An electric car will be relatively new so is unlikely to have such issues and would be bought through a dealer who would check that and give a warranty. More than that you can't do on a second hand car as at the end of the day they are all pop luck to a degree.

As things stand I am going to lease a car from ONTO for a few months and see how I go as I presently spend the same cost as the lease on my petrol guzzler anyway and my father needs another car and has always had his eyes on mine. When I know more about driving electric and my work situation is ore secure I'll start making more permanent plans about what I drive and where I live.

Electric: 1/3 the maintenance cost. 1/4 the "fuel" cost (very country dependant)

Yes, this is why the i3 costs more, water managed and after 5 years no battery degradation at all.
