It’s narrow enough to go in the garage. With the back seats down the boot is level & easy to get a set of golf clubs in. Both front seats are height adjustable.

Rate your EV out of 5.


What car are you interested in next and why?
Same again but they don’t make the Skoda CITIGOe anymore, so the VW e-up! or the SEAT Mii Electric for the narrow width.


What home charging unit do you use? Would you recommend it to others and why?
Normal domestic plug, don’t need to pay for a special charger.

Scottish Power – comfort plus control but not available anymore.


Rate your electricity supplier out of 5.


What public charging networks would you recommend to others and why?
Instavolt & Gridserve because they are contactless (i.e. you don’t need an app or RFID card). They are also reliable.


List your top 3 favourite public charging networks (in order of preference).

  1. ChargePlace Scotland (we live in Scotland)
  2. Instavolt
  3. Gridserve.


Who do you insure your EV with? Would you recommend them to others and why?
Direct Line – because we are both over 77 and it is difficult to find anyone else to insure 2 old fogeys.
