    Just wondering how much of a rarity 60 kWh my car is over here in the UK.

    On the other forums it seems everyone has gone for the 85 (or P85). So I thought I'd put up a poll... (UK OWNERS ONLY PLEASE)

    As I write, I noticed that this post has been read 279 times, however only 2+12+4 have actually submitted votes. I wonder why there has been such a low response from forum members to this simple question?

    Perhaps many are in the US and not the UK, such as in my situation. I have an 85kwh but didn't vote just because I am not in the UK. Also the title says "Am I Alone?" and not "Am I Alone In The UK?"

    Maybe garner more UK interest and less from other countries?

    Maybe make the thread title a little more obvious, like "Do I have the only S60 in the UK?"

    Agreed, the title of the thread is ambiguous?

    The obvious answer is "No, here are 7 billion other humans on the planet."

    But that is not the answer you are looking for.

    smac I know you posted in the UK section of TMC but it shows up in the 'What's New' section, so you are getting eyeballs from Tesla owners all over the world.

    AFAIK you can't change the title - but you can edit your original post to specify if your poll is for UK only or otherwise.

    FYI I haven't answered the poll since I am in the US, and figure a UK-only poll maybe more useful for you.

    As suggested I have added a UK ONLY the post. Can't seem to edit the poll title either :(

    Ultimately it's never going to be a complete survey anyway. But it is looking like I'm in the minority :), if the limited sample size is correct, then 7% is broadly in line with the US according to what I can figure out from the 'Net.

    Over here we can check DVLA (our government registration body), but their data doesn't differentiate model variants. The only other way to know for sure is to ask Tesla but they aren't keen on giving out exact sales numbers.

    TBH I would have expected a slightly higher 60 take up here, our average commutes are shorter, and ultimately being a smaller country things are closer together :)
