Surprise us! Tell us something surprising about this car?
The sudden stop when close to objects or a vehicle in front!
What car are you interested in next and why?
I think I’d like to move to Tesla (equivalent to VW ID.3) as they seem to have top class technology and infrastructure and a better holding range!!!
What home charging unit do you use? Would you recommend it to others and why?
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?
Only best one that seems to work for me is ESB Energy at Wanstead Station, East London. Pod Points at Tesco Norfolk Supercharger is hopeless but the free 7.5 or 20kw is OK and lucky I have friends there with ‘normal’ cars who give me lift back and forth to drop off and collect my car! Pod Point at Lidl in Crowthorne, Berkshire is hit & miss!!!
Who do you insure your EV with? Would you recommend them to others and why?
LV – been with them for years!
