Having recently said Id only seen 2 EQCs in 6 months, today I saw not one but 2!

More exciting, I also saw another VW iD3, and, wait for it

A Polestar 2!

EVs are certainly popping up more and more now.

Popped to my local PodPoint this morning for some electrons and got the chance to see an iD3 up close.
Its a superb looking machine.  Have to say VW have done a great job.  The owner wasnt around or Id have had a geeky chat about it!

Just went back to pick my car up and the iD3 had been joined by an e-Golf.
Interesting to compare the two side by side

Had a look at the ID 3 recently ourselves, (early model) at the dealership.

The screen location & size was the wifes biggest gripe that led her to voice concern about the tesla one (but the difference in size was very apparant) ..but its the price of a 3, & although it has a ski hatch was deemed a bit naff (bad salesmen who make "jokes" about the leafs range was a major dampener, I had to tell him to "Jeff off" & learn something other than BS.

 Its fast becoming apparant that Tesla is the only company that stands a chance of getting pertinent EV info from.
(can't imagine why).
