Surprise us! Tell us something surprising about this car?
The sweeping ID light below the interior of the windscreen adds a surprisingly helpful element to navigation e.g. the sweeping left or right for upcoming turns makes driving less stressful in unfamiliar surroundings. Also adds an extra dimension to things like incoming calls so you’re not distracted.

 

What car are you interested in next and why?
Ford F-150 Lightning Pickup. Would love to try an electric pickup to see how range and handling translate to such a platform.

 

What home charging unit do you use? Would you recommend it to others and why?
Garo GLB 22kW – would recommend due to 4G mobile connection and designed for cold Nordic climate.

 

What home electricity supplier & tariff do you use? Would you recommend it to others and why?
Fortum (Sweden) – fixed price 12p per kWh.

 

What public charging networks do you use? Would you recommend them to others and why?
E.ON – availability is very good and prices are reasonable. Nearly all charging points are in good working condition. IONITY – although network isn’t as developed, the app and speed of charging is good.

 

Who do you insure your EV with? Would you recommend them to others and why?
Länsförsäkringar.
