Surprise us! Tell us something surprising about this car?
The charging times are backwards. For example, if you’re on Octopus Go and want it to charge 12:30-4:30 you have to set the times it can’t charge.
What car are you interested in next and why?
We’re only 1 year in so have another few years before considering and EVs are changing and being introduced so quickly, it’ll be a different choice by then.
What home charging unit do you use? Would you recommend it to others and why?
We use the 3 pin charger supplied with the car. It’s a bit short but is all we need for the mileage we do.

What home electricity supplier & tariff do you use? Would you recommend it to others and why?
Octopus Go – yes, it’s a great tariff if you charge a lot. Octopus are a novel company too, they even loaned me a heat camera so I could spot cold areas of my house.
