Francais, you have on another post mentioned you thought the servicing would be cheap as there was very few moving parts.

Think you are going to get a shock on that .. from the maintenance plan prices they have they a even more expensive for servicing than my Hybrid which has both petrol and electrical systems to service.

Yep bessie, did see that a few months back, Shell are having a laugh, as it would cost around 40 to charge a Tesla Model "S" from 10% to 90%, even if paying for Tesla SuperCharger to do the same job, you would be looking at less than a fiver!

Of course the Shell stations are using ChadeMo and CCS type fast chargers, so for your Tesla you will need the Tesla ChadeMo adapter now reduced to 350.

Blueexpo97, don't worry the Tesal infrastructure in the UK is workable now, by 2020 we will be overrun with a Tesla SuperChargers.

Also by then the other EV manufacturers will have gone back to Tesla cap in hand, to beg for forgiveness and open up the Tesla network to all EV's, like VW, Ford, Hyundi, Nissan, Toyota and BMW etc.

Quote from the Tesla website.

Tesla makes charging at home as easy as charging your smartphone. Just plug in overnight and wake up to a full charge


What a total load of garbage, you cannot make this rubbish up. What percentage of the motoring public can actually do this. Naivety at is most extreme.

My son lives in a flat and uses on road parking if he can or a public car park...........Gonna be a piece of p##s for him. Total tosh to make that statement without a HUGE caveat attached.

Ahhhhhh, but wait. I have off road parking for 5 cars, I will have to get rid of the caravan because I wont have anything capable of towing it, so if anyone wants to use my parking, they can plug in for free!

The only cost will be 40 a night to park on my drive. 😀👍

A game changing no brainier for me, 4853 a month 😁😁😁

I may be loving this EV revolution after all. 😀👍😀. Gonna buy me a NEW top of the range Ford Ranger, 3.2ltr Wildtrack pick up truck.

Mike I don�t know what your worrying about your son doesn�t have a Tesla

Look on the bright side if he did have one he could always charge it at yours whilst eating your roast beef on a Sunday afternoon

Or at a shell electric fuel station

What Mike has failed to realise, is that a Tesla is not for the rif raf of this earth!

It's a known fact fact that most Tesla owners live in gated communities, no one can help the fact, that we live in a them and us society.

You won't find a Tesla destination charger, at an Aldi or Lidl, no they are are at Waitrose and M&S, and that's exactly how it should be.

Come on Mike, we all know our place!

So Tesla is indeed aiming at a niche market, not a mainstream one, as I thought.

No Colin thats what they are now, the new car is aimed at bmw 3 series company car drivers, these in turn will filter down as with all company cars.

Plenty BMW drivers at my local Aldi and Lidl. Yeah they might be targeting BMW company car drivers, but you only have them for an average of 3 years then the car is sold on and bought up by us plebs who like the fact that you can pick them up for half the price the first owner paid for it.

Aldi and Lidl arent slow when it comes to businesses and Im sure they will soon have any charger in place for any car on the road. What a good way to draw customers in your store.

The only thing with Aldi and Lidl putting charge points in their car parks is they will then drive the Electricity suppliers out of business by not giving them what it costs them to manufacture the electric ... the way they have done with the dairy farmers and the milk.

Mike .. that's the problem of Aldi becoming popular .. when they first arrived at Durham one of their regular customers used to turn up to do their shopping in a Rolls Royce ..
... none of the riff raff they allow in now 😁
