What car are you interested in next and why?
I think by the time I am getting my next car there will be a huge number of options. Mainly a car with the same quality but double the range and faster charging will be my dream coming true.

I don’t have a home charging unit.
What home electricity supplier & tariff do you use? Would you recommend it to others and why?
What public charging networks do you use? Would you recommend them to others and why?
GeniePoint and Instavolt – both work perfectly fine at 50kWh, however Instavolt is more expensive. Used IONITY twice and wasn’t a great experience, slower than the 50 ones despite claiming 350kwh speed and way more expensive.

My insurance is included in the lease.
