So we got the car on Saturday and it’s AWESOME! I don’t want to ever give it back. It’s just so natural and easy to drive and it’s got amazing acceleration, but I didn’t find that out on the first day.
Conor very kindly dropped the car over to us mid morning. I was fully expecting it to arrive completely empty, but it had about ¼ charge. Conor informed me there was about 15km left in the car. Our next journey of the day was a 14km trip to Monkstown. Sure we’ll take the risk!
We managed to get to Monkstown with a couple of bars of charge left and proceeded to find an on street parking spot in Dun Laoghaire…which of course had a petrol car parked in it. Not to worry, we’d try Blackrock, surely two Saturday’s before Christmas that spot would be free, right. When we arrived their was naturally a car parked in the space, but there was a passenger in the car who very kindly informed me the driver would return shortly. He did, and we got our space. Happy days. A cup of coffee and a little Christmas shopping later and we’d plenty of juice to take us to our next destination and home.
I can’t wait for lots more adventures and see how far we can get on a full charge.
