Surprise us! Tell us something surprising about this car?
It has no rear wiper – madness!
What car are you interested in next and why?
Possibly a Hyundai Kona EV or a Kia e-Niro as a family runaround.
What home charging unit do you use? Would you recommend it to others and why?
Wallbox – I’m happy with it, it’s easy to schedule charging and see total charge cost reports.
What home electricity supplier & tariff do you use? Would you recommend it to others and why?
Octopus Go – 4 hours of cheap charging overnight is ample for my day-to-day use and the day rate is still OK.
What public charging networks do you use? Would you recommend them to others and why?
IONITY as it is cheap for the first year with the car, although not as fast as advertised. MFG has handily placed 150kw charger installations with 6-8 chargers on location, so I’m more confident that I’ll not have to wait.
Who do you insure your EV with? Would you recommend them to others and why?
Churchill – happy with their service as my existing provider, and rates are competitive.
