EV Spotting

I see more electric cars on the road every day now, they are no longer the novelty they used to be. In my area I see many Nissan Leafs and a few ZOEs. And, of course, it seems like the Mitsubish Outlander PHEV is everywhere!

I saw my first Tesla Model S in my hometown of Northampton a few months back – that seems like a milestone of sorts.

A week later I was travelling down to London and called in to the London Gateway services for a charge. By the time I had finished and was packing up to leave I had been joined by an Outlander and a BMW i3, all 3 cars lined up in a row at the chargepoints. Hopefully such a tableau will be commonplace in the future.

Of course, it did highlight that only the ZOE has its charging socket at the right end!

    Yeah, same in Dundee now, my nearest CP a triple head rapid just 4 miles away where there is also two 22Kw points i used to usually be the only one charging, yesterday there was an Outlander and Audi (or Merc. cant remember) on the rapid, a 65 plate Zoe and a Co wheels Zoe on the 22Kw, Bloody cheek I had to charge at home 😉

    I met my first Zoe drive in the wild at the weekend, totally unexpected, and it was good to chat to another Zoe driver

    Around here Zoes are a bit rare but the local dealer has sold a few so should pick up. This year we’ve seen plenty of Leafs, about 4 Tesla and the i3 is getting a more common sight. The bloke driving the G-Wiz I see on my commute near Belton on the B5324 gets my respect, especially the last couple of times I’ve seen him all wrapped up in a heavy coat.
