Surprise us! Tell us something surprising about this car?
Regenerative braking means using only one foot to drive and it’s rather like riding a motorcycle and using the engine torque to slow down into corners.
What EV are you interested in next and why?
Possibly the Tesla Model Y or another Model 3!
What home charging unit do you use? Would you recommend it to others and why?
myenergi zappi2. Works well with my solar panels. Yes I would recommend it, it’s a great piece of kit.
What home electricity supplier & tariff do you use? Would you recommend it to others and why?
I’m on the Tesla Energy Plan from Octopus Energy. I would recommend it for the low-priced electricity and excellent export tariff.

I use the Tesla Supercharger network. Nothing else comes close.
Who do you insure your EV with? Would you recommend them to others and why?
Direct Line gave me the best price both initially and on renewal. Never had cause to use their accident services but reports from others give me confidence. I would recommend them.
