It turns out my Renault ZOE is no longer the only one in my local area, around Northampton. An almost identical but newer Dynamique Intens has turned up, and I’ve seen it in Northampton and nearby Wellingborough. It’s even the same Energy Blue colour. I’m embarrassed to say I can always tell which one is mine, it’s the dirtiest one!
While catching a charge recently at the Renault dealership in Bletchley I spotted a ZOE with the rather neat registration number of “EV13 ZOE” (where, of course, EV is ‘Electric Vehicle’).
Meanwhile I saw the first BMW i3 in my home town of Northampton recently. It was just sitting outside the local shopping centre/health centre looking entirely at home. For sure it will be the first of many.
