Smile Hi folks newbie here

Hi Folks fond the forum on Google and thought it would be useful to hear about other owners experiences with the i3 and have others to share ours with.

We ordered our i3 BEV in fluid black with black tinted glass (electric gangster) in October from Sytner Notts and have a preliminary delivery date of Feb 1 2016.

This is the second EV in our household as we have a Vauxhall Ampera that we purchased two years ago and the i3 is to replace our Vauxhall Adam 1.4 petrol.

This is our first experience of a true EV as we decided not to go for the REX version as the Ampera can go anywhere and the i3 will be used for local driving for which we rarely do more than 50 miles per day.

I guess the first bit of anxiety will be collecting the car from Nottingham and driving it back to Grimsby, but we have our Ecotricity card ready for a stop at the motorway services on the way back if we need to. Its 83 miles on A roads and 77 miles via motorway with charge station 42 miles from home.

So not sure if the A road route at this time of year even on eco pro+ will be doable, will hopefully be able to report back on our first journey for anyone who is interested in the New Year.
