Several today...

A brand new Kona in white, in Algarrobo.
An Ioniq in Sayalonga village car park.
And an extremely drab-looking shark-grey Tesla 3 in our new neighbour's drive.

This last has been there for a few weeks now, being accompanied by an array of 24 large solar panels, rack-mounted on his hillside.

This is what you can get a Kona Electric for in the UK

Blue Tesla - 'S' I imagine. I find it hard to distinguish the S from the 3.
Birtley. Odd.

2 BMW i3's in convoy, one blue and one white, heading down the A1 into Finchley. :)

The usual Tesla crop probably about 4 model 3's all told, probably 75% of them in dull grey, and one Tesla Model X.

Then there was usual smattering of Leafs new and old. New one in blue look much more ordinary car like, got to say I like the the more distinctive old-shape Leafs especially in dark red with shiny ears, or indeed the older blue ones.

Mooching around Plugshare to see what was available up at Kielder in terms of charging points, and came across this photo.....nice! Not entirely surprised the plate AR 21 81 is almost certainly Dutch where AR is reserved for "Imported Old timers" pre 1973.

I believe the electrical system was liberated from a scrapped Sinclair C5...

Two Teslas. White Model 3 (I think) and a black Model S.

Over on the conversions thread I have been digging out some more info and pictures on our AR-11-81. It is indeed from the Netherlands and a 1965 model.

Saw my first Tesla in a local village, all I can say is it was red, only the ass end sticking out of the parking space. :)

White Tesla "S" in Birtley - I see most stuff like this in Birtley although I don't go there very often.

Probably passed by loads more butt nothing stuck out other than a BMW sports thing in black and orange. May have been electric. Like a shrunken i8.
