What EV are you interested in next and why?
Happy with this one, not researching yet but would include a newer LEAF in my research next time.
What home charging unit do you use? Would you recommend it to others and why?
Rolec with extras: meter, key lock and choice of amperage. We have solar panels, so if it’s not bright sunshine, I can charge more slowly. Rolec was a reasonable price, we don’t have or need a smart meter.
What home electricity supplier & tariff do you use? Would you recommend it to others and why?
Ecotricity on their EV tariff, which is lower for night rate. I like the way they invest in their own wind turbines and make green gas instead of just buying green ‘credits’.
What public charging networks do you use? Would you recommend them to others and why?
Almost always charge at home. As my recent experience is low, I will leave comments to others.
Who do you insure your EV with? Would you recommend them to others and why?
LV – because they have a specific EV policy.
