I know that the Mitsubishi Phev can tow, but what other hybrid/electric vehicles are out there which would comfortably tow a mid-range caravan weighing around 1,500 kgs?

I have looked at some forums and it seems to suggest that towing with a hybrid is not to be recommended.

could you imagine all the cars/lorries/buses and everything else plugged in to the network and there is another power outage on the grid, the country will come to a standstill. I have heard and read that we only produce 5% more electric that we need so when that's used up where do we go then. solar/wind and wave power is already added into this %.

well actually if you visit Lee on the Solent you will see 3 or 4 very large  pipes popping out of the sea and onto the beach at the western end of the prom, these pipes will carry cables capable of transporting electricty, the other end of the pipes is on the shore of France and the intention is to buy electricity from the French nuclear power stations for use in the UK, work that one out. undecided

the price will go up on the first November after Brexit. That's if they don't disconnect it on the French side. surprised
