A lonely Leaf. Passed a bungalow kitted out for electric car charging with two ice cars in the drive, no electric cars in sight.

Yes, seems to be. :)

Although we are not driving much at the moment, pretty much every time we go any significant distance in the car I'll spot a Model 3, sometimes more than one. The other day I spotted one in a dark metalic grey (simialr to the Silex Grey of the Xantia) which was a first in that colour. Looked quite nice but very understated, definitely not a "look at me" colour like a red Model 3!

Certainly much nicer than black or white, which seem to be the two most common Model 3 colours. I think the dark metalic grey really suits the Leaf too - one lives about mile up the road from me, and I think it would be my preferred colour of Leaf.

Now this is a reasonably rare sight, maybe because they look just like a Golf.

Owner loves the car had it about a year 11,000 miles and paid less than £10 for fuel.
