What car are you interested in next and why?
Nothing at present.
What home charging unit do you use? Would you recommend it to others and why?
Wallbox Pulsar Plus – would recommend for it’s small size, neat installation and sufficient features for the first time owner.
What home electricity supplier & tariff do you use? Would you recommend it to others and why?
Octopus Fixed Tariff – I don’t think Octopus are as great as everyone makes out, but certainly no worse than the big 6. So recommended as a reliable supplier. All their ‘good’ tariffs require a working smart meter so being in an area where smart meters do not work may put people off. Recommend doing your homework before switching.
What public charging networks do you use? Would you recommend them to others and why?
So far have not needed to use public charging much. I have used Osprey twice, both times were seamless use of contactless payment and good speed (49kW).
Who do you insure your EV with? Would you recommend them to others and why?
Admiral – recommended for the MultiCar cover.
