An Audi Etron.at least that's what I assumed the big gobbed grey German behemoth with the green flash coming the other way was!!
I've seen a few e-Tron's lately too. They come in a variety of models in a couple of different shapes. Seems to be a whole series of models sharing the same underlying platform under the "e-Tron" moniker.

My other polestar spot was this one in Grey.

But this one was the spot, and chat of the day. Very impressed with the Polestar 2, the couple from Sheffield enthused about the car, and I even overlooked it being sort of grey. They got it in preference to a TESLA, and the Polestar 2 was their first electric car, and took advantage of the various Company car incentives to go electric.

Here it is

In the flesh it didn't look too bad in Grey. So that's Black, White and Grey covered...

Ah.... that means I have to refine my spotting! I saw another one that looked like it was Q7 based / equivalent. Mahoooosive!!!

I keep forgetting to mention but I've seen about 4 polestars recently.

They're a little bit anonymous looking IMO so it was only when I spotted the unusual marque logo that I realised what they were.

Some of them were white and some black - haven't seen them in actual "colours"! :-D
They don't appear to come in real colours:

Snow = white
Magnesium = light grey
Thunder = dark grey
Moon = not sure? sort of browney-grey colour
Midnight = dark blue
Black (which is listed as void on the website!, but I suspect that is because it is the only free one)

With a few touches on your phone you could rent one - only about £20-£25k over 3 years for 30k miles. Bargain :rofl2:

We play Tesla spotting with the boys when out and about - red earns bonus points as it's such an expensive option - unsurprisingly we haven't seen many....

Anyone fancy playing Nissan Leaf Snooker?

I am doing quite well over the last couple of days

Two Cue Balls
One Red
and today One Blue

Black should be easy enough, but could be waiting some time for a pink, and yellow, green and brown may be thin on the ground :)

Not entirely impossible though

Electric Car snooker would be the more general game. Porsche Taycan's can supply the green :-D

A black MG whispered past me in Monmouth this afternoon, not sure if it was electric or if the guy was pedalling. :-D

Apart form the usual Teslas, one of which a fleeting oncoming view through the rain and spray may have been some sort of silver-ey Model S, these two stood out.

1. Yet another Audi E-tron. The front badge tells us its an S-Line. The rear badges tells us its a 55 quattro.

Second day in a row we have the raindrop beads on the bonnet.

2. A BMW i3 Fully electric 14 Registration....Surely has to be in the under £10k category now :?:
Small bit of research required but I would be surprised if it is.

Another model 3. White with black (glass)? roof.
On the congested A1M. There were probably others around too.
I have a suspicion that it is the same one I see all the time. Can't remember the reg though (can't remember my own, keep a photo on my phone).

Pretty routine return trip to Elstree, 1 x BMW, 2 Teslas and the usual VW. This is the last entry I shall make for those as they are mainly repeats on my trips to Elstree. However I did see an exceedingly rare electric golf cart going along the cycle track beside the road! How would he stand with the law I wonder? :-D

According to adverts I have seen, there are some new ones to look out for in the next few months:

Hyundai Ioniq5



Kia EV6: https://www.kia.com/uk/new-cars/ev6/

These two are from £37k (Hyundai) and £41k (Kia) so not exactly in the family hack price range!!

Two from BMW:

iX SUV
and I4 saloon

Mercedes EQC 400 4-matic in Black, and this pair one of which is a brand new original photo for the thread. Richard did spot one the other day.
MAZDA MX-30 GT SPORT TECH EV 2021 and a VW Id3

Others and there were plenty TESLA model 3/and S, Jaguar I-Pace and one of those nice light blue classic Leafs.
