Plenty today many Leafs, 1 Tesla Model 3 in White, and 1 Tesla Model 3 in Black with the vegetable slicer wheels.

And this thing here. But what is is it has a bage on the back saying "eco electric" one of those totally meaningless brandings. It was definitely a plug in, but is it a hybrid or is it the full 100% electric KIA e-Niro. :?:

Check the front. The full BEV e-Niro has a blanked out grill at the level of the charging plug, while the hybrid has a normal grill. If it's the same car from the picture in the other thread it's the BEV.

Same one Simon. I thought they would have labelled it up E-Niro or Niro EV , which had me wondering if it was some kind of hybrid so thanks for identifying it for what it is. Some time ago I put all of the meaningless badging into my personal room 101. I am afraid "Eco-Electric" joins them in 101 for me.

White tesla model 3, a range of colourful leafs....well white, grey and red!, and the first manual dash-cam capture of a proper Hyundai Ionic in blue ie the one that says "electric" (as opposed to plug in hybrid, or the one identified as just "hybrid" which I presume is "self-charging" a la Toyota).
not the manual dash-cam's finest hour

Saw a nice Enfield 8000 today. A rare spot worth quite a bit in the I-Spy book :-D

I don't know if it's still the case, but the little Enfield held the record for the quickest street legal BEV... albeit in slightly modified form :-D

And here is Johny Smith's highly modified 500bhp Enfield. :rofl2:







10.1 second quarter mile (2nd video) is pretty damn quick. Faster than a top spec Tesla Model S.

I did think that must have been an April fools stunt, but plenty you tube evidence to back it up!

It's such a shame they didn't come off the production line in that state of 'tune'. Life would have been much more exciting if they had :lol:
