Exact same car but with alloy wheels. Was happy with steel wheels as trim are better these days, but the dealer in Swansea had it in stock. It is the city model which got relabelled life. Anderson A2 wallpoint installed this week.

Nice, I wasnt sure about the wheels at first but as my youngest said "when we get bored we can buy new covers and change the look".

I like the look of those andersons but sadly they were not available on the deal i got through my energy company.

How are you finding the car and the range? what are you getting real world? i have been unable to test drive a 52kwh.

I also quite liked the black wheel trims, they actually look very good and was slightly disappointed to have the alloys. Sales guy looked puzzled but if you damage alloys that can work out expensive compared to new wheel trims.
