When the Corsa had been loaded on the transporter off to be recycled, a black 15 Reg Leaf appeared in its former parking slot. We all have our preferences for car colours but black is one of my excluded ones.

Its the usual suspects round here...there is one regular white Zoe but others of that breed are not a very frequent sight. After reading the VW/Skoda corporate strategy for the Skoda E-Citygo ie a 400 quota for 2020 for the UK, over subscribed , I sort of think either Renault arent trying that hard to sell Zoe's over here, or just aren't producing enough.

The others A BMW I3 habitual charger hogger, and a Grey Tesla Model 3.

Theres going to be a programme on TV tonight ( literally the Programme is called "Tonight" 7.30 ITV)

Electric Cars are we ready? Well without seeing a second I would be very surprised if the answer is "Yes of course we are" I do hope there is some footage of someone saying the "UK is a World leader in electric vehicles"

I've a feeling I may have a few shout at the telly moments to enjoy :-D

I've set the box to record "Tonight" as I want to get the last map plotted and that job put to bed. So I'll be hollering at the TV later!! :-D

Could be Steve, it was being towed by an unmarked 4 x 4 pickup and looked private rather than a dealer delivery!! :-D

Number plate a bit blurry in the "dealer detail"

If its www.vwfsfleet.co.uk I would suspect one of the NHS Jag I-Paces

It kept disappearing. Some odd quirk of viewing the uploaded pic in preview seemed to make it disappear when I posted for real!

I've just watched the recording of last night's "Tonight". We didn't find out a thing we weren't aware of on the FCF I don't think. It certainly seems that the public is divided in general so hopefully the ICE option will see me out!! I simply don't want to take out finance of any sort now and I doubt if I'll have sufficient spare capital at any point to buy an EV outright!! I feel a DIY conversion may be my only option so back to the MX3 one day!! :)

Heres one of the chargers that normally works and a scenic location Gibside National Trust and a Black Tesla Model 3 Charging buddy.
Nice spot for a top up.
