Comment on Eight things about electric cars by Robert Sharpe http://awakey.com/2014/04/13/eight-things-about-electric-cars/#comment-12047 Sun, 28 Aug 2016 21:21:25 +0000 http://awakey.baldr.dotfriendly.com/?p=1618#comment-12047 Hi Amy,

Thanks a lot for the summary.

In order to promote electric vehicles, I always ask before booking if a location has a charge point so at least they know there is demand, even if an adhock approach is finally used.

Anyway, I will keep you informed of progress.

Regards,
Rob

We did take the Leaf on this one. At the time of our visit, the charging network wasn’t great in the area, meaning we had to double back a bit on our route back just to charge enough to make it to the next charging point! We went back to Hoburne Naish again this Easter and took our petrol care for convenience – the lack of charging points impacted our travel choices.

When we did take the Leaf, we ran a charging cable from the car, through the window of the lodge and into a regular plug socket to charge. Doable, but a faff. Having an actual charging point (or two) at Hoburne Naish would make things much simpler and would encourage us to use the Leaf on such journeys in the future. The availability of charging points is definitely something we look into more and more when planning holidays now. I think it’d be silly for Hoburne Naish NOT to invest in one – a slow charger would only be around £200 to install, so they could easily install two and see how it goes.

I hope this helps your cause!

Best wishes,

Amy

Just out of curiosity did you use it to go on your holiday at Hoburne Naish?
If not, would you have if there was a charge point there?
Do you now select holiday sites with charge points?

We have chalet there and I have been trying to encourage the site to install a proper charge point and looking for people that would have used it.

Try this link on Ebay 🙂

They have loads of different colour options, they go up to a decent size so will hopefully work for the stag doo, plus they come with the pom poms too!
