@richardaucock @WattsUp @GRIDSERVE_HQ As per article we’d also give single Gridserve 60kW chargers on motorways a wide berth
Even when working and unoccupied they’re too slow for modern EVs if you want to charge a battery bigger than a duracell bunny & can be even slower when charging both bays. Stick to their hubs👍
@richardaucock We’d recommend @WattsUp
Only shows DC chargers and the map icons let you see the network
There isn’t much between MK and Rugby moto services until, a new @GRIDSERVE_HQ hub near Northampton arrives but even a Honda e should manage that
@zap_map @fairchargeuk We agree average charging costs over the year will still usually be lower for EV drivers
But with petrol & diesel prices falling again, on trips requiring DC charging all the major networks in band D or E cost substantially more than fuelling an equivalent size petrol or diesel
Over the last 2 years petrol prices have risen by 17%, diesel by 31% while 🇬🇧 DC charging network prices rose by…68.2%
Average prices are now68 excluding Tesla Superchargers. We calculate charging parity with petrol per kWh to be 54p & 64p for diesel
Now for our efficiency award!
We were looking for a car with the lowest cost per mile, based on the results of our #TrueMPG and Real Range tests.
Our winner is an #electriccar that comes in at an astonishingly low 8.5 pence per miles.
It's the @Tesla Model 3!
Our next award is Electric SUV of the Year sponsored by @myenergiuk⚡️
It’s related to last year’s overall Car of the Year, but improves on it in key areas; most notably comfort, interior quality and infotainment.
It's the @Genesis_Europe GV60!
Now for the What Car? Safety Award held in association with @ThatchamRsrch.
Our winner has the highest ever @EuroNCAP safety rating for both adult occupant protection and safety assistance technology.
It’s the @Tesla Model Y!
Our final category before we reveal the Car of the Year is best #performancecar.
It’s poised and practical, so you’ll love living with it, whether you’re on a dream road or just ferrying the kids to school.
The award goes to the @PorscheGB Taycan Cross Turismo!
Yesterday, we revealed the winners of our annual #WhatCarAwards, and crowned the @UKVolkswagen ID Buzz as our overall Car of the Year! 🏆

The #Tesla price cuts today are great news for #EV sales in the UK in 2023
With Tesla Model 3 now available in volume from under £43k & Model Y under £45k other brands will need to adjust their prices soon, as we wrote on the 5th Jan
X hits the spot?
We’ve always liked the Citroen e-C4
It’s not quick, range is average but it charges 10-80% in a quick 30mins
So why like it? Well it’s good EV value, refined & rides like a luxury limo-that’s rare
Now for the same price as the hatch, the X adds a BIG 520L boot
Comfortable, practical and refined ⚡️ The new e-C4 X fastback is everything you'd expect a modern @CitroenUK to be 👉 http://drivelec.uk/3IJeNwe
We think Tesla are likely to reduce prices of most Model 3 and Model Y #EV s
Why? More supply from their Shanghai factory by March and UK prices are currently well above average cost in other countries
In the meantime you can save £3k or more buying a car from inventory not order
@NicholasHellen @EmilyKerr36 @Zipcar @hiyacar @allpartycycling Good luck but if you do return to the dark side, we have some excellent suggestions
Would be interested to see how easy it is to get electric cars on short term/ car club hires
Some car clubs are still remarkably backward about switching from smoky pistons💨to EVs⚡️in urban areas
