Polar charger installed in 2016, never an issue with it and it was free. No intelligence so cannot get the intelligent tariff from Octopus (but the Zoe is not supported either).

Octopus Go Faster 6 hours – very good average rate 24p/kWh.

Pod Point – mainly at railway stations.

It’s a company car so I save a lot of tax around £2k/year.
