Why did you choose this car?
Looks very nice and not an obvious electric car by the look of it. Very cheap to run (£7 for 160 miles range, would be cheaper but not on a cheap overnight tariff at the moment). Fun to drive and the instant acceleration is really nice!

  • Looks good
  • Cheap to run
  • Fun to drive.

 

Negatives – List 3 or more things that you really don’t like about this car.

  • Front windscreen pillar can be a bit obstructive
  • Steering wheel set-up and dials above the wheel may not suit everyone, as you may not be able to see them well depending on seat set-up.

 

Have you experienced any faults with the car? If so, what have they been?
Driver side window sticks when going back up from bottom.

What car are you interested in next and why?
The Hyundai IONIQ 5, as it’s got good range and looks really nice.

 

What home charging unit do you use? Would you recommend it to others and why?
zappi – highly recommend to others as it looks nice and it’s reliable. Also hooked up to my solar panels so can charge directly via them or do a mix of solar and energy from the grid. Can set it to charge for certain times too via an app on my phone.
