Initially, what did you find most confusing about electric car ownership and how did you solve that?

So many controls! I spent most of December 2020 sitting in it on my drive.

 

What sources of information helped you e.g. people, groups, websites etc?

YouTube and Nissan LEAF UK Facebook groups.

 

What are your top 3 pieces of advice for those people considering their first electric car?

Get your own charger and see if your energy company has its own in order to go on an EV tariff. It’s saving me a huge amount as the overnight rate is only 5p/kWh.
