Why did you choose this car?
It was a good deal to start as it is a small and cheap EV on a 2 year lease totalling £6,740, therefore didn’t mind dipping in at that cost. I was also looking at reducing what I owe as PCPs are registered full on credit score so leasing appears a good idea and cheaper than what I was paying for an ICE with a balloon payment at the end.

What home charging unit do you use? Would you recommend it to others and why?
Pod Point – It works well, the App is so easy to use and connects to the internet. Charging schedule programme is done on the charger instead of the car. It also shows how much it costs and is very accurate.

Octopus Energy Go tariff – https://share.octopus.energy/clean-dingo-323

Instavolt – very easy to use, app, card or bank card all work very well.
Who do you insure your EV with? Would you recommend them to others and why?
LV – without doubt. Have tried to switch but they remain cheaper all the time with their renewal quotes.
