I reckon every man and his dog has called their EV Evie but there you go its a popular name !.
We have been living with Evie for nearly a week now having picked her up last Saturday and today being Thursday PM I thought an update was on the cards. All has gone well apart from struggling with the Carwings program. I thought we could set a time to switch the heated seats on etc but it appears we can only control the Air conditioning to come on for a timed period. I will investigate this further. I have finally managed to get logged into the leaf forum web site, had to use a PC to do this as it doesn’t like my Android Samsung Tablet one little bit. I’ve put up a few comments on there so hopefully some feedback will be coming my way shortly.
Mrs B has been using the car for a few days doing her run to work and today I got a chance in it going to a Chamber of Commerce meeting this morning (Huddersfield) A few members know I’m going ‘EV’ and I was inundated by queries, hence this blog site !. Every single person has the same query …..whats the range. What can I say, we have to wrap our driving plans around our EV’s unlike the ICE drivers who can pick and choose and also pay £90.00 a fill up whilst we plug into ecoctricity’s fast chargers for free !. You pays your money and makes your choice. As a confirmed almost rabid reducer of carbon footprints my own business (www.portelav.co.uk) is all about getting business folk to work from home some of the time so now when I have to drive off to a customers premises at least some of the time its in an EV fueled by green energy.
