£100k for a car. But clearly no sense at all.

    This was what I found as I came to charge the other day.

    Mental.

    A two bay take down.

    Luckily the other two were free.. or I probably would not have seen the funny side.

    Where do you think they sent the idle charges

    They have sense. They're just being an arsehole.

    Did you try to remove the plug?

    I assume the plug was not locked to this genius's car, and could be used by someone with an actual Tesla ?

    I must admit that curiosity got the better of me and I gave it a gentle pull to see if it was locked (with the intention to return it to the second bay it was taking up.) but it was locked.

    Reverse up to the left hand charger at right angles to the knobhead. You can then plug in and the big bonus - you block him in until you return and then you can educate him.

    No, it doesn't work. Also, who in their right mind plugs in and walks away without checking that you are charging. Unless of course your only aim is to block a charger for a legitimate person?

    Wow. Bet Land Rover are proud to have that imbecile as a customer.

    You should send pic that to JLR and see what response you get, if any especially as they now sell iPace.

    I came across this pathetic jerk and emailed Porsche, guess what they could even be bothered to answer. For all they knew I might have owned a Porsche as well ( I don't because that's VAG stuff and I won't touch any of their product due to the diesel lies and deceit ever again)

    It's possible the RangeRover driver in the first photo was merely incompetent rather than inconsiderate. If this was a Tesla destination charger rather than a supercharger, then what they did would have been reasonable - and that subtlety is probably lost on the average person. Not realising that the car isn't charging is a bit foolish, but again in a PHEV it's not nearly as critical to check as it is in a BEV.

    The Porsche driver in @thegruf 's photo is just a plonker however.

    Just curious, in the case of LR could it have been charged by the Tesla SC?

    I was Ice’d by these nice chaps at a supercharger in northern france last week. Although they took 6 stalls between them, I wasn’t about to ask them to move...!
