I've been out walking a lot in the last few weeks - mental health and all that. Anyway, I started spotting some of the EVs that are in my area.  
There are too many Teslas to count to be perfectly honest, and lots of i3s as well, but the thing that has interested me is the number of new EVs with the green EV plates, and from an increasingly diverse range of manufacturers.  

I've posted a few photos of the ones I've spied in the last 3 walks for your viewing pleasure.  
I've also seen a black Honda-e today but wasn't able to bag a photo, yet!

I used to have an I-Spy book of cars, many, many years ago, and would tick off models as seen. But this is a new  approach, no doubt with a phone camera. Are there loads of chargers to be seen?

Im yet to see a Polestar in the wild. Teslas are common round my way, as are MG EVs.

Im very very close to ordering an iD4 but not yet seen one of those in the wild either...

Yeah I used to do those I-Spy books as well, that's what I was thinking of with this thread  angel

My local council has deployed quite a lot of Ubitricity chargers in quite a few side-streets which I see in use quite often (not least by myself), and on my meanderings I've now come across 4 Source London "zones" - which are basically always empty because their pricing is insane (they charge by time not by kWh).
Then there are a couple of TfL-funded 50kW chargers on the A316/A205, none of which I can use as the bays are designed for cars with front-end charging (the MG in my photos is at one of them).

I've seen a couple of Honda-e  zipping around - a white one and a black one, but haven't managed to snap one yet.  I'm just pleased to see a widening range of BEVs on the road that aren't just Leafs and Teslas. Although there are an amusingly high number of the latter now.

I thought the ID4 has some software issues to resolve yet so may be worth holding off for a little longer....

The iD4 isn't actually "out" yet although it is available to order, with deliveries starting in March.

VW was infamously having software problems with the iD3, but that's out and plenty of them buzzing around, and I think they now have OTA updates, plus I'm sure the iD4 will have exactly the same software as the iD3.

Two interesting spots today.

One is a rarity from an era of range extending hybrids.

The other is a brand spanking new Mercedes Van / 7 seater people mover - the EQV.
