I spotted a Toyota Miria on the M25/M40 today. Lime green, reg WV17 HOJ (although when I looked it up on GSF it couldn't find it, although ECP got it right, for a change!).

Not fried, one hopes - or is that too oblique?

Last Monday, mid-morningish a very old (I'd guess pre-war - or possibly a wartime utility model) milk float gamely crawling up the hiill, northbound, into Buxton.

I'm sure they're working on them, but I wasn't aware there were any already on the road that might have overtaken harryp. :lol:

The McLaren P1 is a hybrid car (albeit with a very limited electrical power range).

Yes....
An 18 Reg
and the New Nissan Leaf

and....It isn't as easily recognised as the quirky shape of the old one so walked past it and thought it was just an ordinary modern car

Not the brightest of colours as is the current vogue but have to say...well done Nissan

Touring round Iceland last week, and not many E-spots out in the wilds, unsurprisingly. There were plenty in Reykjavik however, Leafs, Tesla and I spotted two Ionic full EVs. I may have followed an electric Golf as well, not 100% sure.
