It turns out my Renault ZOE is no longer the only one in my local area, around Northampton. An almost identical but newer Dynamique Intens has turned up, and I’ve seen it in Northampton and nearby Wellingborough. It’s even the same Energy Blue colour. I’m embarrassed to say I can always tell which one is mine, it’s the dirtiest one!

While catching a charge recently at the Renault dealership in Bletchley I spotted a ZOE with the rather neat registration number of “EV13 ZOE” (where, of course, EV is ‘Electric Vehicle’).

Meanwhile I saw the first BMW i3 in my home town of Northampton recently. It was just sitting outside the local shopping centre/health centre looking entirely at home. For sure it will be the first of many.

    I was in Northampton Thursday night in my Blue one. Caught a charge at Rothersthorpe North and the slip road back on had been blocked. Late night finish. That white i3 looks like a stormtrooper!

    I considered getting a personal played plate EV xx ZOE, for what is worth DVLA have several plates all around £599 if your interested.

    I am always looking for yours when i venture into Northampton from Kettering Trevor.
    We should have a Northampton coffee meet one of these days and see how many Zoe’s we can gather.

    heh, love the EV__ ZOE plate…

    I followed an i3 through Liverpool the other day, and it was even uglier to see for real than the pics… I was kinda disappointed.. not what I’d expect from BMW! 🙁

    I saw an i3 on the Knowsley expressway some time ago covers in the BMW garage logo and name. I’ve not seen a private one yet. Then again only seen one other zoe and three leafs.

    I saw a stormtrooper broken down on on the m40 hard shoulder last week. About 5 miles north of Warwick services.

    All we need to do now Molehill Mike and Samsam is to get Trevor on board for a Northampton meet and sort out a suitable date and location and we are on. A few Zoes’ turning up at once might turn a few heads 🙂
