  1. General EV Discussion
    We are on the first proper full day of our 10 day holiday in Slovenia and while my son practices his gymnastics I thought I’d report on the trip. We have a 2017 Niro PHEV with 65,000 miles on the clock. I’d had to get a few LEZ stickers for France and Germany as well as apply for one for Ghent...
  2. General EV Discussion
    Thought I would share some observations from my first road trip, which while only 700km each way had some complications and the added stress of a toddler onboard. All these points have probably been discussed to death but still it might prove handy to someone else. Let me preface this by saying...
  3. Tesla Model Y
    Hi folks, I'm considering using Turo to hire a Model Y for 24 days for a US road trip. Can 4 people with 4 x 23kg suit cases and 4 x 12kg bags road trip comfortably for nearly a month? I've never seen a Model Y in the metal. Thanks in advance for your advice.
  4. Kia Niro
    I just finished a trip from Toulouse, Frans to Utrecht, The Netherlands. 1200 km and 17 hour drive. Temperatures ranging between -4 and 5 degrees. kia e-Niro 64 kWh, MY2021, no heat pump. The rithm was 2 hours blazing on the highway, 30-50 minutes charging from 5-75 percent. Here are my take...

    I know how the idea of travelling right now seems to some, but I'm looking at my collection of charge apps and realising that I have absolutely no confidence in my little 22 kWh Zoe to drive outside of the UK. Which is a shame, because this car is much more enjoyable to drive than my old VW up...

    Alright, was looking at driving my MG ZS to Belgium and back in September/october time hopefully (Covid dependant) and was wondering if anyone had any experience in doing this? I tried using zap map to plan the route but it only works in the UK, does anyone know of a European alternative. Also...
  7. General Nissan EV Discussion
    I’ve owned a new 62 kwh Leaf+ for nearly two months and just returned from a successful long road trip (family holiday). Because of battery gate I wonder if the Leaf is a bit unfairly maligned in some quarters regarding rapid charging, so thought I might report on my experience to offer a...
  8. Second Gen Nissan LEAF (LEAF40 & LEAF62)
    My PCP is coming to an end soon for my 30kwh black edition leaf. We often have family holidays to Cornwall and Scotland which is ~380miles. We are looking at getting the #Leaf40 but we are worried about the #rapidgate issues with the car. Has any attempted a similar distance in the car and be...

    Hi. I'm looking for a list of free rapid chargers, does such a list exist? I'm planning a trip from Falkirk to Whitehaven and back but hoping to do it for free! I know there are a couple of free rapid chargers in Falkirk itself (Falkirk Stadium and Grahamston Station) so I'm OK that end, but...
  10. Tesla Model S
    In July we rented a Model S 70D and drove 1700km through Austria, Germany and Switzerland. I made a video about it in 2 parts and both are now online. Part 1 is 33 minutes and includes our visit to Heidelberg, Germany: Part 2 is about the same length and includes the Mount Pilatus cog...

    So another road trip but this time in a Kia Soul. She's doing 2,580 miles. But will it help change peoples thoughts about range anxiety? I know you got [Kia] Soul | EV Performance
