What electric car are you interested in next and why?

Will keep the i3 for as long as it’s reliable, the best car I’ve had in 40 years of driving. Looking for a slightly larger electric SUV to replace our BMW X1 hybrid but nothing with sufficient range is available (at least 250 motorway speed miles).


What home charging unit do you use? Would you recommend it to others and why?

BP Chargemaster – it’s been trouble free (3 years old) but not very sophisticated.
