I’m also staying with Onto until August 2022 and continue driving the fun e-208 GT. I was planning to stay thereafter but I also want to expand my online design agency and I can’t do that if the e-208 GT won’t be driven more than 100 miles per month. More on that below.
From Sept 2022 onwards, I’m either leasing or purchasing outright a Vauxhall E Vivaro van 75kwh (205 miles range) and converting it into a ‘mobile design office’ to make it easier for offline businesses to access my E-commerce design and development services. Parking outside retailers (literally) and working with them directly to convert their offline shop online. No faffing about with emails back and forth, especially when it comes to large design files and product images. Something like ‘website in a day’ as I use Webflow Ecommerce as my main tool, and there will also be a mini photo booth in the van to take photos of their products and upload it online straight away. This is something I’ve been doing remotely since 2011 (Webflow started in 2014, I was using WordPress and WooCommerce prior to that).
Obviously, it would’ve been convenient if Onto offered an electric van with all the current benefits included but it’s better to have full control of what I can and cannot do, sticking to a fixed price from start to end
I’m a National Trust member so I’m going to use up all my rolled over mileage to visit as many scenic places around in the UK until August. Some NT parks have electric chargers which is very convenient! 50kwh swarco charger in Mersham, charge with a view of surrey!
5 years ago I would’ve said my dream is to own a Porsche Taycan, however, times change and lately I’ve been seeing classic car conversions to EV as the forefront and in high demand, this is something I’d love to dab in to and create a collection for future-proofing vintage cars, either for sale or to keep as an investment. This passion for EV definitely started with Onto.
Wouldn’t it be amazing to see a classic EV car available with Onto some day
