Hi guys,

I know Jonathan, he is a good guy, I've bought an i-miev from a contact of his before. I just like doing it myself !

I had actually chatted with Jonathan about this Soul, he said he thought it would go for around £9,500 at auction with the mileage it had, and the guy at the desk was quoting me £12k !

Might wait until something interesting comes up at the Aston Barclay near me, then I can bid on it directly. I'm not desperate for a new car but currently drive a Zoe 22kwh, about 80-90 miles range and would like more miles in the tank. The Zoe I bought broken as salvage (would not charge) so its hard to spend big money on a car when that cost me not a lot !

Cheers,

Gary.

The Soul won't do that many more miles than the Zoe 22. Early 27kWh are 75-80 in the winter and about 110 in the summer which isn't that far off the Zoe I don't think. Build is better. It does rapid charge well though so if you don't mind stopping every 50-60 miles for 20 odd minutes (then another 15 mins if you need 90+%) then it should work.

The 30kWh Souls (2016 on) are a bit better still and rapid straight to 92% ish. The extra bit of battery and better rapid charging limits make that one far more flexible.

Yeah this one was the later variety with 30Kwh usable. The Soul doesnt look very aerodynamic but having 30kwh usable instead of 22kwh is better.

Cheers
