Surprise us! Tell us something surprising about this car?
It’s more spacious than it appears, it swallows up my gardening equipment including a mower, strimmer and various tools with ease!
What car are you interested in next and why?
I’m not really sure, definitely another EV but the market is growing by the day and it is not an easy decision now.
What home charging unit do you use? Would you recommend it to others and why?
I have an ancient Rolec. There are much better and smarter chargers available now so no, not recommended 7 years down the line.
What home electricity supplier & tariff do you use? Would you recommend it to others and why?
Ours went bust so now with Octopus on their standard tariff. This question currently redundant because the market has broken!

Instavolt – reliable and easy to use. Pod Point – destination chargers, usually free. We mainly charge at home.
Who do you insure your EV with? Would you recommend them to others and why?
Admiral – no claims experience with them so unable to answer this fairly.
