Surprise us! Tell us something surprising about this car?
Range in miles is accurate.
What car are you interested in next and why?
Something with a longer range. Although long journeys aren’t that often, following our first, a longer range would make the day more smoother.
What home charging unit do you use? Would you recommend it to others and why?
Awaiting Pod Point install end of this month.
What home electricity supplier & tariff do you use? Would you recommend it to others and why?
Octopus Go (awaiting to be moved onto tariff) – 5p kWh charging for four hours a night. Set Pod Point to charge only between these hours and running costs can be as low as £4!
What public charging networks do you use? Would you recommend them to others and why?
The biggest bug bear is public chargers. There is no consistency! A pre-authorisation can be anything from £12 upwards! Compared to fuel ‘pay at pump’ which is normally £1. The costs also hover around 30p kWh meaning long journeys can be more expensive than fuel counterparts. Also the lack of reliable chargers means you are often driving around looking for one to work and those that have one working often only have one charger point 🤨
Who do you insure your EV with? Would you recommend them to others and why?
Insured through the lease deal. Can’t comment.
