I’m in Zone 3 and have taken delivery a month ago of a Tesla y. Am reliant on public chargers. The source ones are good if rather expensive. You can reduce the cost a little by paying a monthly subscription. However there are lamppost chargers that have been installed which are 28p per kWh and...
The official line clearly varies from council to council.
My council Merton advises against running cables from your house but it’s not as strong advice as it was.
I’m in the same position. Terrace house in London. There is a lamppost charger a 5 min walk away with a cluster of electric cars around it! 28p/kWh. Downside is that the spot is permit holders only so can be “iced”.
And it’s Only 4.8kwh charger. I’ve asked the council for more.
Turned it off and down to 1% battery drain / day.
Clearly only ever useful for people whose cars are garaged most of the time and only on for a few hours at a time.
Great idea though, not usable for me.
So I’m in a similar position.
New MYLR, just picked up on Saturday.
Parked on street, have lost 16% over the last 38 hours.
I don’t think the power drain is tenable long term - with no home charger, it’s just too much energy. Will have to take the risk that someone dings it!
The new CarPlay looks amazing. It’s a real shame Tesla aren’t compatible. I’ve tried CarPlay on rental cars before and really hoped my next car would have it, but alas no. Tesla won out despite the lack of CarPlay for me because of boot size and supercharger network. The ioniq 5 does look good!!
My model y is on order with a delivery date a month away. Need to organise insurance.
It’s my first company car. As a small company this will be the only car! Does anyone have any recommendations as to who to use and how to arrange?
MY blue / white / Gemini EAP.
Ordered mid mar.
Edd early May, late May, June, then aug 4- sep15.
Today back to the end of June!!
Half expect it to go to October next…
But just maybe it will come with us on the Eurotunnel this summer!🤞
For me it was the supercharger network that was the clincher.
Wanted an electric with great range and massive luggage so can go camping on our summer holiday.
No off street parking so public charging only.
120 mile round trip to work!
Supercharger near work so can top up. The other bp...
Doesn’t look like you’ve had much of a response.
I don’t know enough about the regs but they are quite specific.
The Tesla charger installation manual has a detailed appendix for Uk regs.
I suspect you wouldn’t get away with doing mounting to wooden wall. Building a small brick wall or a...
