Thought it might have been electric. Haven't seen an electric MG yet.

Out on a fairly long trip yesterday to Dunbar (150mile round trip nearly) and I only saw 2 - a 2008 (badly parked in North Berwick!) and a Quashquai.

Ashington brought 3 in quick succession, a grey “green flash” most likely a Kia or Vw A grey Mazda the big saloon one, and a black Audi a saloon type thing too.

Not very accurate but 3 to the total

I followed a 22 Zoe this morning (no green flash) and a Kia Nero that was a hybrid I think.

KIA E-Niro in some sort of red. Anecdotally with no relationship to the scientific method, I would not be surprised if KIA took the top sales in March 2022 when the SMMT get round to letting us know how dreadful new car sales have been in March.

Seems miles away but isn't.
If zoom in it seems unable to focus.

Even odder Steve, when I zoom in and then scroll the numberplate seems to scroll in and out of focus as it moves up and down my screen (apart from being on its side of course!) :-D

A Tesla 3 on 22 plate hurried past me today, urban 40 limit which I was observing. Bit gloomy so lights on. Came up behind him at a junction with a bit of trtaffic jam, he sat for 2 phases of the lights with footbrake on and indicator flashing. Take care, I thought, those lights will knock at least 5 metres off your useable range .....

(bit cross about Tesla and the City council at the moment. Big park and ride site now has a serried rank of Tesla chargers, must be at least a dozen, but no provision at all for any other evs. They are very visible from the main road so a big tesla advert on public land. Happy for city council to provide space for charging points, but not just for the people who can afford Teslas)

There are the front stabilisers that allow working in front of the cab. The SWL is 2500kg @ 15 meters when they are deployed.
You can just see the bottom of the rams either side of the number plate, they fit into the feet you can see on the drivers side stabiliser.
