Good discussion but back to the mundane of simple spotting. :-D

A crop of three Tesla Model 3's two whites and a blue, BMW I3 and parked next to this but have to hide it in the spoiler. Yes its a KIA Niro but the it has the eco/hybrid badge.....yes its a "self Charging Hybrid"
Spoiler: show
Not the eco-electric, not the eco-plugin<br />the eco-hybrid
Not the eco-electric, not the eco-plugin

I’ve noticed a lot of cars these days especially small cheap ones only have one reversing light and one rear fog light. Seems like a case of excessive penny pinching to me!
Quite a few of them have only one headlight and no indicators. :)

No indicators very common on Audi's and BMW's I find ! :-D

UK spec TESLAS only have one reversing light. The other "reversing light" is a foglight. (just like the Nissan Micra e 2005 :-D ).

Certainly the model 3 and also the Model S according to the wisdom of the TESLA motors club linked in my original post. Been a while since anyone spotted a Model X maybe its the same for those too

Lob the evidence up here if you stumble across it on your travels :-D

A black Tesla, sticking in the centre lane of the A1 at 60mph.
At least it wasn't in the Audi lane.

Two BMW I3's, Red Leaf, Hyundai Ioniq "full electric" in blue.

No TESLAs, so no further evidence from a reversing TESLA :-D

A White Leaf which nearly ran me over when I finished filling the C5 and walked across the forecourt to the shop. I presume he had been doing his weekly shop for obvious reasons. :-D

I dont know if electric car makers are targeting viewers of old episodes of the Sweeney or the Saint but at least 3 different car adverts for electric cars featured in the breaks. Peugeot e-208, e2008, Mini electric, Zoe.

No adverts for TESLA but after Leafs probably the commonest electric vehicle spot on Northumberland roads right now. Yes way off an avalanche but another couple today, Model 3's. White and Grey

A little montage of todays spots.

The 50 points for an unusual spot must go to the Red Model X TESLA.

Probably passed loads today, been to Teesside. Poor observational skills means not a single one seen.

This might help Steve!

From "the Autumn" new "green Flash" Number Plates will be introduced across the UK for zero emission vehicles.

Or possibly not as I rarely look at registration plates.
