An AWD IONIQ 5, RWD is fine when it’s not winter.


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

Rolec – it’s very over sensitive to voltage variations in our supply and turns itself off too often.

What home electricity supplier & tariff do you use? Would you recommend it to others and why?

OVO – I wouldn’t recommend them unless you burn gas for your heating because, despite claiming to be green, unless you are on a dual fuel contract they won’t offer cheap car charging rates.

Who do you insure your electric car with? Would you recommend them to others and why?
