I am having a bit of a wobble over whether I want to wait 6 months or so for my new car. I am testing the e-Niro on Wednesday but we have already had a look at the Kona and we liked it. The issue is that I can have a Kona now and I … Continue reading Can’t Decide!
Top Photo: By Alexander Migl – Own work, CC BY-SA 4.0, Link Today we visited a Kia dealer to look at the e-Niro and the Soul EV. Surprisingly, we loved the e-Niro more than the Kona. It is more sober inside and it felt more us. The Soul EV was nice in the front but … Continue reading Perhaps the E-Niro?
Top Image : Hyundai Kona : By Kevauto – Own work, CC BY-SA 4.0, Link Back in 2010 I got my first Electric Car – a Nissan Leaf. I was the first to get a Leaf in the South-West of the UK. I was the launch customer for Exeter Nissan (JFE) and I was excited. … Continue reading Time To Get Another EV?
We will be moving house at the end of august (again!) and this will mark a significant milestone in my life… it is the first house bought jointly with my lovely wife Tracy. For the past 10 or so years electric cars have been part of my life but when Sally passed away I needed … Continue reading Our Next EV – Perhaps?
As many of you know, I have been an electric vehicle (EV) fan and advocate since 2010. I was the launch customer for the Nissan Leaf in the South-West of the UK and since then I have had a 30kWh Leaf as well as 2 (yes you read it right!) Vauxhall Amperas. Alongside that, I … Continue reading Electric Cars – Painfully Slow Progress
Back in 2010, there was I, minding my own business (literally!), when I read about something revolutionary that came to change my life forever. It has cost me thousands of pounds in buying new stuff. It has also cost me my sanity when discussing it with other like affected souls. It has cost me my … Continue reading There Be Devils In Them Woods!
For obvious reasons I have been pretty quiet on the blogging front since Sally died. It has been, and still is, a difficult time for me. Sally was my life for 22 years… that love and companionship will never leave me and nor would I ever want it to. But Sally wanted me to make … Continue reading Still Alive and Kicking!
I know I have been rather quiet recently on the blog but it has taken me a little while to get my ducks in a row… I have now made a couple of decisions… Firstly, and perhaps the biggest one of all, is that rather than go back to working as a computer consultant I … Continue reading Progress
We have been in our new house now for about 5 months ( well, I suppose I should stop calling it new!) and during that time I have had only limited power to the garage from the house. This has meant that it wasn’t possible to install a 32A electric car charger until I upgraded … Continue reading Power to the Garage
Considering that the Nissan Leaf is a state-of-the-art (well nearly!) electric car there are some things that are really 1970’s tech and rather let the car down. One of those is the internal courtesy light… you know, the one that comes on when you open the door. It is dim. It is dull. It reeks … Continue reading Nissan Leaf Courtesy Light Upgrade to LED
