Negatives – List 3 or more things that you really don’t like about this car.

  • Shallow boot with false floor in
  • terrible boot load cover
  • small front door pockets (relative to the enormous ones Skoda has and my last car had).

 

Surprise us! Tell us something surprising about this car?
The frunk swallows up all the random stuff you normally have cluttering up a boot for emergency use along with all the charging cables.

 

What car are you interested in next and why?
No idea yet as this one is so new to me.

 

What home charging unit do you use? Would you recommend it to others and why?
The granny cable that came with the car but have a zappi being fitted next week.

 

What home electricity supplier & tariff do you use? Would you recommend it to others and why?
Currently Good Energy standard tariff which isn’t good as an EV-specific one but the current market conditions mean it is hard to change to EV tariffs.

 

What public charging networks do you use? Would you recommend them to others and why?
IONITY (as it is cheap with the one year subscription that comes with the car) and Gridserve’s Electric Highway for easy motorway charging where they have new infrastructure.

 

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