Could this why I keep seeing pics largely of Tesla’s at the new chargers from Gridserve at Rugby.
Are my fellow Tesla owners decamping from their 12 new V3 Superchargers because they cost 3p per kWh more? Hopefully not at peak times plse 🙄

Is this crow at Membury services providing an apt metaphor for the future of ⁦@ecotricity⁩ until they signed the ⁦@GRIDSERVE_HQ⁩ deal
If so can someone tell the crow & the orchestra playing the sinister music that it should all be ok now
working chargers are coming😋

Another #EVDaytrip today
London to the fabulous sunny Dinbych-y-Pysgod also known as Tenby
235 miles each way but the car park happened to have a bunch of podpoint chargers . Perfect once I moved the car forward enough to close the boot

Hired myself a model 3 long range for the weekend. This car is amazing in every way and did an 800 mile round trip as effortlessly as my previous ICE cars. Believe the hype @EVision_EVRent @elonmusk @FullyChargedShw

BBC expects @SadiqKhan to be confirmed as @MayorofLondon in the next hour in a tighter race than expected
This means the Mayor will fulfil his vital role in delivering an expanded #ULEZ zone from 25th October 2021
Next we need to ensure all diesel vehicles lose their exemptions

@The_PlugSeeker @au_tom_otive @UswitchUK @EVAEOfficial @EVA_Scotland Golly - I agree with Tom! 👏👏👏 U-Switch

Perhaps next week a comparison of petrol & diesel vehicle brands by average fuel tank size? 😂

Presumably this is the test Mazda & Honda were aiming to win they set their EV battery sizes!

@tarbatness @ElectrifyingCom @GinnyBuckley @Nickishields Have customer deliveries begun in UK yet? Not seen any on the road but looking forward to it

We are delighted to announce that Osprey has been selected by Shell to fund, install and operate the 175kW Shell Recharge network at franchised dealer sites in the UK ⚡️
