Had me wondering there Neil.
I thought it looked more like a pile of scrap that used to be a bus.
Shame about the Fluence.

Scads of them today, had to go to the hospital in Durham again and there was a Zoe, an etron and two Mercedes being charged, plus a model 3 and two Leafs.
Three more model 3s on the A167, also another couple of Leafs and what looked like a Toyota electric.
And that was just the ones I actually spotted.
Tried to take a photo of the line of cars charging but the phone wasn't having it.

Pity you hadn't picked up that Zoe a few weeks earlier... :lol:

I fill the petrol tank in the Xantia maybe 3 times a year as it gets driven so little, and of course just plug the Leaf in on the driveway. So apart from seeing it on the news and social media I'm fairly oblivious to the panic petrol buying as it doesn't directly affect me.

The Zoe deal is getting to be a bit of a drag, got the battery lease forms to sign yesterday just two signatures needed along with twelve pages of small print. :roll:
Lot's of interesting stuff in there but it gives me a headache.

I have put a response up here Gibbo on the "Used Renault Zoe-Can a case be made to buy one" :?: thread, to keep useful info about buying a Zoe in an easily findable thread for anyone else looking.

Got a bit of a surprise to seel this little chap on a 21 plate. One of the 3 VW Group's babies, but the one which got production throttled back then the full axe, presumably because it was the cheapest an people might actually buy them instead of the pricier other two.

Auto Express (Sept 2020): No small Skoda electric Cars after Citigo-e-IV axed

As one motoring journalist put it
https://www.carwow.co.uk/skoda/citigo-e-iv
"Under the skin, the Skoda Citigo e electric car is almost exactly the same as the SEAT Mii Electric and the VW e-UP – a bit like Asda, Tesco and Sainsbury’s custard creams. The difference being that all its mechanical bits and bobs are packaged up in a slightly different wrapper to help you tell them apart."
Spot one and then there is another....residual orders being fulfilled.

Tesla 3.
At a local school I passed on my government mandated walk to the shops in the next village, for stuff forgotten on yesterday's excursion.

I suspect that I keep seeing this in this area.
If only I could remember registration numbers. Mine included.

Vauxhall Corsa e in black.....they really do need the green stripe or they just anonymously pass by unnoticed.

Noticed also that a KIA dealership, has also squeezed in the less important Stellantis brands Citroen, Peugeot and Vauxhall on their premises. There is also a long established Vauxhall dealer within 200 yards.

So they will try to sell the Peugeot e-208 in one corner and the Vauxhall Corsa-e in another the badge engineered twins. The Peugeot e-2008 and the Vauxhall Mokka-e another pair of badge engineered twins.

Dont think Stellantis have quite got the synergies right in that square kilometre of Northumberland.

Another lazy out of the window shot.

Couldn't get it all in as the camera wanted to focus on the bloody tree. Will have to get my little axe out.
There is a focus lock on it but only a contortionist can operate that.
