Another Audi E-tron. Too long to wait for their big battery to fill up so had to find another charger.

White Tesla Model 3, and this BMW I3 20 Reg who used the charger after us.

Bridgestone Tyres out of the Showroom for BMW.

Blue Tesla S.

Stuck in traffic on the A1, which was at a standstill and all the feeder roads clogged too.

We were attempting to visit Ravensworth castle, ten minutes from where I live.
Failed miserably.

Its been Tesla's in the main for me too, another model S.....lets say it was dark, and plenty model 3's most of them in white. BMW I3's are also becoming a regular spot, and there is a regular charger hoarder in one. It was literally plugged in all day to one of the 7kW Charging posts, and not for the first time. Ditto with a Mitsubishi Outlander Plug in Hybrid which is an even worse offender for being plugged in for ages.

On a full charge, the Outlander PHEV can travel up to 28 miles :-D

None, not to say they weren't there, just didn't see any, but parked at Aldi in Wrekenton and all four charging spaces occupied by ICE heaps. A Mercedes, an Evoque and two other boring things.
Worst thing was that there were dozens of unoccupied places for non-electric vehicles.

KIA e-Niro, Vauxhall Corsa-e, Leafs in light blue, grey, whites and probably a red or two as well.

I witnessed a bit of hard to explain parking the other day sitting in the car at Dobbies. There were plenty of free double and triple spaces in many areas of the car park. This Xsara Picasso proceded to pull in right next to me. His passenger in the back seat who was an old lady couldnt get out of her door and had to shuffle across the back seat to the other side to get out. So many other places he could have parked.

PS this is what an e-corsa looks like in blue for future spotting reference

2 Teslas today, a metallic blue 3 and a metallic crimson S. Both driving very cautiously through a deepish flood. I raised to go through it, wondering if they were worried about water and electric mixing!! :-D

Seen a couple of leafs recently (old shape) in light Blue. There was a bit of a gathering of EV's this evening two Zoes, one white one blue, a MG ZS EV, and the charger hogger (no not me!) but our 28 Miles Electric Range Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV. Thankfully a message was relayed and someone came down to unplug it and move it.

Here's the Zoe. The Number plate shows its from Martins of Reading Long way from home!

Only one TEsla a Model 3 in White, another Jaguar I Pace which would not surprise me if it was one of the NHS deal ones, new Nissan Leaf in blue charging buddy and first time ecotricity users too, and in general plenty of Leafs.

I think Renault must be doing a really bad job flogging Zoe's round here, I hardly ever see one on the road.

Did spot an interesting little business in Nevilles cross Classics and Electrics probably in the old North East Motorcycles premises. Had a couple of leafs parked outside alongside a couple of other everyday classics!
