We don't yet have a pet name for our Ampera, but clearly lots of folks do. So, what's yours called?

We called our Leaf "Charlotte", initially because the voice that comes out of it is very like Charlotte Green's. There were other reasons: I have a very good cycling pal named Charlotte, whose hair at one time matched the red colouring of our car. Another wag off our cycle forum made a derogatory remark about it resembling the cyclist Charlotte because both "thrived on battery power", but he was just being rude.

Mine is called Zoe much to the excitement of my daughter of the same name. Problem is her twin sister now wants the missus to have a car named after her. I'm thinking of renaming her eNV200 combi...

My nieces named my LEAF Casper a year or so because it was white, quiet and friendly to them. Last weekend they saw my Blue Outlander for the first time and decided it looked like a Billy but because it lived up in the hills they named it HillBilly.

I'm afraid mine is the blindingly obvious 'Sparky' :oops:

No names as such, I just refer to the fleet by their registration's last three letters.

So we have:

Oh-em-Dee
Oh-em-Pee
Oh-em-Eee
Oh-em-Ay
...for the LEAFs

then...

Pee-vee-Ex
Pee-vee-Doubleya
Pee-vee-Zed
Ex-aitch-Arr
Bee-en-Jay
...for the i-MiEV's.

Our buggy is called 'Bruce' though, and our departed i-MiEV was called 'Pervy'.
