Was that Tesla a metallic bottle green Neil or is it my screen playing tricks? :)

Yes I'd have thought that more likely James, but when I zoomed in and compared the body colour to the end of the number plate blue, it looks decidedly greeny on my screen but I didn't think they did one, hence the question. :-D

Not bottle green Mick, when I first saw it I thought it was just a black, some people like black cars I know, but not me if I could afford a Tesla I wouldn't choose a black one. Back home with the photo it looks more obviously gray than black.

PSA's finest Vauxhall e-Corsa
The one with snow on the windscreen is the electric one.

The e-corsa and the Peugeot 208-e share the same platform. The subtle diffs are explored here.

Saw an ID3 on the move today, white one, so I think a different one to the one I saw the other week.

This morning (around 07:00) I saw what I believe to be an Audi e-tron (according to the side badges) on Netherland plates.

I did discover the perhaps appropriate definition of the "tron" bit of the name Audi chose.

Audi's token BEV effort the E-tron.......now surprisingly the urban dictionary describes Tron as
A verb. To "tron" someone is to rush past said person who is walking to get ahead of them, usually in a line or queue; popularized in both Tron movies as the Light Cycles.
Maybe Audi did indeed consult the urban dictionary for the name of their flagship EV :-D

Either that, or try to get some of the image of Jeff Bridges (who starred in two futuristic films; "Tron" and "Tron Legacy").

I wonder how long it will be before we have to start an "ICE Vehicles: What have you spotted?" thread. :-D My guess is 2026/27 :)
