I liked that Tesla are very contrary, breaking the mould and doing things differently. No high pressure sales, no keys, no service schedule etc. The car itself, I like the performance and the high-tech stuff.

Surprise us! Tell us something surprising about this car?
Under the front trunk there’s a small amount of storage, I put my cables there. Despite it being small there’s a button inside, illuminated, to allow the bonnet release…as though someone could get in there!
What car are you interested in next and why?
I’ve three more years with this one so not sure yet.
What home charging unit do you use? Would you recommend it to others and why?
I use a Tesla Wall Charger. It works well with the Tesla and has a button on the handle to open the charge port. As the Tesla has a good app for scheduling and charging there’s no need for a smart charger.
