August 17th, 2015 § Comments Off on So what’s the update with citroen electric car cheeky collection fees? § permalink
As i have recently posted up. Citroen Czero lease has expired, and as so, it’s been inspected and now collected.
But not before “someone” Manheim Collection Services / Citroen attempted to levy inspection and collection charges (ironically listed in DAMAGES section in my inspection report)
I was not certain whether to laugh or cry as this surely is a accidental mistake. Collection/Inspection fees are to no benefit to the customer. not mentioned once anywhere. i checked.
So, like any average person who does not feel like parting with hard earned money just-because-they-said-so, i disagreed with the charges. These notes were clearly made in the final report.
Late last week, however, I received a letter from Citroen, ignoring any of my comments/amends/disagreements prior, and bluntly requesting the full figure, including inspection/collection fees, which alone rounds up to just over £300! » Read the rest of this entry «

There are one or another Service station at every 30 odd mike intervals of not sooner, at London M25 orbital motorway.
Manufacturers should all pitch in (not just Nissan) and invest into rapid and fast charging infrastructure.
This will not mere increase sales or mere few extra car but significantly improve consumer confidence and deal with so called “range anxiety” issue.
Many Electric vehicles ate already used for commutes to work, myself and my colleague for one example 25 and 40 round trip respectively.
Having M25 “electrified” would mean more people would consider moving I favour of electric cars driving into work from further distances. (especially those who work in London and live outside M25)
What do you think?
By all means, share your thoughts and tweet this post.

One snapshot of the casual web search produces the most odd results, citing the mixed attitudes of the global average (English speaking) consumer, in the UK and US.
Some tired and tested the green tech and happy with it, vs some who are dead against it, awaiting the “magic” battery to come out of blue.
Live and see, but one thing for certain, we never had the “perfect car” as far as conventional oil cars went – it taken a hundred odd years to get where we are with refined performances, reliability etc to meet ALL average car user demands.
Interest, consumer spending, and perseverance paved way to the above and one should reserve such attitudes towards “the Electric car” – inclusively, to ensure the success or the Green Eco Progress and our own well being.
