  1. I have no idea what we will all be using to make our vehicles move in 10 years time but would guess there going to be several other options by then. We aren’t totally green, but this suits me for a daily drive, I can charge at work if I so choose and will allow us to travel to our friends who live some 70 miles away (roughly) and back home without having to take a top up charge. We don’t really need more than that and have options for more challenging journeys until those clever folk who do, develope better ranges. Interestingly I was reading today about an HGV that can do 683 miles on one charge.
  2. Thanks for sharing Chas, good to see some great cars! Hope you are both well, you clearly care more for your car then Michael 😂
  3. Committee, after much discussion, have taken the unusual decision to defer the 2021 AGM until 15th January 2022. At the time we needed to book a venue for this there wasn’t much certainty regarding gatherings and it was decided to allow a couple of extra months for everything to recover. If you have any questions or concerns about this please direct a PM to either myself or JeffW the Club’s chairman. Thank you all for your patience and we look forward to seeing you all in January 2022 Sarah AKA Chilli Red
  4. We considered a few but not the nissan to be honest Loved the GLA and when we realised this was similar but slightly bigger our minds were made up.
  5. The Zed is going to appear at a few shows next year, we promise
  6. Oh no! Some people are such a***s! Hope it’s not too costly, glad you managed to polish the cover up
  7. and just to prove we still have her ….. the Chilli Red and his lordships bum 😂
  8. It’s not going to be to everyone’s taste but we have now had our new car for just over a week and are really please with it. The official line is that the range is 265 miles and the salesman has told us to expect that to be 220 if we don’t ‘drive like a nun’. At the moment we have actually been getting a better range than expect at 277 miles, but I’m sure that will drop as we start to use the heating in the winter moments. I am averaging 3.7 mph Wh. It comes with two leads, a three pin which plugs into any house plug and a standard charge lead for my home PodPoint. On my home PodPoint charger point it can charge from 10% battery to 100% in 8 hours. On a three pin plug it takes considerably longer. The charge from empty to full costs about £8. Most supermarkets offer you free charges which aren’t quick but if I’m shopping for an hour I can get about 45 miles of charge in which for free, i’m not complaining. We plugged into a rapid charge in Cobham services yesturday just to see what 20 minutes of charge would give us in range and we got 100 miles. These points are obviously charged at a rate higher than a home charge, but still nothing like fuel costs. The charge points are something to get your head round but once you’ve worked out the app you need for the charger you’re fine, some are tap and go so dead easy to use. Its a nice looking car, slightly larger than the GLA that we PXd it for. It handles well and has all the whistles and bells I need and enjoy including voice controls and cameras. Many will panic at the range, but honestly, how often do you drive out further than 100 miles? Realistically for us, not often and for those drives if we don’t want to factor in stopping to recharge, then we go in something else. I know many of you will hate it but we are loving it and as my daily drive, it’s perfect. Ill add some pictures in a bit.
  9. Sorry, every time I read the start line of the posts all I can hear is...... 'Scott's home early...' little things amuse me. 🤣 Scott, please try posting in the Go Japan thread now, we hope you should be OK to post there now
  10. Hi Scott, welcome to the OC. Yes Neil has been promising your arrival. Glad you found us. Beautiful car 🥰 hope to meet you properly soon Sarah
