Bullet has been bit… After a lot of trailing, testing and infrastructure instillation we have the first EV (Snowdonia)

this city car is not quite in the city! we grow the fuel for it on the farm (PV and small hydro)

This city car is not quite in the city! We grow the fuel for it on the farm (PV and small hydro) we will let you know how it goes!

This morning and it was Snowdon again with our esteemed colleagues from up North or some of the general managers from the Lake District to give them their official title. I was there to talk renewables… but The Snowdonia property have just taken delivery of their new and perfectly formed Volkswagen E-UP (not sure if there is a Yorkshire connection?) The brand new Electric Vehicle is there to move people around the property. Gone is the small and unreliable diesel van and here is a vision in black. Silent, efficient and cool! (not like me on any points) We now have 36 EV charge points thanks to Zero Carbon Uk around our properties in Wales (quite a few more planned). This i hope is the start of the shift. The car will be used as a hub vehicle to move people to the tip of Llyn or across to Ysbyty Ifan and down to Merionethshire.

Range, power and charging. Not quite revs, fuel and oil pressure. New
