Surprise us! Tell us something surprising about this car?
It’s efficiency is greater than what is specified.

 

What EV are you interested in next and why?
Maybe a slightly smaller version of my Kia with 800v charging and possibly a solid state battery.

 

What home charging unit do you use? Would you recommend it to others and why?
Pod Point 7.2kW home charger – I would recommend it as I have had zero problems with it in nearly 2½ years.

 

What home electricity supplier & tariff do you use? Would you recommend it to others and why?
Octopus Go Faster – highly recommended. This tariff gives 5 hours charging at the cheap rate of 5.5p/kWh. It also has different time slots during the evening from 20:30 to 03:30. Also has a three hour time slot at 4.5p/kWh and a 4 hour time slot at 5p/kWh.

 

What public charging networks do you use? Would you recommend them to others and why?
Instavolt, Osprey, Pod Point and the new Gridserve/Electric Highway chargers. Contactless payment or app and always seem to work.

 

Who do you insure your EV with? Would you recommend them to others and why?
Direct Line – I would recommend to others as they were not only the least expensive but they also include cable theft cover and battery damage cover in their policy for EVs.
