Grey tesla model 3, and Grey Nissan Leaf, the other day I had a chat with an e-mini owner at the charger. As with many people he operated the detached hybrid system....a EV for general running about, and a fossil (BMW X5 SUV thing in his case).

Quite a feast today, a decent crop of Leafs red/white/black old style, white/grey new style.

I also "bagged a brace" of blue 20-reg Hyundai Ioniq's one at the car wash, and the other on the Osprey outside M&S.

Then bagged a brace of brand new MG EV's, plus a black second hand MGEV.

..and a spotters guide for the new kid in town...MG5 SW EV. I do hope the SW stands for Station Wagon, although for the UK Market they could have used SB for Shooting Brake

There was a BMW in the charging bay at my Tesco when I called in there yesterday, not sure if it was an EV or a typical BMW driver parking in the wrong bay. :-D

If it had a face like this it was probably a genuine charger-upper :-D . The I3 is quite distinctive and their only fully electric offering at the moment, but they do have a crop of plug-in hybrids which may look more typical BMW like.

Last time I opened my "Charging Flap" I discovered that I had left the petrol cap on the spoiler the previous time I filled up :(

Yet another Tesla model 3 in white - I wonder if it is the same one each time.
The car park for B&M, Greggs, Aldi, a huge Iceland place and some other big shop was well filled so probably missed loads of others, as well as 21 reg plates. Always forget to look.
