2 red, 1 black, only realised they were 'Mustangs' due to the badge. Not sure why they call it a 'Mach' as that's a performance thing imo. Plus their about the same size as my C8, very sporty.....

Craply parked VW id4. Live 100 yards from me but in the next street. have seen it from a distance and just took it for another ugly suv but a detour showed it to be of the electric persuasion.

There's also an MG ugly in the street but always reverse parked up to the wall so impossible to identify, may be electric. I should look the reg up and find out.

Plenty on the road spots, the one that caught my eye most was a bright yellow peugeot. Wonder if it was an e-208
as opposed to an e-2008.

There are boats out there with wind turbines as well, but the downside is the noise the turbine can make. Friends of Mum bought one, installed it properly, and within a few days took the blades off whenever they were on the boat. The noise it made in even a mild breeze was enough to affect their sleep.

Maybe we are not too far away from silent zero emission power for boats!:

Years ago (over a decade ago, actually) I was with my Mum on her narrowboat in the Birmingham Canal System, near to one of the University campuses, when we saw a narrowboat that was owned by the University. What was unusual about it was that it was a development boat for the Hydrogen Fuel Cells. I don't have any pictures of it though.
