One-pedal driving is one of the best things about BEVs. It gets to the point where if you actually have to press the friction brake pedal at any point it feels like a failure!

Eer, so, well, I, um, got caught speeding in the first month of ownership...  got offered a speed awareness course though - which actually I have to say was very interesting, educational and I got a lot out of it.  But yes, the temptation to bury the throttle just for a laugh is ever present. I usually allow myself one Tesla Launch per journey...

I love B mode, hardly need to ever touch the brakes, and the always available torque makes for such relaxed driving. Watch your speed though, I'm no boy racer these days, but the ease of power combined with quiet driving means 30mph sneaks up on you. If that's what 80kW does, I'm surprised Dan still has a licence with 330kW!

The Boss loves the car. Its a lot like our cvt Cubic to drive so no transition to be made. She's a bit speedy though and expects a ticket soon,  police

I have a U shaped hose extension and routinely wash out the rear arches of all our cars. There was a lot of crud in there today. Next week i'll steam clean the whole underside then black waxoyl the arches and underside. A messy job but lasts for years.

That's 3 weeks in with Black Betty. Just under a thousand miles and apart from the E charge annual card for 20, it has been no cost to us, I repeat, no cost for a thousand miles..... Enjoyed the heated steering wheel experience, totally fallen for the zen'd out 47 mph cruise control with Bob Marley greatest hits playing. I even enjoy charging as it allows me to have a better focus on how the miles crank up.

Messing about on the net this morn before engaging in daily work scope and it turns out that our previous cars co2 output is more than myself and swmbo's body weights per 1,000 miles in comparison to Betty. I mention this not to crow, I am simply getting my head around where we are with our systems and investments with regard to our co2 production thru lifestyle.
New territory dead ahead Captain! Smiley

Our ickle Leaf should be classed as a gateway drug. We've now had a visitor who kindly came round just to help us check that our driveway, and especially the gravel bit, would fit a larger car, with enough room to twist around the pillars, and it does. Yeah!

Organising a test drive in Bristol first, had to hold off due to Welsh travel restrictions and a bloody awful man-flu the last two weeks (C19 test came back negative). Then aiming to order for September for a 70 plate to match my birth year, and a 50th birthday excuse for spending way too much on a car. At least that's the plan.

Cheers Dan, there will be 1,000 miles coming your way ...... eventually.
