  1. Resale value of old EVs

    General EV Discussion
    I’m planning on taking out a personal loan (much lower APR and monthly repayments than other finance options) to buy a used 30kW Nissan Leaf. However, if it takes 6/7 years to pay off, I will have a 10yr old Leaf at the end of this. Will there be any resale value to EVs by then, with newer...

    Confirmed EV Events and Meetings
    Home of the Energy Storage Hub. The changing generation mix is transforming the way we need our networks to perform. The intermittency of renewables has led to a heightened need for new ways to balance loads. Installing storage is the key to enhanced network flexibility. Learn how to prepare...
  3. Good times to be Scottish despite Brexit, Austerity etc

    Off Topic and Banter
    Really amazed to read this BBC article - Scots 'more optimistic about future' I have felt there is quite a lot of optimism around the country despite all the doom and gloom (thinking Brexit, Austerity, Terror attacks etc, but didn't realise the optimism within the country was apparently so...
  4. I Love my Leaf - But what do I want in 3 years?

    Nissan Leaf40
    My previous thread was about what I like about the Leaf. This one is what I want to see when I replace the car in 3 years. This is the first car I have bought on 3-year PCP, one of the reasons being that I expect the tech to have moved on significantly in 3 years time. Again the aim is not to...

    Ice Breakers

  6. Plugsurfing. Why everyone should sign up.

    General Charging Discussion
    Plugsurfing is a universal app/rfid system to allow you to charge seamlessly across numerous networks. Plugsurfing negotiates with the charging networks and agrees a rate for you to use the chargers. It works already in Europe and most companies have signed up. I know plugsurfing came over to...
  7. One RFID card to rule them all?

    General EV Discussion
    After the Queen made her speech are we to expect a single eV user RFID card that can be registered to any network? I would be one to go for this option after so many smart phone related failures to charge. I'd even pay a small amount to cover the administration and cost of card.
  8. Universal standard EV battery design?... - and a 'fuelcan'?

    General EV Discussion
    Hi, I've just joined the forum. I'm a long standing electric car enthusiast and used to race early 'ev's' in the 80s with the BVS as it was then. I've often wanted to convert a car in the past then recently had a Leaf on lease for a couple of years and finally I'm currently in the process of...
