VW id4 in White. 71 Plate with Green Stripe.

Had a brief chat with the young lady who was an NHS worker, making a house call. She loves the car, got the one she wanted with the NHS salary sacrifice scheme run by NHS fleet solutions the biggest of them all.

Any employer can do it, and its the cheapest way to acquire a new electric car. This little used thread disappearing down the view list into obscurity was set up to inform anyone interested, and maybe even to gather some responses from members who run their cars under a salary sacrifice scheme. Click and contribute if you can.
Meanwhile in this more popular thread here is a simple 4 minute video of the NHS scheme as an example.

Yes...watch out for the Smart Electric Drive

Yes and bang on topic for the French Car Forum....its a French Car! Fair enough its parents are Daimler AG with a little swiss swatch in it, but it is built in Hambach, which is very German Sounding but which is in the Moselle region of France. The complex is nicely named Smartville

The only electric car to have a TV Advert in the middle of Grand Designs tonight

Now I now a lot of you are going to fall about laughing but I considered a S Cargo as a Day Van after seeing pictures like this.

As a result I often click on anything S Cargo.

Something that may be useful to know is that some Marston's Pubs have charging points. I was at one in Wokingham today (site survey for an Amazon locker) when this turned up.
