Yes I would have thought 12k was nearer the average. I do around 9,000 miles a year, but only since I retired. I would have been doing much more than that before as I would have been driving to and from work. Now on many days, especially this time of year, I don't go out at all.

The motor trade use between 10 and 12000 as an average but the official gov figure is 7900.

Check out no 2

Interesting article Bessie. No 2 is a diesel though.

Not surprised that Volvo featured highly, they are very well-built cars, especially the earlier ones. I've heard they are not quite so good today as they once were, but I'm not sure how true that is. My V70 was a great car, and my late neighbour would only ever have Volvos when he was taxi driving. I know he had one that had done over 300,000 miles.

Official government figures are usually absolutely miles out, so this comes as no surprise.

The reason the motor trade use higher figures is so that they can say a vehicle is below average mileage and the purchaser believes it

The car I bought in September is "below average" then, it has done an average of 8.5k a year. So was my Volvo, that had done an average of 9.5k a year over its 18 years until I sold it. I had it half its lifetime so far.

If I remember right I was doing around 12k to 13k a year when I was working.

Yep, some news out today that Tesco are to add fast chargers in there car parks, CCS format it's a deal done with VAG group in readiness for the VW Golf ID cars etc.

It will be free charging so any CCS car welcome, which includes Tesla model 3 of course.

Very savvy of Tesco, as you will be doing some shopping whilst the car is on charge, maybe 30 minutes will add around 200 miles range to your BEV.

Yep, Tesco is not offering free fast charging, just free regular charging which takes ages with a BEV so they are imposing a 3 hour limit, on that basis most users will be paying for fast charging.
But the free thing makes for good media coverage.

Fifth gear tested a Jaguar I pace,which they liked but they stopped for lunch at a place with a charger. One hour put 40 miles on!
I guess that was the regular charge!
In our area there are few charge points, you do see a few Nissan and Renault models,lots of hybrids.Dealers have them obviously.

A guy up the road has a BMW I3 which he plugs in to his garage,he has solar panels on the house but extra ones on the garage which help during day!
Quite a good range on that model aparantly.

Genuine question. Is it feasible to have say, 150 fast charging points at every services?

Not without major and expensive upgrading to the electrical supply system.

No they have said they will be putting charge points in SOME of their car parks, not all of them.

No because more than likely at most services real estate would need to be purchased to accommodate that amount.
Would some of those spaces be extra long for people towing with their Tesla?

XVI yes?

Well LlaniDavis, I did not say that they would be putting the fast chargers in all the Tesco car parks, as Tesco have loads of small stores with only tiny car parks, I think the figure was something like 6,500 charging stalls, I can't be bothered to do the math, but I think you will find that all the stores with a decent size car park, will get at least 4 fast charge stalls each.

It's a great iniative from VW and Tesco, and I am sure other supermarkets will follow the trend, and with the Chargers being CCS, all BEV owners will be able to benifit.

As for Mike3003, the largest number of fast charge stalls at any one location in Europe is 42, that's in Norway were BEV's have really taken of.
150 stalls is easily doable, although I am not sure that you would want that many at the one location.

We import most of our crude oil from Norway,perhaps the uptake of BEVs there allows them to export so much!
