What does Joe Public make of your EV? Do strangers approach you in car parks? Are they interested? Do they always ask the same questions?
I wonder what the questions were when petrol overtook electric 100 years ago...
Probably 'where can you fill it up?'
That's genius, got to tip your hat to them for coming full circle and getting back on topicI've had a couple of conversations when using rapids, and the postman expressed an interest when I first got the car.
My most bizarre one was this past weekend - Jehovah's Witnesses called, and politely accepted my stated lack of belief (that's a bit of an understatement), then turned the conversation to the car and our solar panels. A few minutes into that conversation and they managed a very clever segue back into the bible... I was begrudgingly impressed to be honest (though only for a few minutes before I dismissed them a little more firmly).
That's a good one, I was driving back from Leicester to Manchester and a work colleague who had left an hour before me called me to say the traffic on the M6 was 40mph all the way and would I be alright. He seemed very surprised when I said great I won't need to stop for a quick charge then since I could easily make it the rest of th way home at 40mph.Q - "Ooo, but what happens if you get stuck in a traffic jam?" A- "Nothing. If the car is not going forward then it is not using electricity. I bet if you have a low tank of petrol and get stuck in a jam that's a worry isn't it?"
