Simon has a quite exhaustive treatise on the deficiencies of hydrogen fuelled as opposed to BEV cars.

Spotted a Red leaf over the weekend, bit of an Odd red colour, but a refreshing change from white!

Here's an interesting video. This was a few years back, the new ones are faster!

Citroen C-Zero spotted at the retail park down in Bletchley yesterday afternoon.

First time I think I've seen one of them in the wild.

White one?

If so, I spotted the same one down by the Three Locks near Soulbury on my bike ride :) About a mile south of Stoke Hammond...

Now we know where he was going!

Same one then... Now, here's a question... How often is the same interesting car independently spotted by two FCF members on the same day?

I have probably passed loads without them registering - not very observant :)

Red model S today, must be a new one as it had the revised front end. The usual red one I see is an older one, so not the same car.

Still want one!

240 miles from Motherwell to Dornock yesterday and I only recognised one EV - a BMW i3 somewhere between Aviemore and Dornoch.

C'mon you Scottish EV drivers, where are you. :D

Edit: correction! I just remembered I did pass a black Tesla Model X as well. So make that two. Not a lot though!
