Well, it gets delivered on Tuesday so that's when the rain will start.

The salesman was very confused that I didn't have a private plate to put on it.

For all you that have had EV or Hyrbrids, what is the best way to get a charger fitted outside.

I looked on google and there seems to be a lot.

The dealer you're buying the car from should be able to recommend an installer, and might also be able to secure a cheaper rate that way too.

Failing that, just look online for EV chargepoint installers - but it's a pretty basic electrical installation, so I expect any decent sparky would be able to do it, meaning you can just buy the unit separately and have a local guy fit it if needed.

Just make sure you get one that's compatible with your car, and (if you think you're going to stick with electric) think about buying one that is more "future-proof", e.g. one that supports multiple charging standards, or makes it easy to swap out the cable/connectors.

I wouldn't bother for a hybrid, you won't get it subsidised and the battery is not big enough to even need a dedicated power supply. An external socket or just a wire trailing out somewhere will work fine.

My car is in for service and MOT today. The garage have just rang to tell me that it has failed MOT on a broken spring. ?:|

(I actually laughed down the phone when she said it)
