Seen as though we seem to have a few fellow Dee-Dars and Tykes and people from Rotherham and Donny, thought it would be good to have a seperate thread rather than us take over other threads…
And If anyone is up for it an informal meetup for coffee and cake at Fox Valley where there are 6 yes 6 InstaVolts… Then im sure we can arrange somat.
To kick it off im Hoyland but and born and bred Sheffielder, and have noticed a fair few Leafs and Tesla’s around, and we seem to have a good variety of chargers around the area from InstaVolt’s, Pod Points, and some Genie Points as well…
Yes I am a member of the Yorks EV group also Hail originally from Sunderland, moved here in 2005 and was married to a local lass in early 90’s from my army days so a much longer connection to the area before moving here. Been into EV’s now for around 11years with our first car being a Leaf. Had - Leaf 24kw, Zoe 22kw, Merc B-Class EV and currently a 38kW Ioniq and Kona.
Currently in the Kona but took the plunge to try out the ID3 from 7th October! Must admit been pretty impressed with the Kona having done over 2000miles in last 3 weeks! Will be interesting to see how good, or not, the ID3 compares in day to day use.
Mind after seeing the Audi on the Onto stand at fully charged in corporate colour wrap I’d be happy trying that, our lass loved it!
See you all at Elsecar event if you attend, maybe we need an onto parking are set aside lol
I am pretty tight but also to be fair with ONTO we have the “free” charging option, well inc in plan and its hard to justify spending any money on charging when I can get a charge without dipping into my own pocket (more than the sub cost that is)
Ive tried a couple of times, Cottonwood Morrisons, and ended up with £20 pre auth for a week and no charge (the app wouldn’t play ball) and IKEA Sheffield double CCS chargers that don’t currently support double charging so left it waiting for power but again came back with no charge
I may charge at home one day if I change my energy supplier sometime but I have a routine that works for me currently on public chargers.
