I commute 80 miles a day - should I buy an EV?

I am confused about which "green" car I should buy. I have a budget of £10k max and need to commute 40 miles each way without a charging point in my school.

I think you'll struggle to find an electric car for £10k that'll comfortably cover 80 miles from a charge. A hybrid would be a better option - take a look at the Toyota Yaris Hybrid.
