Why did you choose this car?
There is a good charging network all over UK and Europe, it is a all-around good car and we always wanted one.


Positives – List 3 or more reasons why you love this car.

  • Technology
  • Reliable
  • All-round great family car.


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

  • Upfront costs
  • Some people’s negativity to the brand
  • No other dislikes I’m afraid.


Have you experienced any faults with the car? If so, what have they been?
None at all. All perfect even on collection day.


What are the standout tech features of the car?
Tesla is well known for its tech. No other cars out there offer what this car does; still makes us smile owning it and it’s a pleasure to drive.


Surprise us! Tell us something people wouldn’t readily know about this car.
I think most people know about Tesla ha. Did you know there are loads of funny voice commands like “my butt is cold” and the heated seats will come on?!


Rate your EV out of 5.


What car are you interested in next and why?
Another Tesla. But we are way off changing this car so you never know in the years to come what else will be out there.


What home charging unit do you use? Would you recommend it to others and why?
We use a Pod Point 7kW tethered charger. It’s been brilliant. We got it installed with our first EV which was a 38kWh 2020 Hyundai IONIQ, another great EV. The charger is brilliant and has been faultless since its install now nearly 2 years ago.

What home electricity supplier & tariff do you use? Would you recommend it to others and why?
We are with Octopus Energy on their Go Faster tariff. It’s brilliant as we get 4 hours of cheap charging time and it’s also ideal for me to put the washer and dryer on at the same time as charging the car. Octopus Energy has been brilliant, I’d definitely recommend them and their EV-friendly tariffs. Amazing that they are a 100% renewable company, so all clean, green energy.

Who do you insure your EV with? Would you recommend them to others and why?
Direct Line for us. They have been good insuring both our EVs. I’m sure a lot of people have used them, obviously, insurance is a very individual thing, prices vary a lot for different people based on a lot of different factors.


Rate your insurance provider out of 5.
