in two variants – performance and long-range models, both of which use Tesla’s dual motor four-wheel drive system. This delivers reliable traction and impressive performance (as quick as 3.7 seconds from 0-62mph). Claimed battery range is shorter than the Model 3 but still superior to most comparable EVs on the market, with figures of 298 for the Performance and 315 miles for the Long Range models respectively.

Of course, another primary reason that so many UK car buyers are turning to Tesla is because the company is streets ahead of most competitors when it comes to a nationwide charging infrastructure. Pull in to almost any motorway service station these days and you’ll see ranks of Tesla’s Supercharger stations. This is undeniably one of the biggest benefits of Tesla ownership, promising widely available, rapid, hassle-free juice.

Cabin space is good for all five passengers, and with up to 854 litres of luggage space in the boot plus 117 litres in the ‘frunk’ under the bonnet, there’s ample kit storage. Inside the Model Y is Tesla’s trademark minimalist interior, featuring a large 15.4-inch touchscreen on the dash.

The Model Y starts from £54,990, though the Performance model is noticeably pricier, starting from £60k plus.

Jaguar I-Pace

Price: £64,625
More info: jaguar.co.uk

In the absence of a fully electric Land Rover (the closest in the current range are plug-in hybrid Range Rovers, plus a Discovery Sport option and the new Defender PHEV), those looking for a full adventure-ready EV from the JLR stable will need to turn to the Jaguar I-Pace.

That’s no bad thing – this is currently one of the best luxury SUVs out there. It’s no slouch either. Every I-Pace has four-wheel drive courtesy of two electric motors, delivering 395bhp and going from 0-60mph in 4.5 seconds. When it comes to range, it’s one of the leading EVs on the market too. The 90kWh battery pack gives an official maximum range of 290 miles on a single charge – with most real-world tests hovering around 250 miles. This impressive performance sees off even Tesla’s Model S and Model X, being beaten only by the new king of electric SUV range: the much-heralded Ford Mustang Mach-E Extended Range (available to order form dealerships, but not yet to be seen on UK roads).

Recharging the I-Pace’s batteries from 0% to 80% with a ‘standard’ 11kW wall box (for example, if you plugged in overnight at home) takes nine hours. Find a 50kW public charger and you can reduce that time to 1 hour 25 minutes, while hitting upon a 100kW charger (still a relative rarity in the UK at the moment) further slashes re-juicing time to 40 minutes. The I-Pace doesn’t support the ultra-rapid 150kW+ capabilities of some of the very latest EVs, but then again, nor does the UK’s charging infrastructure, which is still to catch up in most regions.

Jaguar has plenty of heritage when it comes to building driver-focused sports cars and saloons, and happily the I-Pace feels pretty sprightly, fun and agile for an SUV, even on twisty roads. Like almost all SUVs, it does have a little body lean, but that’s almost a given due to its sizeable bulk and weight. And when it comes to off road performance, the I-Pace is probably the most capable EV around right now, with true 4WD and sophisticated HDC (hill descent control) borrowed from Land Rover, as well as an optional height-adjustable air suspension. Admittedly, even at full extension it’s not like being in a Discovery or a Rangie, but it retains an elevated SUV feel, with various camera gadgets available to improve all-round visibility. Passenger and boot space aren’t quite best-in-class but are still generous, with fold-flat rear seats that come in a 60/40 split as standard, or which can be upgraded to 40/20/40 for added flexibility.

Combining a prestige marque with a driver-focused experience, plenty of luxurious bells and whistles and surprising adventure-ready practicality, the I-Pace is one of our top picks when it comes to electric SUVs. It ain’t cheap, of course – the Jaguar I-Pace is priced from £64,625.

MG ZS EV

Price: £28,495
More info: mg.co.uk

This small fully-electric SUV from MG might seem a bit of an unusual pick, but it sneaks its way into our round-up as one of the most affordable EVs around right now. It’s considerably cheaper than comparable electric compact SUV rivals like the Hyundai Kona, Kia e-Niro and Peugeot e-2008. It even undercuts the pricing of popular electric city-focused hatchbacks like the Nissan Leaf and Renault Zoe.

So, where are the compromises? Not in performance. The ZS EV goes from 0-62mph in a respectable 8.4 seconds, while the instant torque you get from an electric motor means you’ll rarely lag behind other traffic on the road. Admittedly, handling, ride quality and cabin noise at speed are so-so, but no worse than many other cars in this class. Braking is a lot more predictable than many EVs too, where regenerative braking systems often make it tricky to judge how much pressure to apply in order to come to a sedate halt rather than a whiplash-inducing stop. The MG is a lot more intuitive, feeling much like a petrol-powered car.

Critically, range is good. The higher-powered 68kWh battery model offers an official range of 273 miles, while the entry-level 49kWh model manages 198 miles. Again, that’s comparable to most rivals in this class. Charging speeds don’t match those of premium EVs, but are hardly trickle-speed: the ZS EV offers charging speeds of up to 76kW from a public charger, going from zero to 80% battery capacity in a little under 45 minutes – even if you opt for the model with the bigger 68kWh battery. Home charging performance from a standard 7kW wall box takes between 7 and 10.5 hours from empty to full, again depending on which model you choose.

Inside, the ZS EV hardly feels like a budget car, with plenty of kit and a functional touchscreen infotainment system. It’s reasonably roomy in both front and back seats, with 470 litres of boot space. That outclasses every other EV in this price bracket. Rear seats don’t quite fold flat, though a height-adjustable boot floor gets around this, giving you a level platform for loading bigger bits of kit.

To conclude, you get plenty for your money here, which makes this a relatively affordable adventure vehicle. Ok, there’s no AWD or 4WD option, and the handling and ride quality aren’t exactly outstanding, but in terms of range and practicality, this is still a great choice. The MG ZS EV starts from £28,495.

Volkswagen ID.3

Price: £35,000
More info: volkswagen.co.uk

It’s not always easy (or sensible) to try and compare a car maker’s range of electric vehicles with their conventionally powered options. But so far, VW have made it fairly straightforward with their ID (‘Intelligent Design’) range of EVs. Basically, the ID.3 is designed to attract those looking for a family-sized hatchback who in the past might have visited showrooms to look at a VW Golf. Of course, there was an e-Golf too, but that looks like a normal car, whereas the ID.3 looks like… the future.

Pictured: The future

The ID.3 is a major launch for Volkswagen. It’s a versatile vehicle, reflected in the wide range of performance and range options available – all of which are largely dictated by the battery capacity. In turn, this means that while entry-level ID.3s are at the cheaper end of the EV market, the pricier models trade punches with rivals like the popular Tesla Model 3.

The base ID.3 battery is the Pure Performance 45kWh, which has an official range of 217 miles. This option comes with a 148bhp motor driving the rear wheels. The next rung up the ladder is the 58kWh battery, which is available with two power outputs: Pro (143bhp) or Pro Performance (201bhp). Real range tests for this mid-range model have shown it can do around 220 miles, which is very respectable. The top-end ID.3 is the Pro S, with a larger and heavier 77kWh battery powering the same 201bhp motor, giving an official maximum range of 336 miles – even more impressive.

The ID.3 boasts rapid charging at up to 100kW (125kW for the top-spec model). Plug it into your average 50kW service station charger and you’ll probably need to while away an hour to get to around 80% capacity. At home, with a 7kW wall box, going from empty to fully charged will take approximately nine hours. It’s not bad, but it isn’t quite as fast as a Tesla, and nor can you take advantage of Tesla’s extensive Supercharger network.

The ID.3 is quiet, easy to drive and reasonably well equipped, with plenty of safety kit. Some have grumbled at the build quality – something that was once a hallmark of VW cars. It’s not exactly cheap inside, but nor is it particularly premium. Similarly, space for cargo and passengers is pretty similar to a standard Golf. While that car was once a class leader, others have caught up, so now you would get a little more room inside some rivals, even other VW Group SUVs like the Skoda Enyaq.

So far, it hasn’t been the all-conquering, Tesla Model 3-destroying super hatch that VW execs hoped for. But the ID.3 is still a very good all-rounder, feeling nippy and fun to drive whilst retaining the adventure-ready practicality of a VW Golf. Prices start from around £35,000.

Mercedes EQS

Price: £102,000
More info: mercedes-benz.co.uk

Okay, an executive saloon may not sound like the most obvious or sensible choice as an adventure vehicle, but bear with us. Because Mercedes’ latest EV offering, the EQS – basically, an all-electric alternative to their premium S-Class – is impressive in many respects, but particularly when it comes to range. In fact, it’ll go further than any other EV on the market today, with an official maximum range of 453 miles between charges. That obviously opens up a whole raft of adventure opportunities. Put it this way: if you left London at 100% capacity, you could comfortably get all the way to the Lake District without needing to stop and plug in.

Getting there would also be a comfortable, quiet and refined experience. As you might expect from Mercedes, ride quality is excellent, handling is precise, and there’s plenty of on-board gadgetry too (the stand-out option being the brand’s Hyperscreen, a sprawling high-def display that runs nearly the entire length of the dash). It’s a big, wide car, so passenger space is good, and the tailgate opens hatchback-style too, offering a massive 610 litres of capacity. Obviously, it’s built for golf clubs and Louis Vuitton luggage sets rather than drybags and duffels, but short of a canoe, there’s probably space for everything you might want to pack if you were going on a hiking or climbing holiday.

How many hikers and climbers will actually be able to afford an EQS is a different matter. Even the cheapest AMG Line trim (which itself is hardly poverty-spec, coming with 20in alloy wheels, a panoramic roof, keyless entry and start, heated front and rear seats, and ambient interior lighting with a choice of 64 colours) will set you back some £102,000.

With that, you do get a year’s worth of free rapid charging at Ionity stations (although these are nowhere near as widespread as Tesla’s Supercharger network). The EQS has a battery capacity of 108kWh and can be charged at an ultra-rapid speed of up to 200kW (topping you up from 10% to 80% charge in just 31 minutes). On the other hand, a full charge from a 7kW home wallbox takes 15 hours 30 minutes.

Rivian

Price: $67,500 USD and the SUV at $72,500 USD (roughly £51,000 to 55,000)
More info: rivian.com

We’ll round out this selection with a look to the future, and a very exciting one it might be too. The Rivian is arguably the first custom-designed adventure EV, a vehicle that combines the go-anywhere utility of a Land Rover or a Jeep with the future-ready functionality of a Tesla. It should be available in both 7-seat SUV and pick-up truck form – and it’s supposedly coming to the UK too, although not until 2023 at the earliest.

The concept visuals for the Rivian are seriously cool, as is the spec sheet. The truck will apparently boast 4WD, accelerate from 0-60mph in just over 3 seconds, carry an 800kg payload and have the ability to tow up to 4,900kg. That’s plenty of grunt for pulling caravans, trailers and more. Even Land Rover’s new Defender, supposedly one of the most capable modern workhorses, is only rated to tow up to 3,500kg (a figure matched, incidentally, by the Rivian SUV). In addition, the Rivian is touted as having a 750hp quad-motor output, plus over a foot of ground clearance and a 1m water-fording capability.

Of course, we’re yet to find out how much of these incredible figures are genuine. The vehicle undoubtedly exists though – at least, prototypes have been spotted in the US and Canada. They boast a front-trunk, a large truck bed and – uniquely – a full-width ‘gear tunnel’ long enough for skis or surfboards. Alternatively, this can be fitted with a pull-out camp kitchen for overlanding expeditions. Other visuals we’ve seen have included a bespoke roof tent fitted to the truck bed. In short, it looks awesome. Ultimate adventure vehicles don’t get much better than this – it might even convert die-hard petrolheads.

Range is quoted at a highly impressive 400 miles, which puts the Rivian up there with the leading EVs on the market, like the Mercedes EQS saloon. Which charging network it will be able to use is still TBC, as is final figure pricing, though the Rivian website puts the entry-level ‘Explore’ truck at $67,500 USD and the SUV at $72,500 USD (roughly £51,000 to 55,000). Watch this space.
