    Just because Teslas can (but beware the reputation)

    How NOT to recover a Model 3 Mr AA

    indeed he did hammer some skates under the rear wheels towing on suspension parts i still disagree this whole exercise was unnecessary as the car was not in any danger to other traffic as being pushed into a lay-by by the police who actually knew how to put the car in neutral so they could...

    How NOT to recover a Model 3 Mr AA

    Pod Point removing from app some public (Sainsburys) chargers?

    How much time do you spend in a Supermarket? 30 min? 1 hour? What's a 7kW charger going to do on a Model 3? A drop in the ocean IMHO Even on my 24kWh Leaf it's not really worth the effort to charge for a short time... And be very careful as most of those Supermarket carparks do have a max...
