Speaking truth to (under)power

It curdles milk just to look at it.
The Lord Mayor of Hull recognises that the Nissan Leaf is a load of rubbish and that he'd rather be found dead in a pond filled with shopping trolleys rather than drive the rotten little thing while there's a perfectly good Jag going spare.

The man has gone stark raving sane.

I recently drove from Southeast OH to Lake Erie and back, a 300+ mile round trip, in a 2012 Dodge Avenger V6 (rental). It took about 5/8 of a 12-gallon tank to do it. I'd have to call that pretty efficient.

I doubt a Nissan Leaf, Toyota Prius, Chevy Volt, etc., could manage it. Let alone with two adult passengers and a boot full of luggage.

The Telegraph article seems to have gone missing. Link's fine, there's just nothing there. Even using the search on The Telegraph's site comes back with a link that goes nowhere. I don't know what's going on.
