Nissan offer free charging at all their garages, not been able to try as taxi's and driving school cars always seem to be thereHi Folks,
I've just been wondering if MG will consider providing ZS EV owners free charging and how it is that Tesla is able to offer free charging to all Tesla owners while other companies don't?
This Tesla free destination charging has played on my mind a lot this week.
An aquiantance of mine with a Tesla could not believe that I pay for charging my ZS EV. He has never paid for charging for the 12months he has had a Tesla. He just goes to a nearby destination charger once a week for free charging and even when he has to use super rapid chargers on the motorways he does not have to pay till he has done more than 1000 motorway miles in a year.
Charging his car on a basic fast destination charger is also very fast as apparently they all charge at at least 22 kWh.
Well the ZS EV is cheap and one gets a good deal for the price but seems this Tesla destination charging arrangement is something over and above the price of the Tesla and may be all EV manufacturers should consider some free charging offers.
May be that just wishful thinking on my part.
Well Folks what do you think?... For me, this "free charging" bit has really bothered me this week.
Anyway next week l am doing free charging challenge again so got my planner out for Tesco shopping etc. to benefit from the Pod point open chargers. Anyone who would like to join in and try managing a whole week using free public charging or completely solar etc is welcome. Please post your free charging experience, comments and advice in this thread.
@Chrispydoc now that it is high summer it will be interesting if you could update us if you are now able to achieve a whole month's charging solely on solar.
